St. Mary's Church

Welcome to St. Mary's Church, North Tuddenham

Welcome. For service details and other events happening here, please see pages elsewhere on the website. With the Covid-19 situation changing regularly, please check in the News section.

Unfortunately the deterioration  of the structure of St Mary’s Church Tower, particularly the two buttresses, has meant we have had to put up fencing and warning signs around the west end of the church near the entrance.

The robust fencing is to keep people away from the tower because we have be warned that the possibility of collapse is very real.

We do realise that people may want to tend to the graves of their loved ones at this time of year,  but please be very careful.

We are unable to facilitate visitors to the church at this present time.

We pray that our efforts to secure the required finances to restore the tower will be successful and that work can be started in 2021.’

R & R project in ASM

A major project is getting under way at All Saints, Mattishall, to provide for a new servery, a new toilet, conversion of the tower room into a proper room and a significant amount of extra storage space. Here is a link to the videos used at that service on 11th July 2021.

Please note that these online videos do not have the additional directions (Alan pointing at things with the mouse pointer) which were available on screen when shown live at ASM, but they are still clear.

A diagram showing the proposed new layout is downloadable from HERE. Note there is one small error in the diagram, i.e. we do not plan to have a worktop over the radiator in the north-west corner. Apart from that, the diagram is accurate.

15th July 2021 addition: Two (similar) views of how the new servery (not a kitchen!) is intended to look are now available at HERE and HERE.

After passing North Tuddenham village hall on your left, turn right at the crossroads then immediately left. After a short distance on your left side is a sign marking the entrance to a land leading to St. Mary's. There is a small amount of parking space at the end of the lane on your left, but you may wish to swing round at the end and head back out slightly and park on the left side of the lane.
If coming from the Norwich direction, leave the A47 at the exit marked "N. Tuddenham" then turn left onto Fox Lane. Pick up the instructions from that point from those above.
