With its massive nave, high well-preserved roof and uniquely tiled walls, beautiful east window, recently restored tower window containing medieval glass (from 8th July), rood screens depicting martyrs and saints, and Victorian windpipe organ, this church has plenty of features to marvel at.

How To Find Us

To reach St. Mary's Church, we recommend you have a good look at it on Google Maps! If coming from the Dereham direction, bear left off the A47 at turn off marked "N. Tuddenham". Turn right as soon as you are off the A47 then next right into Fox Lane and follow the road over the top of the A47. 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.
If coming from the Mattishall direction, head down Burgh Lane from Mattishall and at the end, turn left onto an unnamed road marked towards "North Tuddenham". Follow the road, bearing right. Keep on this road until you head slightly down a hill to cross the river Tud and ascend the other side. The entrance to the lane down to St. Mary's is at the top of the hill on your right.
