Three Churches in one Churchyard, Reepham
Three Churches in one Churchyard, Reepham
There are several Norfolk examples of two churches sharing one churchyard but Reepham is one of only two places in Europe to have three churches on the same site.

St Maryís (background): St Maryís is now Reephamís parish church and it is used regularly for worship. Like many ancient churches, it has been much altered over the centuries and is difficult to date precisely. It was certainly begun by the 1200s, enlarged in the 1300s and then heavily restored in the 1800s. St Maryís is a Grade I listed building. LinkExternal link

St Michaelís (foreground): St Michaelís was probably built a little after St Maryís. Its fine tower dates from the late 1300s, with much of the building restored in the 1800s. Still used as place of worship but more often as a community hall, the interior has now been changed to suit new and contemporary uses. St Michaelís is a Grade II* Listed Building. LinkExternal link

All Saints (not in the photograph): All that remains above ground is a fragment of the porch wall. After a great fire in 1543, the church fell into ruin and was demolished in 1796.
