St Mary's church - view west
Three churches share the same churchyard: Reepham's church of St. Mary is joined by its choir vestry to St. Michaelís (its tower facing the Market Place,) once serving the parish of Whitwell, and a third church, All Saints, which served the parish of Hackford. All Saints church was destroyed in the fire of 1543 and all that remains is a short section of wall, covered by vegetation, in the southwestern corner of the churchyard > TG1022 : Remains of All Saints Church.

Services are being held at St Michael's > Link - Link - Link at least three times a month and the church is also used for social and fundraising events; presently closed to the public, a redevelopment group is seeking to modernise the interior of the building (with the backing of the PCC) and it is hoped that the chancel will be open after the refurbishment, as a quiet place for people to go and also to provide an opportunity for viewing the Art Nouveau window by Reginald Framton - the window forms part of the war memorial for Whitwell and Hackford.

St Mary's church > TG1022 : St Mary's church - chancel - TG1022 : St Mary's church - east window, extensively restored in the 19th century, is open every day. The perhaps most noteworthy survival from medieval times is an altar tomb to Sir William de Kerdiston, on a bed of stones > TG1022 : St Mary's church - Kerdiston tomb. The square font dates from Norman times > TG1022 : St Mary's church - baptismal font. For more information see: LinkExternal link
