Little Snoring church

Little Snoring church
St Andrew is remarkable for having a tower that is detached from the rest of the church. The two sit together on a mound above the road. The south side of the graveyard has been largely cleared of headstones, but there are some fine 18th and 18th century ones that line the path.
The round tower is doubly attractive; not only is it free standing, but it is topped by a little 18th century conical cap with tiny gables and a spike.

Many thanks, Doug. It had been very sunny for most of the day. I was happy with a bit more cloud.

Hello Amelia! Little snoring? A zippy minister, then? :) An attractive wee church, but a pity about the gravestones though... Regards, Ian

A zippy minister indeed, Ian. The village up the road is not so lucky with its preacher. It's called 'Great Snoring', ;-)

Thank you, Schussentaler. The round towers are not very typical, but they are fairly common in Norfolk

Best wishes ... Steve

We'd been to the seaside, Steve, and i was permitted 2 stops only on the way back. The other stop was at Great Snoring here I bagged another village sign. ;-)

A pretty little church - I love the small hat on the tower.

I didn't realise Little Snoring was a real place!

I love the subtle play between light and shadow across this scene, Amelia. The sun is at just the right height and angle to give a three-dimensional feel to your image. Cheers, Joe

Die Briten haben die schönsten Kirchen und die mit Abstand schönsten Friedhöfe! Hätte ich die Wahl, würde ich mich in Kintyre beerdigen lassen auf meinem "Lieblingsfriedhof" nahe Southend. Best regards, Karl

It's very easy to miss photos AND replies, Andy. I am 7 weeks late here. It's a lovely little church, and i would have liked to go inside, but we were short of time.

Enjoy your Christmas, Amelia
