Church of St Margaret, Church Lane, Swannington - Broadland

Parish church dating from the C13 and C15, with wallpaintings, including one of St Christopher, and traces of others. The building suffers from ineffective ground drainage and rainwater penetration, making the interior very damp. The tower is also affected by damp. Repairs are progressing, assisted by a National Lottery Heritage Fund Grants for Places of Worship grant. Anticipated completion by summer 2020.
