Church of St Margaret, Church Lane, Swannington - Broadland

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. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship grant was accepted in late 2016 and repairs are underway.
