Church of St Peter, Corpusty and Saxthorpe - North Norfolk

Medieval former church, now in the care of the Norfolk Churches Trust, which has completed an extensive scheme of external fabric repairs. In spite of several substantial repair projects in recent past, the pews and floors are unsafe. Further repairs are required, especially to the detaching plasterwork and dangerous floors. Talks ongoing with the village as to whether they are able to take on the building and, if so, whether a suitable new use can be found. Interior unsafe to access.
