Church History


Wrabness Parish Council Church History

All Saints Church Wrabness is the oldest building in Wrabness. Records date back 900 years to the time of King Henry I. The church fabric has been much altered and repaired over time. The walls of the church are built of septaria rubble and brick with dressings of limestone; the roofs are tiled. The church tower collapsed in the 17th century and the bell was moved to the wooden bell cage in the church yard which remains to this day. The church was reordered and extended in 1908. A full architectural description is available below.
