Investigating Our Medieval Churches
We can understand more about a church through a close examination of its materials, plan and construction, as well as its signs, symbols and style, which can all reveal how the building was seen and used by the medieval citizens of Norwich. The three churches of St Peter Hungate, St Michael at Plea and St George Tombland, all within a couple of hundred yards of each other and all substantially rebuilt in the late middle ages, will reveal a wealth of detail that can contribute to our understanding. This tour will help us interpret the different features of church architecture and furnishings and equip us to approach these wonderful buildings with a practised and appreciative eye and help us to enjoy them better.
Tours take around 90mins.
