This beautiful corner of North Norfolk is a good place to live. Five small communities are linked together by a stream, the Scarrowbeck, which gives the parish churches of the area a name that identifies and unites them in a renewed sense of vision. This website attempts to show who we are, what's going on, and where to find us.
Rev. Brian Faulkner
is our interim Priest in Charge and he is the person to call for baptisms, marriages and funerals and on any other matter you think he might help you with.
