St. Peter's Church, Ridlington
The quiet and small parish of Ridlington is situated about 1 mile inland from the coast and is made up of farmland, woodland and heathland. The church, St Peter, is located on the Happisburgh to North Walsham road. It is a small medieval church with a grade 1 listed building status. The font and chancel arch date from C13th and the church is one of the few surviving examples of thatched roofing using reed from the nearby Norfolk Broads. The church is home to some bat, who "maternity roost" during June and July. The enthusiastic PCC are actively seeking Heritage Lottery and other grants to restore the church to both comfortable worship and a venue for community events. Services are held regularly on the first Sunday of each month at 3pm - all are welcome. The church is open every day and is great place for rest and reflection. Please help yourself to refreshments, which are provided just inside the church. Local walkers and cyclists on Route 30 of the National Cycle Network, which travels through the village, will find this a welcome and peaceful place to catch breath!
