The parish church of All Saints is, unusually, a relatively long way out of the village. We called in there on a Sunday morning, arriving at the end of a service, and were welcomed by the local congregation. We were made to feel very welcome and were even offered coffee. What a friendly bunch of people!

This church appears to have existed in the 13th century but was largely rebuilt in the 14th century. So what's special about this church? Have a close look at the roof - it's thatched! There are not many churches in Britain that have thatched rooves.

Another view of Salhouse Broad.

The majority of the Broads in Norfolk were caused by the removal of peat during medieval times and the resulting depressions filled with water creating the lakes we now know. However Salhouse Broad is, I believe, unique in that it was caused by gravel extraction.
