Rackheath, All Saints

Rackheath Magna, as it was known in 12th century, was made redundant in the 1970s and the Norfolk Churches Trust acquired the lease in February 1981.

The church itself is full of light thanks to the clear glass. There is a fine thirteenth century arcade and an interesting hexagonal font dating from 1639 which was damaged when the church became redundant. There are also some very fine and elegant memorials to the Pettus and Stracey families.

All Saints is signposted with a brown Heritage sign on the Wroxham Road, and continue down Swash Lane NR13 6QT.

Unfortunately, due to recent vandalism All Saints has had to be locked until the damage is repaired.  If you wish to visit the church, please contact Roger Lebbell, the keyholder on 07858 370440, or the Trust office in advance to arrange a convenient time to visit.
