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: continue down Swash Lane NR13 6QT.
Currently, Swash Lane is gated due to security concerns. Please contact the keyholder on 07858 370400 if you need to drive right up to the church.
If you are able to please could you make a donation via to the Trust to enable it to keep Norfolk’s Churches open for all and for the benefit of future generations.
