The village of Castle Acre is a major tourist centre for Norfolk. The church of St. James stands in the middle of the village amidst the ruins of the Norman Castle and those of Castle Acre Priory. Visitors can often miss the church which is a great shame for it contains many interesting features, including the wine glass pulpit illustrated above. Plus the medieval rood screen and font cover. The Friends of Castle Acre Church assist with raising funds to maintain this fine church.
In 2018 we completed a major restoration to the Church Tower - if you would like to help with further funding, donations may be sent to the church treasurer Mr Martin Webster, c/o Woodford Lodge, Tittleshall, Norfolk PE32 2PF - thank you. Cheques should be made payable to the Castle Acre Church Restoration Fund.
In 2020 we turn our attention to the restoration of the Chancel roof at a cost of in excess of £150,000.
