The village of Narford has almost disappeared through various clearances over the centuries. The Parish Church of St. Mary the Virgin stands a little way from the road and close to Narford Hall, the seat of the Fountaine family since the 17th century. Arrangements to view the church can be made with the Rector of the Nar Valley Group-c/o The Rectory, Narborough. The church is plain inside but has an interesting double sedillia and Easter sepulchre. The church and churchyard are reached along the " Church way" to the west of Narford Hall park grounds. Presently not used on a regular basis. Morning Prayer is said every Saturday morning from Easter until end of September - commencing at 9am. All welcome.

"Individuals who wish to make representations about safeguarding can make direct contact with the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser (email:email@example.com or 01603 882345).
However, recognising that this may not feel safe for those with a lived experience of abuse from within the Church, a dedicated telephone helpline - 0800 80 20 20 - operated independently from the Church, by the NSPCC is also available."
