The church: St Peter

  • St Peter's commands a lovely position on a small hill (an unusual sight in this part of the world!). It dates from the late 13th century (Tower), and 14th and 15th centuries (Nave and Chancel). It has five bells; however, these are currently unsafe to ring.
  • Where possible, the church is open 10am until 4pm (or dusk, whichever is earlier); however, we cannot always guarantee that the church will be open. The keyholders are as follows:
    • Dian Frost 01603 868979
    • Elaine Lockett 01603 860026
    • Eileen Pearson 01603 868500
  • Ringland was brought into the Wensum Group of Churches in 2005, having previously been for many years part of a benefice with Taverham.

The village

  • You can see more photographs of, and information about, the village at its own website.
  • Ringland is also known for its connection with the artist Alfred Munnings.
  • The village pub (The Swan) also incorporates the Taste of Oz Restaurant & Bar.
  • There is a total population of around 215.
  • There is a village hall (a converted Methodist chapel, known locally as the Reading Room), used regularly for parish and village events.
