The church: St Margaret

  • This thirteenth-century church has three bells, which are used carillon-style to announce services.
  • The church is the only one in the benefice to benefit from a kitchen and a toilet.
  • Some of the services are led by the laity.
  • During 2007 a small car parking space was created at the east end of the churchyard, with a gravel path, providing disabled access to the church.
  • Thanks to a Heritage Lottery grant the church has undergone substantial refurbishment in 2018 and now has its own website at www.swanningtonchurchnorfolk.org.uk
