Burgh Castle Church is close to the massive remains of the Roman Saxon Shore Fort of Garianonum and has long been presumed to be the site of a monastery established by the Irish saint Fursey in 633AD. Archaeological excavations have revealed evidence of Anglo Saxon occupation and a Christian burial site within the fort. We have strong links with the ecumenical Norwich based “Fursey Pilgrims”. , who in turn have links with Peronne in France.  (Website: A group seeking to encourage renewed interest in the life and times of this first named known missionary to this part of Norfolk and a deeper understanding of the spirituality of that era. An annual pilgrimage takes place on the first Saturday in October. Points of interest in the church are the wonderful stained glass windows and 13c “East Anglian Lion Font”
