Nestling in the wide bend of the River Waveney, the church is the most south-easterly in Norfolk, and has wide views across marsh and farmland. Burgh St Peter and Wheatacre were originally known as Wheatacre Burgh and records show there being two churches – St Peter’s and All Saints. Sometime after the mid C18, they became separate villages and the dedication of this church was changed to St Mary. Several interesting features most notably the Ziggurat tower.
