Located in the market place in the heart of the medieval city of Norwich, St Peter Mancroft is the largest of the city’s 31 surviving medieval parish churches and one of the finest perpendicular parish churches in Norfolk. It is known for its medieval stained glass, its collection of medieval and renaissance treasures and its importance as a pioneering tower in the uniquely English art of change-ringing on church bells. John Wesley said of it: “I scarcely ever remember to have seen a more beautiful parish church; the more because its beauty, results not from foreign ornaments but from the very fine form and structure of it. It is very large, and of an uncommon height, and the sides are almost all window; so that it has an awful venerable look and, at the same time, surprisingly cheerful.”
