Long Description:
One winter night in 1965, the tower collapsed in a storm. Thankfully, it fell away from the many Norfolk churches were being declared redundant, it must have seemed an unlikely prospect that it would ever be rebuilt. The ruins were made tidy, And then something a little unlikely happened. A Canadian architect and businessman, Leeds Richardson, whose ancestors are buried in the churchyard, offered to pay for the rebuilding of the tower in its exact original form.
