Geocache Description:

The daily commute to Norwich can be a tedious journey at times so to break up the monotony I have placed a few Church Micro’s to help you navigate through the many villages that quietly zigzag their way along the edge of the A146

You are looking for a camo micro and will therefore need to BYOP and a log extractor


Parking is not ideal so please be aware of passing traffic….roads have always been quiet when I have visited the church. To get to the church you have to use a footpath that runs across the middle of a paddock….please keep dogs under control and do not spook the horses if you choose to visit the church

St Michael is enclosed within its own copse of trees, only the top of the tower giving the secret away. Nearby is Langley Grange, splendid enough in its own way. To get to the church, you have to cross a broad meadow on foot. Last time I visited the church a horse occupied the meadow. There is also an intriguing memorial stone for the journalist Deborah Hutton, who died in 2005 at the age of 49. The inscription reads And if I could ask you just one more thing It would be to go out and do a little kindness. Deborah 13 July 2005.

The church possesses a quiet gravitas in its own enclosed space. The exterior character of the church comes from a rebuilding in the 14th century and a restoration very early on in the 19th century. Almost certainly, there was a Norman church here once, and before that a wooden Saxon one, for these are the oldest English parishes of all. But the important thing about Langley church is inside, for this is one of several churches in this part of Norfolk which are home to parts of the Beauchamp Proctor collection of continental stained glass, and this is the largest and best grouping of them. The Beauchamp Proctors lived at Langley Park in the late 18th and early 19th Centuries, and the glass, much of it from Rouen in France, was imported for them by JC Hampp of Norwich.
