INTRODUCTION TO NORWICH CHURCHES
Discover the unparalled richness and diversity of Norwich’s churches and the techniques used to interpret them. Norwich has one of the most important collections of mediæval churches in Europe – a reflection of its wealth in the Middle Ages. On this course we will explore the thirty-one remaining churches as a means of discovering their design, development, art, and architecture, and also examine the ‘lost’ churches. We shall also look at the problems of maintaining these buildings, and how they can be repurposed when no longer needed for worship.
Classes will be held in the Town Close Room at St Martin-at-Palace from 19:00-21:00, with a short coffee break at 20:00. If you wish to come direct from work, the church will be open from 17:30, and you are welcome to being sandwiches, etc, to eat before classes start; drinks will be available.
