A foggy blog: three hours, two legs and nearly 40 churches (Part B)

Turn left down Westlegate. The church to your right, dwarved by Norwich’s best loved (this is most definitely sarcasm) tower block, is All Saints Church. The graveyard here is almost level with the top of my head! 


Continue down Westlegate and cross St Stephen’s Street. Climb up Rampant Horse Street and St Stephen’s church is on your left just past the twinkling lights of M&S. Chapelfield shopping centre is just behind it. 


Carry on up the hill and cross the road to the Forum. Opposite the entrance is St Peter Mancroft, often mistaken as one of the city’s cathedrals. It is easy to see why as it dominates its immediate area in a way that few other Norwich churches do, except perhaps St John de Sepulchre and St Giles which sit at the top of hills (Norfolk does actually have them!)
