All Saints, Intwood

The southern fringe of the city of Norwich can seem as rural and remote as anywhere in the county. Intwood church, just beyond the suburbia of Eaton and Cringleford, stands above a deep-set meeting of lanes, with the great pile of Intwood Hall behind it. The parishes are densely packed around here. Inevitably, several fell out of use after the 16th century Reformation, and All Saints was one of them. When Henry Hobart bought Intwood Hall in the 1590s, he restored All Saints to use; principally for the view from the House, one assumes. he used the masonry of the similarly derelict All Saints church at Keswick, a mile or so off.
