St Christopher, Norwich
When the parishes of Norwich were rationalised after the protestant Reformation, the city was left with 36 of them, some tiny, others sprawling: packed, as Larkin observed, like squares of wheat. But St Christopher was not around to be one of them. Although mentioned in Domesday, it was probably a late Saxon foundation, since St Christopher is not a common dedication for an early Christian church. It sat on the corner of what are now Redwell Street and Princes Street, and you could almost reach out and touch St Peter Hungate from here. St Andrew and the Blackfriars Church were also within view.
