The remains of a Norman Chapel, built to a unique design in England, on this site stands an earlier timber church. it was probably even a Saxon cathedral of East Anglia. This ruin is in co-operation of English Heritage. Cathedral church of the period 673 to 1070, when it was removed to Thetford, This was not a monastic church, but remained as a cell to a mother church of the diocese after 1070. The Bishops of the diocese had a palace here for some time after the removal. The remains of the cathedral are seen near to the parish church and are of great interest. Offa, an Anglo-Saxon King of East Anglia, concerned about the succession to the throne, chose a relative, the young Saxon prince Edmund. After the King's death, Edmund, at the age of around 14, crossed the North Sea and landed at Hunstanton in AD 855. He spent a year there and at Attleburgh studying under the saintly bishop Humbert of Elmham: it is said he learned the Psalter by heart. Edmund was crowned by bishop Humbert at Bures Saint Mary, Suffolk, on Christmas Day 856. He ruled well for about a decade.
