Norwich Saint Andrew Church.



Saint Andrews Church Norwich City, at 2am on January 1st 1845, had its lead rolled off its roofs not this time by thieves, but by perilous storms, the rolled up lead was blown by the wind a considerable distance. The Norfolk Chronicle added the lead weighed 456lb and broke down the wall for between 10 and 12 yards on the south side of the church. On the same day Mulbarton Church was also damaged. Mr Dennis King discussed with his brother Eric panels which came from The Deanery in the Close, and now form part of the glazing of St. Andrew’s Chapel, Norwich. The 16th century heraldic glass is now rearranged and releaded, and dated 9th June 1961.
