Reepham, Saint Michael and All Saints




The reason there are three churches in one graveyard is said to be the fact that long ago, three sisters each built a church when the others had all fallen out. The real fact is the three nearest villages, Whitwell, Hackford and Reepham cum Kerdiston all amalgamated and formed the one parish of Reepham, this 1935. Each set up a church there. This church, Now called Saint Mary's. As the churches were built, they stood as Saint Michael's Whitwell, visible from the village square (car park), this joined onto Saint Mary's, and finally out the front of then both another church that burnt down apart from the wall shown today and a tower. This fire happened during The Great Fire of Reepham in 1543. The tower later falling down in a storm. Saint Mary's has an ancient stone font this is the only font that has survived from all three churches, it is used for Baptisms and a service of celebration. near the font is The Churchyard Cross, this is said to have marked the spot where the three parishes met. The figures of a crucified Jesus, Saint Mary, Saint John, saint Michael, Saint Andrew and Saint Christopher are shown. At Reepham, there is a tomb to Sir Roger De Kerdiston, showing the Weepers!
Before leaving note the 1400s iron scroll work on the vestry tower door.
