Tunstall SS Peter and Paul Church

Tunstall SS Peter and Paul Church,  near Acle, the square tower and nave of this church are in ruin. The chancel was restored in 1853, and is the only part now used for Divine service. There is a turret with 1 bell. the style is mainly late 14th century with some brickwork dating from 1705, a 14th century church, replacing an earlier church mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. Only the chancel and a 19th century vestry are roofed, the nave and west tower being in ruins. The church fell into disuse after the nave roof fell in about 1660. The chancel was repaired in 1705 and returned to use, but by 1980, the building was again disused. However, there is now an annual Thanksgiving service in the chancel, organised by the Tunstall Church Preservation Trust. Once a fine church, with good 14th century windows in nave, but all gone, only a plain chancel remains in use and has a plain 15th century font with traceried bowl. The church holds registers from 1577.
