What is possibly the most atmospheric carol service in Norfolk returns with all welcome.

The annual candlelit carol service in the redundant St Andrew’s church at Frenze, the only service of the year in this lovely tiny church, takes place today (December 18) at 7pm.

It is a chance to experience the joy of carols and the age old Christmas story in this historic church, dating back to the 13th century, that sits prettily in a farmyard setting.

The simple building with a Tudor brick porch and a bell-cote, accessed from Walcott Green, is noted as one of the most distinctive and is looked after by the Churches Preservation Trust.

Inside there are beautiful brasses, showing men and women in medieval dress, and centuries-old pews with lovely carvings - including two little monkeys.

Anyone heading to the carol service is advised to wrap up warm and take a torch as there is no electricity, just a fantastic atmosphere that has been nurtured for hundreds of years.
