Creake Abbey Houses
The Creakes stand out in gentle north-west Norfolk because their two parish churches are so huge; this in a part of the county where there are so many sleepy little near-ruins set on their own among the high-hedged narrow lanes. Externally, the two churches are grand; but where South Creake's has a magical interior that is at once wholly rural and numinous, North Creake church is a vast urban Anglo-catholic temple that could as easily be in the centre of Bristol or Norwich. This is testament to its late 19th century Tractarian makeover, and also something about the austerity of that vast, aisle-less south side. This is a church to be impressed by, but not one to easily fall in love with. .
