A popular village church will hold a series of open days later in the year.
The Victorian St Ethelbert Church at East Wretham held open days in 2016 as part of an experiment.
The church – which contains a wall organ and font cover paintings by the Rev James P Whalley, rector when it was rebuilt in 1864-65 – is usually closed to visitors.
However following the success of the previous open days, it will be open for four Sundays in August and two in September in 2017.
The church also has a display relating to the Czech and Polish war graves in the churchyard.
