St. Michael & All Angels, Knights Emham

I had been looking forward to visiting this church as it is part of The Small Pilgrim Places Network. I haven’t yet visited any of these, in large part because most of them are far away from me. Knights Emham is the nearest. The SPPN website (http://www.smallpilgrimplaces.org/index.php)  says-

‘Small Pilgrim Places are:

  • Spaces for pondering, breathing, meditating, praying, and ‘being’
  • Small places, not those already on the map, well-known, or that draw crowds;
  • Simple, quiet and unpretentious, with the presence of the Divine;
  • Can be in places of worship, gardens, ruins, open air space, holy wells, etc.;
  • Welcoming and inclusive.’For this church it does say that it is open each day, as does the noticeboard outside. It wasn’t today! I was disappointed so tried to phone both the vicar and the churchwarden who’s details are helpfully displayed. No reply was forthcoming.Otherwise, this church appears to be doing the right things to welcome people. It is well signposted from the main road with 2 brown signs (coming south down the A343) and a home made one to direct visitors down the lane the church is on. I know that problems happen but it is was a disappointing result to my visit. I will come again but have to rate this church as very poor. I think that it will be very good if I can get in!
  • There is a church website at http://www.knightsenham.org.uk/ but it doesn’t say anything about visitors
