The distinctive round tower church at Great Ryburgh, near Fakenham, will be home to an arts festival this weekend.
Nestled in the upper Wensum Valley, the church will house an exhibition of paintings and sculpture, ceramics, stained glass and local history.
It will also coincide with two First World War commemorative peals.
St Andrew’s is believed to bed the only church in the country to have honoured each of its fallen with a three hour peal of bells. Thirty five have been rung since November 2014 and the forty second will have been reached by Armistice Day.
A preview evening will take place on Friday August 24 between 7pm and 9pm.

Refreshments will be available and proceeds towards church funds.
