More than 150 local churches will be among almost 1,000 across Norfolk that will be throwing open their doors on Saturday to charity cyclists.
The 30th Norfolk Churches Trust Cycle Ride and Walk sees hundreds of people pedalling or striding between places of worship to raise money for their preservation and enhancement.
Churches to visit in our area include the landmark Booton Church, designed by Whitwell Elwin, and a host of medieval churches that are rarely visited.
But arguably the most quirky 'church' to visit is the ruins of the former Eccles church tower, on the beach near to the coastal village.
In 30 years, the ride and walk has raised more than £2.5m, with half given to the participant's chosen church and the remainder used by the trust to give grants to hundreds of church communities.
