St Edmund's Church is Grade I Listed and is medieval, dating from the 13th century. The nave was restored in the 1860s. The building suffered damage in the War, and when Cautley visited in 1946 he was unable to get inside. For years after that, the church deteriorated until it was little more than a shell. However, St Edmund is one of the few churches that appears to have benefited from the Brooke Report of the late 1960s, which resulted in large numbers of the Norwich city centre churches being declared redundant and threatened with demolition. Renewed interest in caring and finding new uses for Norwich's redundant churches, led to its repair and renovation by the Norfolk Churches Trust.
