St Giles Church is a Grade I Listed and medieval building that is noted in the Doomsday Book. It was restored between 1866 - 1867 by Richard Phipson
its tower being the tallest in Norwich, at a height of 120 ft. The tower was meant to be seen from far away as it was always intended to be an important church. Today, it has become better known as St Giles-on-the-Hill and, together with its abundant beautiful and perfumed wisteria, still forms an important part of the townscape.
