Place: Cromer,  Parish Church of St Peter & St Paul (Tucker Street) NR27 9ES

OS Grid Reference: TG2197142201, OS Grid Coordinates: 621971, 342201, Latitude/Longitude: 52.9313, 1.3013

Location: “This is the main church in the town and has a 160ft main tower. The exterior is a gargoyle hunter's heaven , with chimeras , imps , mouth pullers and tongue pokers on every aspect from rain water goods to adorning the tower ! Inside the Green man is visible on the bottom of columns supporting the roof trusses and in the ornate organ screen . I cannot put an age on the stonework , but would assume that the wood carving is early Victorian in the high gothic tradition mixed with symbolic ivy leaves and acorns.”
