In Church burials

Rustic Church floor - Mid Norfolk

© Godric Godricson


This is a brick floor from a Church in Mid Norfolk. It is representative of many Churches in rural Norfolk that don't have the rich marble flooring of urban and more developed Churches. Rural parishes are exactly that and we can imagine boots and rough shoes clattering over the bricks as people entered and left the Churches. 

Medieval burials in Churches are often covered in the 18th Century by this sort of material as parishes sought to cover up the uneven floors surfaces and make floors more convenient and comfortable
