This young Giant Sequoia can be seen from the churchyard of St. Mary and St. Lawrence churches. St Mary’s dates from the late 13th century and is still used today as South Walsham’s parish church. St Lawrence’s was built in the following century, but in 1827 most of its building was destroyed by a fire that started across the road in a cattle yard behind The Ship public house. It spread over the road and ignited the thatched roof of the nave. The building has since been restored and is now a Centre for Training and the Arts and regularly stages concerts, art exhibitions, music and art classes.
