St. Nicholas Priory Church (Great Yarmouth)

St. Nicholas Priory Church is the main church of Great Yarmouth in Norfolk.

Standing close to the large Market Place, it is a huge building, with the largest floor area of any church in England.

After the Reformation, St. Nicholas was divided into three areas, so that Anglicans, Independents and Presbyterians could all worship independently in their own styles.

The church was gutted by incendiary bombs during the Second World War in 1942. The restoration by Stephen Dykes Bower was completed in 1961, but now only for Anglicans, who worship in a fragment of this enormous building.
