The Church

Banningham is an unusual church in the middle of the village, with a multi-stage tower and a thatched chancel.

Inside is a fine collection of early stained glass, including an image of a church and an angel with eyed feathers.

There are several wall paintings in the nave, including St George and the dragon, and St Christopher. These are clearly earlier than the windows that neatly cut off the corners of the paintings.

The church is very active and supported by a caring local Friends Group. Part of the churchyard is managed for wildlife.

Our Work

Banningham church is home to both Common and Soprano Pipistrelle and Brown-long Eared bats.

The church can generally cope with cleaning so the project provided advice and cleaning equipment. The church was keen to give more information about its bats and have been provided with a range of interpretation.

In summer 2023 church also hosted the On A Wing & A Prayer art installation,  and hopes to host it again in coming years.
