Over the years St. Andrew and St. Peter’s church has provided solace and inspiration for many thousands of Blofield parishioners and visitors. Now we begin our project of developing a community area in the building which we hope will encourage all to love and enjoy our church as much as we do.

Daily Hope

Have you heard of the Paston family?

The Paston family wrote a prodigious number of letters in the 15th century which have been saved and teach us much of life in those times. Edward Paston, 1550 – 1630, had a Manor House in Blofield and was buried in Blofield Church. One of the most prominent Norfolk families is getting a huge boost from the Heritage Lottery Fund – and it will enable people across the county and beyond to join up the dots in its 300 year history.

The 600 Paston Footprints Project will, over a three year period, engage with 11 key centres in Norfolk (Paston, Bacton, North Walsham, Gresham, Mannington, Oxnead, Hellesdon, Blofield, Mautby/Caister, Norwich and Dereham) to work with and support local community groups, schools, walkers, churches, museums and the owners of key sites, to provide resources, information boards, events, activities, workshops, podcasts, booklets, and maps of heritage trails and cycle routes. Look out for Blofield’s part in this exciting venture.
