All Saints Church, Burnham Sutton-cum-Ulph, Norfolk

Scroll down to content

I keep meaning to visit this little church, which I photographed on a drive by in 2016, but its on the list now.  Why……In the late 18th century the rector of Ulph was Edmund Nelson, father of Admiral Horatio Nelson. Revd. Nelson.  One of my great grandfathers, many times removed, served on HMS Victory, not sure if he was on aboard at the same time as Nelson, but you never know, so therefore I am interested in all that is Nelson.  

All Saints was probably the first church to be built in the Burnham area and was probably begun in the late Saxon period. The oldest parts of the present building date to around 1190, which makes me want to visit even more, as I have read there are some Early Norman chancel arch capitals to see.  So roll on some nice weather.

    1. I think I have visited the remains, but have yet to do a post about them. Still having problems with moving, 2 houses on the go, does not leave a lot of time to post 🙂
