|Alvingham, St Adelwold*|
An unusual setting of two churches within one churchyard – St Mary’s, formerly serving North Cockerington and currently in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust, and St Adelwold’s now ministering the communities of Alvingham, North Cockerington and Yarborough. Both buildings stand in the former grounds of a 12th century Gilbertine Priory, and St Mary’s church, believed to be an eleventh century priory chapel, has examples of Saxon and Norman stonework and a Saxon window on the north side of the Chancel. St Adelwold’s stands on the site of a Saxon church and has a rare thirteenth century west tower. Victorian and early twentieth century restoration has masked much of the original interior.
