Besides visiting the Anglican church at Wells-next-The Sea, Norfolk in May I paid a quick visit to the small catholic church as well. It is a late 19th.century church in a red-brick Dutch style and is the Catholic Church of Our Lady, Star of the Sea, the Stella Maris dedication that must have been common to many East Anglian coastal churches in the Middle Ages. There is a little porch, and an added continental flavour of having to go through an inner porch as well. Inside, the church is simple, traditional, all eyes focused east. A stone altar is surrounded by wooden panelling, and there are two side chapels, one to the Annunciation and one to the Sacred Heart.
