The first edition of the St Andrew’s Northwold History and Guide was produced at speed in the summer of 1988 and has long since sold out. There is more to tell now and it is possible to reproduce not only the Ladbrooke engraving of the church as it was in 1821 but also an 1853 engraving of the Easter Sepulchre, together with photographs of the Sepulchre today and of other church memorials. This guide will help visitors, old and new, to explore the richness and diversity of St Andrew’s history and development.
