Parish History[edit | edit source]

Babingley St Mary and St Felix is an ancient parish with two churches or more accurately the old ruined church of St Felix and it's replacement "tin Tabernacle."

The chapel of St Felix is unique in East Anglia, and perhaps in England, as a thatched, cruciform 'tin tabernacle', a corrugated iron building constructed from a kit, probably made by Boulton and Paul of Norwich.

It was declared redundant by the Church of England and acquired by the British Orthodox church. When Anglicans locally rejected the ordination of women within the Church Of England they did not feel comfortable with conversion to Roman Catholicism but embraced the Orthodox tradition. 

BABINGLEY (St. Felix), a parish, in the union and hundred of Freebridge-Lynn, W. division of Norfolk, 8½ miles (N. N. E.) from Lynn. [1]
