Parish History[edit | edit source]
Norwich, parl. and mun. bor., city, co. town of Norfolk, and co. in itself, on river Wensum, 20 miles W. of Yarmouth and 114 NE. of London by rail.Norwich St Andrew is an Ancient Parish in the City and Diocese of Norwich. Norwich St Andrew is inside the city of Norwich on St Andrew Street and just north of Norwich Castle and south of Blackfrairs Halls. It should not be confused with Thorpe St Andrew which is partially in Norwich.
The tower is the oldest part and dates from 1478 with the rest of the building erected by 1506, replacing an existing structure.
It had links to John Robinson, a freelance clergyman who became pastor to the Pilgrim Fathers before their emigration to the New World.
"St Andrew’s was a wealthy parish and the church was well situated on the main route from the market to the Cathedral with Princes Street being the traditional route to Tombland and the cathedral."
