History[edit | edit source]

Norwich St Julian has an international reputation, as it was here that Dame Julian of Norwich lived in the later 14th century.

The building as it now stands dates almost entirely from 1953, when it was rebuilt after suffering a direct hit from a bomb in 1942. The church was also reconsecrated in 1953.It was re-established as a place of prayer by the Anglican Sister of All Hallows, Ditchingham.

There is good reason to believe that a church has stood here since Anglo-Saxon times, although whether the destroyed building was of Saxon date, or Saxon workmanship but post-1066, is difficult to decide.

St Julian is within the modern parish of St John the Baptist Timberhill.
