History[edit | edit source]

Norwich St Peter Parmentergate is an Ancient Parish Church and was presented by Roger Bigod to the Cathedral Priory in the late eleventh century. In the fifteenth century it was completely rebuilt, financed by the prosperity of its location on a main route through the city, close to the merchants' quays. St Peter Parmentergate became redundant in 1981. From 1994 the vestry has been leased by the Norwich Historic Churches Trust to the Magdalene Group for their work with prostitutes. In 2005, after being empty for some time, the main church building became the Norwich Centre for Martial Arts.

Also known as St Peter Mountergate.
