 RINGSTEAD: St. Peter's Church was     
 pulled down in 1771.All that remains  
 is a round Norman tower and some head-

 the church can be found in the walls  
 of barns and other buildings in the   
 village.                              
 St.Andrews Church,built in the 14th.

 brass portrait of a priest who served 
 twenty years at Ringstead until 1485. 
 OLD HUNSTANTON The old village had a

 his son.The Church was further        
 restored by Henry LeStrange in the    
 last century.        CONTINUED PAGE 14
