Riby - St Edmunds (Photos supplied by church)
Our wonderful cruciform church which can be enjoyed on Saturday, open 1pm-4pm accompanied by tea and cake. Sunday visitors come and join us for our famous Big Breakfast served between 8.30am-11.30am, seated down the aisle. The church was rebuilt in 1863, see hatchments, 12th century blocked doorway and more.  Our three bells may be ringing or 14th century perpendicular tower can be climbed together with a view of Thwaites and Reed clock.  We have cakes, produce and plants available to buy on both days.

  1. What a great job you are doing on this site. We are beginning to get our plants in pots to sell on our large plant stall we have over our weekend.

      Thank you very much Sally!

  2. We are building up to the Big Breakfast on Sunday 11th with lots of cakes, preserves and brilliant plants - particularly vegetables. Come and choose your tomatoes, cucumbers, aubergines, peppers and many more! St Edmund is our theme - he was the 1st Patron Saint of England and there is a lot of support to make him that again.
