About the event

Churches with round towers are a distinctive architectural feature in the landscape of East Anglia.  As such they have aroused interest and comments from locals and visitors alike.  In looking at these round towers we will consider the three questions which most people ask about them. 

  1. Why were they built round?
  2. How old are they?
  3. How were they built?

We shall also consider how efforts are made to conserve them for future generations.
