Between Coltishall and North Walsham lie the ruins of the medieval church of St Michael, in the tiny parish of Sco Ruston. Not far from a fairly well-used road, the ruins are nevertheless well hidden beneath a great deal of ivy: it's quite difficult to even get a sense of the shape of the exterior because of this. Yet the interior, despite the lack of a roof and the trees growing up through the floors, feels oddly spacious and preserved, in a forgotten kind of way. Midday winter light streaming through the doors gave a genuine sense of warmth.
The ruins are Grade II listed. The English heritage report includes the observation, "Much obscured by vegetation."
