Photographer Denise Bradley takes a look around St Peter Mancroft Church, the largest church in Norwich after the two cathedrals. St Peter Mancroft was built between 1430 and 1455, and boasts a flemish tapestry from 1573 and a 15th century wooden canopy over the baptismal font, which the top half was restored for Queen Victoria's jubilee. Many parts of the interior are gilded, and lit with yellow lighting to show off the features.
