Hundreds of people gathered at a church to celebrate the completion of a £250,000 Heritage Lottery Fund building repair project.
The newly watertight Bressingham Church was host to 270 visitors from May 18-20.
Matthew Champion, an archeologist and historian specialising in medieval graffiti, gave a talk on the church's hidden history in the building on May 18.
A floral festival was also put on by nine groups who created country garden floral displays in the church.
A service of thanksgiving for the restoration of the church roof was led by the Bishop of Norwich, the Rt Rev Graham James, who emphasised the importance of Norfolk's churches as local landmarks, community hubs and as a spiritual resource.
