The austere interior of the Friends Meeting House at Wymondham also seen in August 1950. With hard benches and a brick floor, a simple balcony and, shown here, the two-tier ministers gallery, the interior harked back to the earliest days of the assembly. Parts of the interior including the ministers gallery were destined to be shipped to the US. They were to grace a new meeting house called the Wymondham Room at Earlham College, Indiana, the Quaker college with whose foundation Joseph John Gurney was associated. Seen in the picture are Professor Elton Trueblood of Earlham College, his nine-year-old daughter Elisabeth and Mrs Arthur Eddington of Norwich. - Credit: Archant

From non-conformist churches to remote wayside chapels, East Anglia boasts a wealth of small Christian places of worship, bearing physical testimony to the strength of religious faith in the East.
