East Anglia

The Diocese of East Anglia was created in 1976, out of the Diocese of Northampton. It covers principally the counties of Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, and Suffolk. The cathedral, dedicated to St John the Baptist, is in Norwich. It is a suffragan diocese in the Province of Westminster, and is subject to the Archdiocese of Westminster. 83 churches were visited for Taking Stock (concluded in February 2020).
