Norwich is blessed with one of the largest number of medieval churches in the world.

To celebrate this, the city is holding a three day festival called 'Flintspiration', to draw people in to learn more about their history and significance.

Watch a report by ITV News Anglia's Kate Prout.

"Even a modest job, to repair a crumbling church tower would cost about £150,000. Our architect at the moment reckons that with our 18 churches, and that's not including the ones run by the Diocese, there is at least £600,000 worth of work that needs doing"
