Holy Trinity (High Street, Nordelph, Norfolk, PE38 0BL, UK) was a large church commissioned by the Reverend William Townley, and built in 1865 by the architect John Giles. The church eventually became derelict and was demolished in 2010. Between 1909 and 1944, the vicar at Nordelph was the Reverend Edwin Emmanuel Bradford (1860-1944), an English clergyman and Uranian poet and novelist. On December 9, 1935, the poet John Betjeman wrote in his private journal “Nordelph is miles away in the Norfolk fens, a village of two-storey houses most of them sloping on unsafe foundations strung about with telegraph poles and electric light poles. Had inestimable privilege of spending Sunday with the Reverend EE Bradford DD, author of “Passing the Love of Women” and many other volumes of verse. He has been Vicar of Nordelph since 1917 and is now 75. A modernist, but likes ritual. Last boyfriend called Edmund. Not had a boyfriend for 30 years. V happy with Nordelph. A Saint & thinks laws against sexuality wicked cruel and out of date.”
