The ruined church of St Margaret
The ruined church of St Margaret
The tower is all that remains of St Margaret's church, in the grounds of Wolterton Park. When St Margaret's church was torn down the Walpoles of Wolterton Hall adopted St Andrew's church in neighbouring Wickmere; some furnishings were moved to there, such as an unknown number of the rood screen panels > LinkExternal link presently fixed to the 1930s pulpit > LinkExternal link believed to depict the donors.

Wolterton Hall > LinkExternal link was built by the architect Thomas Ripley in the 1920s for Horatio Walpole, younger brother of Britain's first Prime Minister Sir Robert Walpole. On the death of the 3rd Earl in 1858 the Hall was abandoned until 1905, when the Earl moved back in. Ever since the present Earl inherited the property in 1989 there has been a programme of reorganisation, conservation and research into the rich family history of the Walpoles and the Hall now houses an extensive collection of family portraits.
