The ruin of St Mary's chapel, Mannington Hall
When the parishes of Mannington and Itteringham were combined in 1780, St Mary's church - in the grounds of Mannington Hall > LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link - became redundant and served as a mausoleum for the Earls of Orford of Mannington Hall. The church is long ruined and has recently been added to the English Heritage 'Buildings at Risk' list (one of five new Norfolk additions to the national register of heritage at risk). The well maintained, roof- and towerless shell still houses a number of monuments, the old font and a broken stone coffin. The 2nd Lord Orford is believed to have destroyed a tomb belonging to the Scalmers family, former owners of Mannington Hall, and ever since then the church is said to be haunted by the ghost of a female member of said family.
