Record Details

NHER Number:12093
Type of record:Building
Name:Mannington Hall Farm

Summary

The farm here consists of a farmhouse and several brick buildings. The present farmhouse is of about 1790 but contains a 16th century fireplace and window, which could indicate that the building has an earlier core. The grand brick barn is of a similar date as are other brick farm buildings, and many reuse older timbers. Archaeological observations carried out here in 2003 noted four pieces of medieval worked stone, which possibly came from the ruined parish church of Itteringham (NHER 6663).
