E-Bound’s 12 Ghosts of Xmas – Day #4

Join us as we share our 12 Ghosts of Xmas taking us right up to December 23rd 2022. 12 Haunted churches from across the UK.

Holy Trinity Church, Ingham, Norfolk

Ingham is the only Trinitarian house in Britain with any surviving buildings.

The chancel was rebuilt in the middle of the 14th Century just before the Black Death swept across England. The work was carried out at the expense of Sir Oliver de Ingham who has another more ghostly link to the church. Legend has it that on 1st August each year the two stone knights depicted within the church wake up. The stone effigies of Sir Oliver de Ingham and Sir Roger de Bois are said to leave the church and walk to Stalham Broad. Sir Roger de Bois is said to do battle with a middle eastern soldier and after defeating him the knights return to the church where they resume their sleep for another year.
