Phantom Viking warriors on horseback are said to appear every 2nd April in this area of Norfolk. The raiding party materialises late at night and heads towards the bridge, blowing horns and crackling whips. A herd of terrified ghostly cattle is seen running before them.

According to local legend, two stone knights, Sir Oliver de Ingham and Sir Roger de Bois, are said to wake up once a year (1st of August) and walk down to Stalham Broad where, accompanied by a faithful hound, Sir Roger engages in battle with a Middle Eastern soldier. After defeating him, the two knights return to the church where they resume their sleep for another year.
Dancing monks are also said to haunt the area.

This picture above is considered to be one of the most intriguing photos ever taken of an apparition.
The Reverend K.F. Lord took this picture of the altar of his church in North Yorkshire in 1963. When the photograph was developed he was shocked to discover a shrouded figure standing in front of the altar. The Reverend was adamant that he had been alone in the building when the photo was taken.
The photo and negative were thoroughly examined by photographic experts who confirmed that the figure had not been caused by double exposure. There were also no signs that the photo or negative had been tampered with. Further analysis showed the figure to be at least nine feet tall!
The Church of Christ the Consoler had been built as a memorial to Frederick Vyner who, aged 23, was captured and murdered by brigands in Greece in 1870. His mother used the money collected for his ransom to commission the architect William Burges to build the church (constructed between 1871 and 1876) in the grounds of her home at Newby Hall.
The church did not have a reputation as a haunted building prior to the photo being taken. Nor had it been built on the site of an earlier church or religious building. The apparition has not been seen or photographed since.
