Haveringland Hall is a noble mansion, lately erected of Bath stone, in the Corinthian style; the park contains some very fine trees, especially of oak, birch, and Spanish chesnut. The living is a vicarage, now sequestrated, valued in the king's books at £4. 12. 1.; net income, £63; patron and impropriator, Edward Fellowes, Esq. The church, which is picturesquely situated in the park, is in the later English style, and consists of a nave and north aisle, with a circular tower. Here was a chapel dedicated to St. Lawrence, founded by William Gisneto, and afterwards given to the convent of Wymondham, to which it became a cell for a prior and Black canons.
