Youngsters were given an insight into the ’Orrible History of a beautiful West Norfolk hall.
About 14 children went along to Downham library to hear the gruesome past of the medieval Oxburgh Hall on Monday.
As part of the Halloween celebrations, the hall’s learning and engagement officer Amanda Sheard talked out the spooky side of Oxburgh.
She had also brought along costumes for youngsters to dress up as princesses and knights.
The library’s Elena Parkin said: “She talked about what it would have been like to hide in the priest’s hole.
“It was a really good session. Amanda had enthralled the children.”
