[Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]

LETHERINGSETT, picturesquely seated in the well-wooded valley of the Glaven, 1½ mile W. of [Holt], has in its parish 273 souls, and 844A. of land, belonging to several owners, the largest of whom is W.H.C. Hardy, Esq., who resides at the Hall, a handsome mansion with a Grecian portico, and beautiful gardens and plantations. His large brewery and malthouse are ornamental buildings, near the river, where a bridge was built by subscription, in 1818. The hall was erected and the grounds planted and laid out by the late W. Hardy, Esq.

The Church (St. Andrew,) has a round tower and three bells, and was built soon after the Conquest, by the Earl of Buckingham. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the King's Book at £12, and now having 27A. of glebe, a good residence, and a yearly rent of £253, awarded in 1839, in lieu of tithes. The Rev. Charles Codd, B.A., is patron and incumbent.

The poor have 3s. a year from the site of a cottage.
