The 50th anniversary of the passing of Felbrigg Hall into the hands of the National Trust will be marked by a special thanksgiving service.
Norfolk historian and biographer Robert Wyndham Ketton-Cremer's beloved home was passed to the trust after his death.
The Rev Janet Frymann will hold the service in St Margaret of Antioch's Church, Felbrigg on Sunday, September 22 at 5.30pm.
Trust representatives, as well as volunteer staff at the hall and at least one of Mr Ketton-Cremer's godchildren, will attend.
A spokesman said: "All those who love Felbrigg Hall, as well as anyone who has an interest in Mr Ketton-Cremer's historical works, is invited to the service to celebrate the anniversary."
