Volunteer “alarmed” by the grisly discovery in Oak Wood.
Sheringham Park is looking blooming marvellous following the recent sunshine.
And a rhododendron party held at the National Trust site on Saturday night was sold out.
But one of the sights at the landscaped park and gardens, which is popular with locals and visitors alike, has a darker side.
National Trust staff revealed one volunteer worker was left “alarmed” after spotting what appeared to be a hand poking out of the ground in Oak Wood on Sunday.
It turned out to be a fungi appropriately called ‘Dead Man’s Fingers’.
A post on Sheringham Park NT’s Facebook page joked: “I cannot think where it got its name from?”
