The Pest House

When her attempts to reinstate her annuity failed, Theresa Benenden killed herself in her home rather than be sent to the workhouse. She has been seen in the upper rooms and on the stairs here. Another phantom, former resident of Sissinghurst Castle Sir John Baker, haunts this location after he was tried and executed for murdering his former love and his new lady when she discovered his deed. His phantom is sometimes seen with a lady. However, other versions of the tale exist; one is that he lived to an old age and died in his bed; another is that he was tortured and burnt to death in an iron cage.
