The Manor House

There are a multitude of claims for this building. A man in Medieval garb has been reported walking through a now sealed-off door in the Great Hall, while in the South Solar, "young men" have been seen; they may be a spectral remnant of a fight outside the Manor House in the 14th century, where a brother killed his sibling. In the chapel area, a former landlord used to close the curtains every evening - only to find them open in the morning. In addition, a monk has been seen in the grounds outside the chapel (this figure may also have been seen in the Great Hall). One group heard footsteps in the bar area approach them. The steps sounded as if they were made on concrete but the floor was carpetted over. When the steps got close to the group, they heard a loud sigh. In addition, a shadow was seen behind a staff member in the mirror of the ladies toilets (this was seen in a photograph and was not visible at the time); this may also be the source of a story about "a mysterious face" peering back out of a mirror. Other phenomena include; a tour guide in the kitchen area feeling the sensation of being grabbed and being pushed down on the shoulders - and then seeing a shadow nearby; the sound of children playing; a phantom cat; footsteps; dancing lights; screams; cries; the sound of horses outside; and a boy and girl climbing and sitting on the staircase. Other visible apparitions include a phantom barman, a glowing red silhouette of a person, a black bearded man and a white haired lady.
