Rufford Old Hall

Elizabeth I is said to have been seen in the dining hall here; the second phantom is the "Grey Lady", said to be Elizabeth Hesketh, whose husband went to fight the Scots on the eve of their wedding day. He never returned and she vowed never to remove her bridal gown until he returned. Her dress is now said to "tattered and grey" and she is said to be solid-looking but casts no shadow. Finally, an Elizabethan man has been seen near the fireplace in the Great Hall. He may the same phantom reported to have been seen floating above the canal at the rear of the building.
