Ripley Castle

A nun haunts this building, knocking on people's doors at night. She only enters when invited though. A "Smoking Man" has been seen in the great hall, and a ghost that tugs at bedclothes is said to be Lady Alicia Ingilby who lived here in the 19th century (some reports say it is she who knocks on doors). The bottom half of a female ghost has been seen to walk through two sets of closed doors (incidentally, Lady Alicia is also said to walk through a locked door!), where poltergeist-like activity also occurs - the entity is said to become agitated at the sound of crying babies. Soldiers from the Civil War are also said to haunt the building. Catholic priest Frances Ingilby is said to haunt a priest hole, where he was found and later executed.
