Darlington Town Hall

Lady Jarrett lived in the (now demolished) Bishop's Palace and her life was carefree, until two soldiers interrupted her, intent on burglary. Spying the valuables rings on the fingers, they tried and failed to removed them, whereupon one of the soldiers cut off her hand, leaving her to die from blood loss. It is said that the red stain from her bloodied stump was still visible when the Palace was demolished, and although she is no longer seen, the "swirl of silk garments" have been heard in the Town Hall building which now stands on the site of the Palace.
