The ghost here is said to be "Gertie", a kitchen maid who killed herself after an affair with the owner; she is said to be friendly and leave the aroma of freshly baked pies. It is not known how much of this description is accurate, but certainly a "Grey Lady" has been seen, responsible for strange sounds include that of a heavy file of papers dropped onto the boardroom table, as well as ringing a (now non existent) door bell.

Update 11/8/20: Ian Morris, the Chief Officer and Town Clerk for Peterlee Town Council tells me, "I've been here 4 years and have not personally encountered any phenomenon despite being in the building alone at various times. But, there are a few longer-serving staff who claim to have experienced strange things. Keys going missing (people talk about the Grey Lady having an appetite for keys!) and feelings of a presence in rooms etc. I don't think anyone has reported any specific incidences in the 4 years that I've been here."
