Reported Ghosts

There have been several sightings of a lady, believed to be that of Charlotte Sparrow who once owned Bishton Hall. People have reported doors opening and closing by unseen hands, dark mists and shadows in the cellars, sounds of children’s cries coming from within bedrooms. There is a foreboding atmosphere throughout the hall and an uneasy sense of being watched and followed.

Venue History

Bishton Hall dates back to the mid-18th century, circa 1750, although parts of it are older. There has long been a structure on the site and Bishton was mentioned in the Domesday book of 1086.

Bishton Hall is a Grade II* listed building. There are 17 bedrooms, three principal front rooms, library, servants’ quarters, orangery, parterre filled with roses and Temple Garden featuring one of the best Doric screens in the country, combine to create quintessential old English grandeur.

A handful of important families have lived at the hall through the centuries. Among them are three former High Sheriffs of Staffordshire – John Sneyd, Cecil Stafford Northcote and John Sparrow. The latter was a lawyer and magistrate who purchased Bishton around 1776.

In 1954 the Stafford-Northcote’s opened St Bede’s school at Bishton Hall. It remained a school until 2018.

One of the favourite owners of Bishton Hall was Charlotte Sparrow, daughter of John Sparrow and she lived at the hall her entire life, until she died at the age of 90 in 1876. Shortly after her fathers death in 1820 Charlotte transformed Bishton Hall by adding the East and West wings.
