Reported Ghosts

The most paranormally active areas are the castle room and the panelled room. Allow your mind to picture these rooms as they once were. The hustle of everyday life being ingrained in its walls.

Sir Nicholas Strelley is known to be the dark figure that roams the hall and grounds. He is believed to be attracted to the young ladies who visit the hall. He is also known to have terrified staff after his death until the present day. Will you attract the presence of this particular spirit! The servants from Sir Nicholas’s era are also said to haunt the hall. Were they so attached to their master that they are still dedicated to him!

The most eerie part of this building has got to be the dark, damp cellars beneath the hall. These cellars have an imposing and oppressive feeling to them and lead to the dungeon. As you walk through these cellars, try to imagine how it must have felt to have been escorted through here knowing where it leads. What crimes must they have committed to be kept in such a foreboding location! Which spirit will connect to you and try to tell their story?

Around the 20th Century most of the prisoners kept here were poachers. Yet it would not only be the guilty ones, who knew it was wrong, to have been dragged through here but also the innocent people who were simply too poor and wanting something to eat.

Venue History

The hall was originally built as a castle in 1200AD: however, according to records, no permission was ever sought to crenellate which means it could only ever be classed as a fortified manor. The hall has been substantially modified in the 18th and 19th century. However, there are many original features including the castle room; which was part of the ancient tower, the panelled room; which is from the Georgian era and the dungeon is also an original feature and can be discovered along the vast cellars beneath the hall.

The hall and estate ran through the Strelley family until 1678 when Sir Nicholas Strelley lost the entire estate to Ralph Edge through gambling, believed to be over a game of cards. The Edge family passed the hall through the male line of the family whether by birth or marriage until Miss Emily Edge who died unmarried in 1978.
