  • Although the building dates from 1890, it is on the site of an ancient priory and near a gallows. The combination of a religious house and a site where many were hanged after short trials may well have led to the ghosts who have gathered here over the years. It was through one of the most persistent ghosts here that the others were discovered. When the building was a manor house in the 18th century, a servant girl called Charlotte had an abortion but suffered serious complications and died. Her screams and frequent appearances led to one manager calling in a clairvoyant in the 1980s. This investigator concluded that Charlotte was not the only ghost but the others had remained hidden.
