Paranormal History

The spirit of a young teenage girl has been picked up in the Parlour room, during some glass work Will she come through to us? A couple staying in the house in 1979 were given a guest room in the 17th Century west wing of the house. During the night, the woman awoke and felt herself to be in the room, but sensed she was present in a different era. The doorway of the room appeared to be in a different location.


She was in the presence of a large, powerful man, who seemed distracted, as though he had a great decision to make, and he gripped her arm as he muttered to himself. The vision faded and the woman found herself back in real time. The doorway had returned to its original position, but the marks made by the man as he held onto her arm were still visible.


When she told her husband, he pointed out that part of the bedroom wall had been altered, and that there was evidence that, in the past, there had been a doorway in the place where she had seen it. That room is now known as the Haunted Bedroom, where you can still see the false door. Staff opening the House in the mornings often make their way quickly through this room, as it can unnerve even those who believe none of the stories that they have been told.


Oliver Cromwell was well known as a practical joker in his lifetime, and in 1998, a guide working for the Tourist Information Centre may have become the butt of one of his jokes. The guide was sitting in a room in Cromwell’s old house when he felt a draught around his feet. He looked down to see the laces of his shoe undone. Each time he re-did them, the same thing would happen. Was this Cromwell up to his old tricks?
