Rufford: The Great Hall
Rufford Old Hall is a National Trust Property in Rufford, Lancashire.
Built in 1530 for Sir Robert Hesketh, only the Great Hall (pictured here) survives from the original structure.
Like many places in this part of Lancashire, Rufford Hall has its fair share of ghosts. It is reputedly haunted by a grey lady, by Queen Elizabeth 1 and by a man in Elizabethan clothing. I don’t expect they’ve all been seen at the same time, though that would be quite a sight!
I must go and investigate Rufford Hall again as its only a half-hour’s drive away.

Lovely place and picture Helen. I’m sure Yvette Fielding and her ‘Most Haunted’ ghost hunting team have been there looking for these spectres … needless to say, they didn’t show up then either 🙂

They’ll only be seen when they want to be.

Ghosts always add intrigue and mystery to a photo. 😀

I’m hoping I’ll get them in the frame next time I visit,

A ghost story always gives a place pizzazz!

sure does. There are so many places in this neck of the woods with resident ghosts.

It would be nice if they would come out for you and pose for a photo session! 🙂 Otherwise all dressed up and no where to go!
