Tatton Old Hall

Tatton Old Hall is a country house in Tatton Park. The house is a Grade II listed building and is owned by the National Trust and administered in conjunction with Cheshire East Council. It was built around the start of the 15th century, by either the Stanley family or Sir Richard Brereton. There is still speculation as to who was responsible.

 

The Hall is reputedly haunted by a crying lady that is sometimes seen but more often just the sound of sobbing is heard. A second female phantom has also been reported, and she has been named Elenor by mediums. Other apparitions include a young girl. Some have reported a negative energy with a "hatred" towards women.
