Brede Place

Brede Place is a 14th century stone manor house built by one of Edward III’s knights. It is NOT OPEN to the public.


Legend states that this was once the home of an orge named Sir Goddard who would dine on the flesh of babies. The house is said to be haunted by a number of ghosts. These include a sixteenth century maid named Martha; a benign priest called Father John; a headless man; and a lady wearing a ruff.
