Buriton Manor

Buriton Manor

A ‘kindly ghost’, according to the author Coxe in 'Haunted Britain', supposedly haunts the manor (pictured above). However, despite this it apparently affected the value of the property when it went up for sale in 1957! Whereas, Coxe provides no clue as to the identity or description of the apparition, Brooks states that it was a nanny to the family.


There is a legend that an underground passage runs from the manor to the church. Brooks states that phantom monks haunt the grounds of the manor and the village also.
