Belton House

Belton House (pictured above) is a Grade I listed country house. For three hundred years, Belton House was the seat of the Brownlow and Cust family, who had first acquired land in the area in the late 16th century. Between 1685 and 1688 Sir John Brownlow and his wife had the present mansion built. It is now in the care of the National Trust.


The house is reputedly haunted by a number of apparitions. These include a Lady in Black; the "Bright Lady" (a spectre surrounded in a glowing ball of light); a man dressed in black hat and cape; a male dressed in grey; and that of a former female housekeeper.
