Stocken Hall

Stocken Hall is a Grade II* listed mansion and dates principally from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. It was used as the HMP Stocken prison farm from the 1950's until the 1980's. It has now been converted into apartments and is NOT open to the public.


According to Coxe, there are three apparitions associated with the Hall. These include a girl who was strangled in the attic area; a White Lady; and the grisly phantom of a hanging man on the branches of an oak tree.


The latter ghost was sighted on 22nd December some years back, but apparently subsequent visits on this date have not provided witnesses with another sighting.
