Baddesley is a moated manor house, established during the 13th century by the Clinton family when large areas of the Forest of Arden were cleared and eventually converted to farmland. The site is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and the Hall is a Grade I listed building. It is owned and cared for by the National Trust.
It is reputedly haunted by the sounds of phantom footsteps, which have been attributed to the Catholic priests that once used the three priest-holes that were secreted at Baddesley Clinton. The apparition of a man wearing "a scarlet jacket, with a white belt across his chest" was been sighted on one occasion during the late 19th century.
