Hanbury Hall is a large stately home and a Grade I listed building. It was built in the early 18th century by the wealthy chancery lawyer Thomas Vernon. Hanbury Hall is thought to stand on the site of the previous mansion, Spernall Hall. The house is now under the care of the National Trust and is open to the public.
It is reputedly haunted by a Lady in Black, whom some have suggested is Emma Vernon (1754-1818), who grew up at the house and was a "renowned society beauty". Her apparition has been sighted in the grounds.
