Tatton old Hall. Level of Activity 2/5
Tatton old hall is situated in Tatton Park near the village of Tatton (which has since disappeared) in Cheshire. The site now is an ‘ancient monument’ and an archaeological importance in the North West of England.
It was considered in the past to be the ‘Heart of the Estate’ because of how grand it is and the age of the building.
Tatton Old Hall was built between the 15th and 16th century. It has a great hall which is only lit by candlelight and a Tudor fireplace.
Unfortunately there is no known record of who build the Old Hall but most experts think it was built by the Stanley Family, who were very powerful in that era. Of course, the hall has been altered over the years and by the year 1600 the hall became part of a large working estate and the owners converted the hall into three estate cottages until the Egerton Family gave the property to the National Trust in 1958.
The most activity we found while on an investigation has happened in the Great Hall. It is haunted by a spirit of a ‘mean’ drunken man known by the name of Tom. You can feel the spirit of Tom walking up and down the balcony of the Old Hall staring at everyone. It is also said that the women in the building are affected worse by Tom’s mischievous ways.
Another common visitor to the Old Hall of Tatton Park is a woman walking through with a spirit of a child following her. Cries and sobbing of a woman has been heard from the spinning room in the building.
The spirits of animals, especially Dee1r and Dogs have been sensed by mediums. There is also a story of two hunters following a Deer to the estate and it ran into the Old Hall. When the hunters investigated there was not a Deer in sight.
Dare you in your small teams call out to the drunken Tom and ask him for a sign?
