RUFFORD OLD HALL: Built of Wood in the 16th Century

Rufford: The Great Hall

Rufford Old Hall is a National Trust Property in Rufford, Lancashire.

Built in 1530 for Sir Robert Hesketh, only the Great Hall (pictured here) survives from the original structure.

Like many places in this part of Lancashire, Rufford Hall has its fair share of ghosts. It is reputedly haunted by a grey lady, by Queen Elizabeth 1 and by a man in Elizabethan clothing.  I don’t expect they’ve all been seen at the same time, though that would be quite a sight!

I must go and investigate Rufford Hall again as its only a half-hour’s drive away.
