A little girl is said to haunt the upstairs rooms; it is said that she was killed when she became entrapped in the machinery when the site was used as a fulling mill.
Update 22/11/21: Clare Lindsay, the General Manager informs me, "Yes, we are allegedly haunted and I believe there are several stories out there. The one I was made aware of when I first came to work here in 1981 was of a young Mill girl who drowned in the Mill Pond. I certainly felt a presence on more than one occasion, when working in the theatre late into the night but I am not aware of any reports in recent years. We did have a paranormal investigation group come in about ten years ago and spend a night in the theatre with specialised recording equipment, who found some interesting sounds but nothing conclusive.
