Hoghton Tower

Heavy footsteps in an "inaccessible attic" and a dinnerplate moving of its own accord have been seen here. A "Green Lady" (dubbed Lady Anne) in a 16th century costume is seen in the Minstrel's Gallery and according to some, seems to be "chuckling" to herself. Another spectre is said to be Captain Starkie. During the Civil War, he and his Roundheads seized the building from his foes but he and 60 other men were killed when a cache of gunpowder exploded. There are also reputed to be ghosts of black dog, a monk and a little girl.

Update 22/8/20: staff member Elena informs me, "Various volunteers and visitors have reported feeling or seeing presences, yes."
