East Riddleston Hall

There are reputedly several ghosts that haunt this seventeenth century manor house, the most famous being the 'Gray Lady'. This woman is thought to be the wife of a previous Lord of the Manor.

East Riddleston HallShe has been seen walking along the corridors of the house, wandering from room to room as if searching for someone or something.

According to the owners of the house, the lady's husband came home one day to find her in the arms of another man. He quickly locked his wife in a room and walled up her lover. Eventually, both of them starved to death and it is now thought that when the 'Gray Lady' appears she is looking for her lost love. The unfortunate young man is said to appear as a ghostly figure at the window of the bricked-up room where he died.

Another ghost, known as the 'White Lady', has been seen walking around the lake in the grounds of the house. She too once lived at the Hall and supposedly was thrown from her horse whilst hunting. Her body was never found and it is believed that she drowned in the lake where she is now frequently seen.

The fourth ghost is a phantom coachman who was believed to have been dragged into the lake by his horses. He has been seen wandering around the water, presumably looking for his lost coach and horses.

There is a 300 year-old wooden cradle in one of the bedrooms of East Riddleston Hall that is said to rock of its own accord each New Year's Eve. It is rumored that the 'Gray Lady' herself is rocking the cradle.
