Sawston Hall has been the home of the Huddleston family
for over 400 years. The family has entertained many important historical
figures there, including Mary Tudor, or Mary I of England, whose ghost still
haunts the building.
Mary Tudor was known as Bloody Mary due to the number of
religious persecutions she was involved in. She helped to build the house that
once stood on the site of the present hall. Her restless spirit now walks the
house and the grounds of Sawston.
A 'Lady in Gray' haunts the Tapestry Room of the hall,
although her identity is unknown. Strange knocks and eerie children's laughter
have also been reported.
