Recent security footage captured a figure in the bushes; the identity of it is said to either be Hugh William Osbert Molyneux, the 7th Earl of Sefton or William Philip Molyneux, 2nd Earl of Sefton (both are said to haunt here). Inside the building, a child is seen in the dining room and by the fireplace, the billiard room is said to have a mysterious entity occupying it, the 6th Earl of Sefton is thought to be in the tearoom, and a hooded man with a ghastly face wanders the corridors.

  1. About 24 years ago, myself, my cousin, an adult and her toddler where walking in the park by the two adjoining fields, along side it is a footpath, greenery and a river that runs parallel with it. We witnessed on a warm calm summers evening, what looked like a carrier bag floating low on the fields, this then stretched up into the shape of a lady in a long white dress, known locally as “the white lady” when the full figure shape was established, this then floated across the ploughed field horizontally as if it were gliding and head towards the river alt and disappeared into the trees which are in feint of the river alt and disappeared. That was the first and only time I had ever seen her, even though I had knowledge of her existence. I was so freaked out that not just me, but four of us had all witnessed the same thing, I ran out of the park all the way home, it freaked me out. I have heard that people have seen a young boy in old clothes holding a lantern, in front of the house by the stairs that are in the middle. I have also heard that a ghost horses and carriage has been seen and heard too. The white lady however, I am told, threw herself off the building due to her husband’s infidelity.
