New Years Eve Murder
BIn the 1630's William Davenport owned this magnificent tutor style hall. On New Years Eve a stranger came to the hall looking for shelter from a storm. The gracious Mr. Davenport let the red caped stranger in. The next morning however, Mr. William Davenport was found dead on the great room floor and it was surmised the now-missing red caped stranger was the culprit.
They say if you visit Bramall Hall on New Years Eve you are likely to encounter this visitor who rides the courtyeard on his horse.
The Plaster Room in the house is said to be haunted by a woman as well as Neville's Room on the first floor as well as the Withdrawing room. Even dogs are said to panic and refuse to go into the Plaster Room. This beautiful home is certainly worth a visit, if not for the ghosts, then certainly for the 64 acre grounds and architecture.
