This is Rufford old hall in Lancashire, Shakespeare played there with his travelling actors. I t was built around 1460. The Hall is reputedly haunted by three ghosts; a “Gray Lady”, a man dressed in Elizabethan clothes and Queen Elizabeth I. The “Gray Lady” has been seen many times, usually by the main entrance or on the drive leading up to the house. She is thought to be the ghost of Elizabeth Hesketh, a young woman who became seriously ill while her husband was at war overseas. She vowed that she would not die before saying goodbye to him, but he never returned so she never got the chance.
The ghost of the man in Elizabethan costume has sometimes been seen near the huge fireplace in the Great Hall. This is the spot where a secret chamber was later discovered – which it is thought was used to hide catholic priests from sight.
Queen Elizabeth I has been seen in the dining room, where she vanishes if anyone tries to approach her.
uuaaauuuu!!!!! bellissima !
Well done....Nice one...!!!
Flawless. Nice mood
Excellent shot and great process. Perhaps the Queen is upset because no one will pressure wash the walls and chimney and re-roof. Mention to her I work cheap..!! :)
