Gresley Old Hall is Grade II listed. It was built in 1556 using stones from Gresley Priory which stood on the site previously.
Its purpose was to be a second family home. After this, earthenware and china were both produced on site for a time. The hall was also used as a farmhouse and tenanted to many families.
There is a story that a maid burnt to death in the home whilst looking after the children of the family. According to the story, the room was boarded up after her death and never opened again. There are also tales that a man was stabbed to death on the first floor landing. The blood stains are said to be visible today and cannot be removed, despite numerous attempts.
The two known spirits said to haunt the hall are that of a maid and a little girl.
Disembodied footsteps and whispers are heard.
People report feelings of their skin burning and their hair being pulled. Reappearing blood stains and full bodied apparitions definitely gives Gresley Old Hall the creepy edge.
