Vis­i­tors to Tokai Manor House talk of a phan­tom horse­man in the house and gar­den. This strange vi­sion harks back to New Year’s Eve in the early 1900s when a young aris­to­crat was chal­lenged by his fa­ther to ride his horse up the stairs and into the din­ing room. Drunk­enly he de­cided to take up the chal­lenge. How­ever, his horse was sud­denly fright­ened by loud noises, so it gal­loped out of the house, tripped and tum­bled down the steps. The young man broke his neck and they both died. Glimpses of the event still play out to­day.
