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.
