Chat It's Fate



Bishton Hall, Stoke-on-trent THE HAUNTING:

This stunning Grade Ii-listed building dates back to 1750 – and some parts of the building are so old that they’re even mentioned in the Domesday book. That’s a lot of history for one location!

The hall was last used as a school, St. Bede’s – and rather disturbing­ly, some of the ‘play areas’ were down in the dungeons!

The building is well-known for its paranormal phenomena; in particular, there’ve been regular sightings of a lady in white, believed to be Charlotte Sparrow, a beautiful philanthro­pist who spent her whole life in Bishton Hall in the 18th century, dying there aged 90 in 1876.

With 17 bedrooms, servants’ quarters and creepy undergroun­d tunnels, there’s certainly plenty here for our resident ghost hunter and comedian Barry Dodds to explore...
