Some people are "mad" about this place. It was called "Ghost corridor", because it was said that some people had seen a ghosty figure, a young lady dressed in grey, called "Grey Lady" disappeared through the wall..When the building was renovated in 50's, a door frame was discovered underneath the plaster where the "Grey Lady" disappeared. She hasn't been seen since after the renovation. Another saying was that The tower of the Old Hall was haunted by her. It was said that she was the daughter of the Lord of the Manor who fell in love with a poor soldier(or a farm worker). Her father discovered and locked her away in the tower where she died from a broken heart, but her spirit was (is) still wondering around the tower area... I'll upload the tower tomorrow for you to have a look. Thanks for looking.If you see the ghost, do tell me;-).
BTW I'll put Kitchen ceiling and another room image on workshop for you to have a look as well.

No sign of any ghosts here but it looks the sort of place they might haunt:-) You have managed the light very well retaining good detail in te areas in shade. Excellent detail to be observed in the wood panelling and floors.

What a useless ghost to be stopped by a simple renovation:-). It's a fascinating story you tell us however. The view of the corridor isn't that fascinating but it's a very good photo with excellently handled light and well captured texture of the wooden details. The workshops are also very good, actually more fascinating because of the detailed descriptions of ancient building techniques.
