An architectural masterpiece, the Victorian Gothic revival mansion, is home to ghostly sights such as a headless horse and a floating coffin.

Built of Cotswold stone by the freemason William Leigh in 1852, it was never completed and fully lived in. It has remained untouched by time since the mid-1870s when construction workers and craftsmen mysteriously downed tools.

In 1902 a local vicar saw a strange apparition at the gates to the mansion and a few years later a phantom horseman was also seen on the drive.
