The timber framed Main Hall part of the Old House dates back to the 13th century!
The locals say that this house is haunted, very haunted…
In fact, it’s rumoured that there may be up to six ghosts in Rochford’s Old House.
A paranormal investigation which was covered by the local rag claimed that the spirits in the Old House are a Puritan woman, an Edwardian child, a maid, a medieval man and a little Victorian girl!
The Chief Executive office seems to have a residential ghost all of its own…
The spirit is said to be that of an elderly man who likes to sit in one of the chairs.
He’s been witnessed in the office by terrified cleaning staff and the Chief Executive himself!
