The Haunting of Rochford Hall
Rochford Hall is a splendid privately owned red-brick manor house which dates back to 1216.
Although what you see today at Rochford Hall is mainly 16th century architecture.
Back in 1515 Rochford Hall was owned by a very famous family in English history… the Boleyns!
Rochford Hall belonged to Sir Thomas Boleyn, father of Anne Boleyn who married King Henry VIII and became Queen in 1533…
This wasn’t too fortunate for Anne, as Henry had her beheaded in 1536 for adultery, incest and treason!
Legend says that her nursery walls and floor turned red with blood after her execution!
It’s said that twelve days after Christmas a ghostly apparition of a decapitated woman in white can be seen wandering around the grounds of Rochford Hall.
