Haunted: Wrest Park, Silsoe, Bedfordshire

The Haunting of Wrest Park

The Grade I listed country house of Wrest Park is situated to the east of the village on the other side of the A6.

The present house dates back to the 1830s.

The house has a stunning ninety two acre 18th century garden which was created by the garden designers George London and Henry Wise and later modified by landscape architect Capability Brown.

There’s a story that Wrest Park’s bailiff and his daughter would often hear phantom footsteps walking around the gardens both in the day and during the night!

Today Wrest Park is run by English Heritage and is opened to the public if you fancy having a look around.
