About the event
HISTORY OF SMITHILLS HALL Set in land on the edge of the West Pennine Moors, Smithills Hall is one of the oldest and best preserved manor houses in the North West of England. Smithills Hall has a long and fascinating history. The oldest part of the current building, the medieval Great Hall, dates to the mid 1300’s, but the site of the Hall is believed to have been occupied since around 800AD. The Bower and Solar date to the 1400’s, and the Hall also has both Tudor and Victorian wings.
GHOSTS OF SMITHILLS HALL Smithills Hall is famously haunted by the martyr George Marsh, who was interrogated at the Hall in 1554 before being tried for heresy and burnt at the stake at Chester. The haunting was first described by a visitor to the Hall in the 18th century. Marsh famously stamped on a stone as he left the Hall, leaving his footprint behind as testament to his Protestant faith, and the footprint is reputed to bleed on the anniversary of Marsh’s death.
