Marbury Hall near Northwich Cheshire. There have been a number of manor buildings on the site going back to the 13th century. However, it's the events that occurred from the latter part of the 17th century that has given Marbury it's folklore. The most common story and of course sightings is that of the ghost female known as the 'Marbury Lady' but there are other ghost stories as well including a race horse named 'Marbury Dunne' and a horse and carriage when following an accident a coachman was indeed killed. Sightings and sounds have been heard at the location for many years and even the Sun newspaper in the early 1980's ran a story concerning a local motorist driving through the dip in the road was confronted with a while lady in his headlamps. Sadly the last house was pulled down in the 1968 but the site of the original building is now a community park and the sighting do continue. This would make a great location for a night outside investigation.

However, activity here might have stopped after one psychic has claimed to have crossed Sarah into the afterlife to be reunited with her lover, but a documentary by Richard Felix titled 'Cheshire Ghosts' where members of staff were interviewed suggests otherwise and they say paranormal activity still takes place with many staff refusing to go into the top rooms on their own..
