Rufford Old Hall Great Hall

By kip55
In her 1974 book, Lancashire Legends, Kathleen Eyre claims that although "it may be no more than a fond hope" there is evidence that a "William Shakeshaft" (a common version of Shakespeare's name) was a youthful member of the "Hesketh Company of Players" who visited in about 1585. The date coincides with Shakespeare's absence from Stratford-on-Avon. The hall is reputedly haunted by a grey lady and a man in Elizabethan clothing. The figure of a man floating above the canal at the rear of the building has also been reported.
