The Spirits of Levens Hall, South Cumbria



Levens Hall, in South Cumbria, is a Tudor style sixteenth century residence, built on the site of a twelfth century Pele Tower. The house is open to the public from April to October. A Lakeland guide once described the park as 'the sweetest spot that fancy can imagine'. The picturesque manor house has become world famous because of its topiary garden, with the yew trees that have been cut to amazing shapes for the past three centuries. And of course, there are ghosts too...including a gypsy woman, a phantom black dog, a mysterious pink lady, a traffic ghost and the spirit of a harpsichord player.
