Constructed by Sir Henry Griffith in 1601, Burton Agnes Hall is an excellent example of an Elizabethan Manor built on the site of an earlier Norman house. Many of the original fittings remain in place and the building style, including quirks of construction, is still evident. There are more than 3,000 species of plants in the garden as well as many fanciful statues and integrated games such as a large scale chess set made from black and white paving. There is a legend that hidden within one of the walls is the skull of one of Sir Henry’s daughters – Anne Griffith. The story goes that she was murdered by a local villain and her moaning and wailing ghost wouldn’t rest until her skull was kept in the house. After a servant tried to through it away and the paranormal screaming returned the family hid it in one of the walls. She is still said to “peacefully” haunt various rooms on the anniversary of her death.
