Speke Hall, a Tudor mansion built in the 16th Century, is known for its many ghosts. The deeply religious and catholic Norris family lived here until Edward, the patriarch, drove them to bankruptcy as a result of his alcoholism. In despair, his wife Mary killed her son before committing suicide. To this day, she glides through the mansion.

Reported sightings include William Huskisson MP, laid to rest in after being killed by the Rocket locomotive.
