This beautiful manor house is situated in Dorset and for many
years was the home of the Trenchard family.
It is reputedly haunted by the wife of Sir
Thomas Trenchard, who was a famous seventeenth century judge. Sir Thomas
actually saw the ghost of his wife while she was still alive, with blood
pouring from a wound in her throat. A few hours later, his wife killed herself
by cutting her throat.
The ghost of a priest also haunts the House and
is believed to be that of an Irish Catholic priest called Cornelius. He was
hanged, drawn and quartered at nearby Dorchester and now reputedly haunts the
staircase in the gatehouse at Wolfeton Hall. His footsteps can be heard on the
stairs leading to the room where he used to stay.
The third ghost at Wolfeton is thought to be
the ghost of Sir Thomas himself. He can be seen driving a phantom coach and
four horses up the main staircase of the House!
