The History -
The Cruck Barn at Tatton Old Hall started life at the beginning of the 17th century as a Cheshire farm near Frodsham. The barn is a fine example of a style once common in the Midlands and North, and is constructed from a series of paired timbers called crucks, each of which forms a shape like the letter A. In some parts of the country cruck trusses from the 14th century can still be found but those within Cheshire tend to date from the 15th and 16th centuries. The timbers are generally rougher and less finished than the higher standard of craftsmanship found in the earlier period but the Old Hall’s cruck barn still retains a rustic symmetry and grace.
Dilapidated and crumbling and expensive to restore, the barn at Frodsham was roofed with rusting corrugated iron. Several of its crucks had slipped off their plinths making total collapse imminent. In 1976 the plight of the barn was brought to the attention of Cheshire County Council’s Planning Department, who asked the farm owner if it could be taken down, brought to Tatton and restored. Since old maps showed that a barn had once existed at the Old Hall, the opportunity was taken to accept this generous offer of a valuable example of Cheshire’s vernacular architecture.
Undeterred by its condition, a team of one joiner and a small number of unskilled young people working under a job creation scheme carefully dismantled the barn. Much of the timber recovered was re-
The barn’s four sets of crucks are equally spaced along its 70 feet length and together with its timber-
The Spirits -
The spirits said to b around the Hall go from some nasty male spirit that likes to prod and poke the ladies to small children that like to play. The main hall is like walking through time with the medieval great hall, the 18th centaury bedrooms to the 1940’s kitchen and 1960’s lounge. It is said that an old drunk games keeper is present in the kitchen and parlour area, he has a real dislike to females. Three children run around the rooms upstairs with a chubby happy spirit in the master bedroom.
The Great hall has many visiting spirits. Then there is the Barn!!!!!
It is said that one of the beams in the barn was used to hang witches in the 17th centaury, it is said that one witch haunts the bean and the barn. There is also reported to be a number of other spirits that reside in the barn. The Spirits are not just in the Hall and Barn, they are all around the grounds of the old hall. Well worth a visit to see what you can find.
The Tatton Old Hall proved to be one of the most active but quite place we have visited. There is no doubt that there are multiple spirits on the grounds. On our walk round the gardens we had massive K2 spikes that would go as quickly as they came. We did multiple checks in the areas we got the spikes with no results.
In the bedrooms up stairs we had interaction from a small boy spirit who when asked pulled the same finger on the same hand of 6 out of 20 guests. K2 spikes at the same time gave more evidence that something was with us. We also had knocks and cold breezes in the rest of the Hall. The Barn however was very quite on the walk round with nothing happening. The investigation went on with some K2 spikes in the red in answer to questions in Kitchen area from what we believe was a maid. The night rally hit off when we got into the barn, we had multiple orbs and light anomalies being seen with the naked eye and court on camera. We used the SP-
