There are also reports of phantom children seen and heard around the building. One, a ghost called Sarah, a former serving girl, is the most active phantom. She frequently appears to throw items of clothing and kitchen equipment in a rough and frightening manner. There is additionally, the phantom of a man wearing a black suit from the 1940s, who makes the odd and frightening appearance. The village is not free from ghosts, either.
