Manor House Hotel
Market St, Ferryhill, County Durham
A 15th century building was once a manor house. It exhibits ghostly manifestations. These include a child killer of many years ago. Authorities hanged, this man for murder. He has haunted it from the time when the building was an orphanage. One child, aged five, was staying at the Manor House with his parents when he was suddenly grabbed by an unseen ghost in his bedroom. This phantom gripped him by the throat and threw him onto the bed. The boy escaped. He ran to his mother, who found the imprint of a large man’s hand on the boy’s neck.
