Little Moreton Hall
The hall is surrounded by a moat and in its grounds can be found a strange mound which may in fact be a Tumuli or Lowe (burial mound). It has been speculated that at one time a secret tunnel connected with the cellar of the house which has now been bricked up, however this story may have arisen from the fact that the house is built on a Ley-line, and perhaps over the years the Ley-line has evolved into a secret tunnel.
The hall was built around 1450 and has been added to over the years, this includes the long gallery which is reputed to be haunted, and along with the extra weight this added to the house and the fact that there are no substantial foundations it has created a crooked appearance to the building.
In 1997 a thirteen year old girl who was visiting the hall reported seeing a face appear in the fireplace, which according to her gave her an evil look.
Another strange occurrence took place between 2000-2002 when a spate of near misses were reported to the police along the A34 between Congleton and Scholar Green on a stretch of road known as Morton Level. The people involved claimed to have swerved to avoid figures that were in the road, the police decided to look into it before a fatality occurred. For many weeks the police would frequently park on the lay by on Morton Level to monitor the situation, the two officers kept watch without witnessing anything, until one night when again they thought their vigil had been fruitless and were just turning their patrol car around to head back to Congleton, when to their complete suprise a horse drawn carriage appeared in the middle of the main road, proceeded for about 100 yards towards Scholar Green, and then turned left onto the driveway leading to Little Morton hall and then promptly disappeared!
