An unusual, homely photo of the hall, almost as if it is still occupied as a family home, with the Crawfords inside at breakfast, looking out onto their garden.

The ghosts of Haigh Hall taking breakfast in the Morning Room with Lady Mabel in residence - all bumping into one another!
"Do partake of some tea dear before shooting the wood pigeons....Cook intends baking pigeon pie for supper!"
Hubby - "Splendid my dear ... A drop or two of our finest brandy to send us on our way."
Can just see it Irene!


Comment by DTease on 2nd May 2018 at 09:56
He would have been more likely to have said something like "Excellent breakfast dear, well I'm off to throw a few more children down my Pit Shafts. Got to keep the lazy little beggars on their toes dontchaknow. I'll be back for supper, tell cook to stay up late to keep it warm for me, er the Pigeon Pie that is"

Beautiful scene .D Tease you have lost your way you should have been a comedian very witty keep on with the good work.


Comment by Mick on 2nd May 2018 at 11:17
I spoke to a Polish lad Photo-a-Day (Monday, 19th March, 2018)who was chopping firewood a few weeks ago who was living in Haigh hall
When I asked him about ghosts in the Haigh hall he said he and non of his mates had ever seen one


Comment by Veronica on 2nd May 2018 at 12:44
As Lady Mabel finished slurping her tea from the dainty china cup and licking her silver spoon; She exclaimed " My Lord - Forsooth I foresee in the tea leaves a ghastly pink slime covering these goodly walls..."
Lord and Master cocking his gun - " Perhaps Cook has made a surfeit of 'Blanc - Mange again dearest"!

You daft lot, you do make me laugh, I just have to read out your comments to my other half, he laughs too...keep up the good work !


Comment by Ken R on 2nd May 2018 at 17:09
Good photo Ron. What have ghosts got to do with Ron's photo. Perhaps we should start a would-be poets corner for all these semi-delinquents to use LOL.


Comment by Veronica on 4th May 2018 at 08:43
Ken didn't you know the hall was supposed to be haunted?
Thankyou anyway you just have to have a chuckle now and again - but sometimes we get carried away! It might be a white van next time that comes for us! ( especially Dtease and Oozy!)
