Haunted Shrewsbury DAY SIX – Draper’s Hall

Well, after all of yesterday’s “visitors” you may be pleased to know that we only have one today but she visits a building certainly worth having a brevit at.

The Draper’s Hall, built in 1576, retains many original fixtures and furniture frum the 17th century and was extensively restored in 1993.

An ethereal female figure has been sin in the main dining hall standing near to the windows. Have you ever sin’er?

Mebbe she was connected to the puritan John Tomkyns who used to live here or perhaps she is connected to the Shrewsbury Draper, Thomas Browne who foiled the Ridolfi plot to assassinate Queen Elizabeth l and replace her with Mary Queen of Scots. We can but only guess but if she happens to make an appearance when you next visit please ask her a few questions for us.

Pop back in tomorrow if you can for a horrible haunting, oh! and dunna have nightmares.
