Rossington Hall was built on the site of an earlier property and ready for occupation in 1883. The original property was known as Shooters Hill. Richards James Streatfield lived at the hall with his wife and his only daughter, Annette until his death in 1931, following his wife who died in 1903. Annette inherited Rossington Hall and became ‘tenant for life’, but she passed away in 1937.
Unoccupied in a number of years, the hall had fallen disrepair. However, in May 2011, Rossington Hall and its estate were bought and in the summer of 2012, Rossington Hall has established itself as a luxury wedding, conference and dining venue.
According to Coxe, the Hall is haunted by the apparition of a "previous owner" wearing a frock coat and top hat seen in the stables. According to the Halls website, Annette still has presence in the hall, and resides in the attic. There is allegedly a photograph of the ‘Ghost of Rossington Hall’, but we have yet to see a copy.
