One of the city’s most unique buildings, Speke Hall, is a 16th-century building and was home to Edward Norris and his family. 

They were a devoutly Catholic family. That didn’t stop Mr Norris from having problems with gambling and alcohol, which started to put him in debt. His wife threw their son from the Tapestry Room’s window into the lake below, where he drowned, and then eventually, she did the same thing. This is why, as well as the sheer size of the building, many believe this manor is haunted. Numerous sightings and visitors have stated they felt uneasy in certain parts of the building.
