The ghost is said to haunt the hall
The ghost of Anne Boleyn
One of the county's most magnificent buildings is said to be haunted by the ghost of Anne Boleyn, who was executed in 1536. An apparition is said to appear at Blickling Hall on the anniversary of her death.
Blickling Hall, near Aylsham in north Norfolk, is said to be haunted by the ghost of Anne Boleyn.
The apparition is said to appear there every year on the anniversary of her execution.
Anne, who was the second wife of King Henry VIII, was beheaded on 19 May 1536 just days before her husband married Jane Seymour.
Her ghost is said to draw up to the door of the stately home in a carriage pulled by headless horses and driven by a headless coachman.
The house was built on the site of a former manor which was once home to Anne Boleyn, who was the mother of Queen Elizabeth I. Some people believe it was her birthplace, although there is no evidence to support this.
Anne's father, Sir Thomas Boleyn, is also said to haunt Blickling Hall, a National Trust property.
