Extwistle Hall
Extwistle Hall
The main body of Extwistle Hall dates from 1580, the rear wing from 1637 and was the home of the Parker family. Local legend tells the story of Captain Robert Parker who, after a meeting with the Jacobites in the early 18th Century witnessed a goblin funeral passing near to Extwistle Hall. He hid in some bushes but was horrified to see the goblin procession bearing a coffin inscribed with his own name. He took this as a warning against siding with the Jacobites and withdrew his support, refusing to take any part in the failed uprising of 1715. Extwistle hall is currently abandoned.
