Sinai House Staffordshire

The house is made up of two buildings and is grade II listed. It is made up of Jacobean, medieval and 1700’s style. Half of the house now lies derelict but is under the process of being renovated. The house has had various uses. There is some circumstantial evidence it was once used as a Roman stronghold, in medieval times it was a court and trails were there, it was then given to the local abbey and the monks used it as a rest home. After the dissolution of the monasteries Henry VIII gave it to the Paget family and in 1605 the two separate buildings were joined to make it look grander. The Paget family owned the house until the early 1900s when they sold it and it was converted to flats, the building was then condemned and it was used for pigs and hens. It is now a privately owned home.

The house is very well known and is an important historical site, and it has its fair share of ghosts. Many figures are said to have been seen, things are moved around and noises heard. Rumour has that a monk got a girl pregnant so he murdered her; her ghost is seen walking across the bridge over the moat.
