  • 0 Stars.

Preston Manor is a historic house located on the outskirts of Brighton and Hove.

Ellen and Charles Thomas-Stanford in 1932 bequeathed the house, grounds and contents to the town council.

Preston Manor as it is presented today reflects the Edwardian and early 20th century period when social etiquette, class hierarchies and gender roles were strictly observed, especially by the upper classes and in public life. When Ellen and Charles Thomas-Stanford made Preston Manor their main residence in 1905, they modernised the house to fit their lifestyle and social aspirations.

Preston Manor has a long history of ghostly phenomena and supernatural experiences. The Stanford family were particularly troubled by sightings of the lady in white, while a lady in grey apparently ascended and descended the main staircase disappearing into nowhere.
