The oldest house in Hackney, reputed to be haunted.
Location: Sutton House, Hackney, London, E9 6JQ
Description: Originally known as 'Bryck Place', Sutton House was built in 1535 by Sir Ralph Sadleir and is the oldest residential building in Hackney. It is a rare example of a red brick building from the Tudor period.
The phantom woman or women who haunt this 500 year old Tudor house periodically are not alone - the sound of a wailing hound has also been heard, and disembodied voices emanate from empty rooms.
