Carbrook Hall is a historic house in Sheffield, England. Located in the Attercliffe district of the city, the original building was owned by the Blunt family from 1176.[1] This was rebuilt in 1462, and was bought by Thomas Bright (Lord of the manor of Ecclesall) in the late 16th century.[2] His descendant, John Bright, was an active Parliamentarian during the English Civil War, and the building was used as a Roundhead meeting place during the siege of Sheffield Castle.[1] Most of the building was demolished in the 19th century, what survives is a Grade II listed stone wing that was added c. 1620.[3] It is now used as a public house that claims to be "Sheffield's most haunted public house".[2]
