Moat House, Tamworth
Currently the Moat House is a modern family restaurant, but is being renovated back to its original splendour. A Gazebo nearby is a Grade II listed building and a rare family of 18 black swans live around the grounds.
It is purported that walking the third floor corridors is the ghost of a young girl named Emily, or Amelia. It is believed she was locked in the tower by her father and died in a fire that originated from a burning candle. There is evidence of a fire, but no evidence that it was in that location, or that anybody died in it.
