Ghost Hunt Rufford Abbey

19 September @ 8:00 pm - 20 September @ 1:00 am

Rufford Abbey

Ghost Hunt Rufford Abbey
Rufford Abbey is a country estate in Rufford, Nottinghamshire, some 2 miles south of Ollerton.
Originally a Cistercian abbey it was converted to a country house in the 16th century after the Dissolution of the Monasteries.

Still known locally as Rufford Abbey, the building you see today is mainly the picturesque remains of a country house. However, it started its long history as part of a Cistercian monastery, many hundreds of years ago. Because of this, Rufford is a marvellous and complex jigsaw containing every kind of architectural style from the 12th o the 20th century

Part to the house was demolished in the 20th century, but the remains, standing in 150 acres of park and woodland, are open to the public.

Rufford Abbey

The Abbey was founded in 1145 by monks. although it took over one hundreds of years to complete, it was not a large monastery.

The abbey was closed in 1536 by order of Henry VIII and the estate was given to the Talbot family, Earl of Shrewsbury who used it as a part-time hunting lodge until around 1610. The Abbey was later acquired by the Savile family in 1626, it remained in their ownership until the mid-20th century.

In 1938, the Rufford estate was sold, this was quickly followed by military use during World War Two. The house continued to decay and in 1956 a controlled demolition had to be carried out leaving the building much as you see it today.
