Meet the Old Hall Team

Mick Ricketts - Old Hall StewardThe Old Hall team, led by steward Mick Ricketts, cares for the historic house and its collection, the grounds (including a small kitchen garden), the Cruck Barn and the rare breed poultry which wander freely in the orchard.  The team are passionate about this very special site, considered by many to be Tatton’s ‘hidden gem’.

A penchant for dressing up does not go amiss amongst the Old Hall staff! The medieval Old Hall hosts a number of special re-enactment events throughout the year.  Visitors will often come across Mick and the team in a number of guises such as a Medieval farmer or Viking warrior.

Believed by some to be haunted, the Old Hall provokes keen interest in paranormal groups and has been ‘investigated’ by TV’s Most Haunted.  A steady nerve (or a healthy dose of scepticism) is
also a must amongst Old Hall staff.
