Lew Trenchard manor is supposed to be haunted but there haven’t been any sightings. Meant to be a secret passage. Church chandelier has been stolen twice, church screen from 1200 is a copy. Sabine Baring-Gould’s books at Killerton, ‘he done pretty well’, used to ride around in a dogcart. Built the ballroom so as to have dances in order to marry off his daughters. When they travelled to dances the daughters would get the driver drunk so that they could stay longer.
