Town Hall, Henley on Thames

It has been suggested that the ghost of Mary Blandy was witnessed by a number of people at a re-enactment of her trial at the Henley Town Hall sometime prior to 1969. Her actual trial took place on 3 March 1752 at the Oxford Assizes held in the hall of the Divinity School. The court was presided over by The Honourable Heneage Legge (Died 29 August 1759) and Sir Sidney Stafford Smythe (Born 1705 – Died 1778). Blandy was found to be guilty and was hanged on 6 April 1752 for poisoning her father.

It would be very interesting to hear about any further details concerning this experience.
