Fright for sore eyes

Scaplen's Court Museum in Poole’s old town has long been believed to be haunted.

Local storytellers often cite the tale of Agnes Beard, a maid murdered in the late 1500s who still walks the courtyard. Visitors claim they feel a male presence in an area known as the Solar Room, and staff members have heard footsteps when they know no-one else is there.
