There has been an abundance of reports of paranormal activity occurring at the Old Hall for a long time. From not only the sound of footsteps on the old wooden floorboards, but also the capturing of EVP’s and ghostly sightings within the Old Hall grounds.
One of which believed to haunt at Haden Hill Old Hall is the ghost of Annie Eliza Haden. Reports say she never married or had children. She lived her life at Haden and passed as the last in line of the original Haden Family. Other hauntings reported are that of the wooded area towards the lower of the Haden Hall grounds, sometimes referred to as Nursery Wood, this is associated with the sightings of the ghost of Eleanor, a beautiful young woman in her mid-ages lived at nearby Hayseech Mill. The tragic story of Eleanor's love for a monk from Halesowen is reputedly based on fact. The parents of Eleanor and the Abbot of the abbey tried to prevent the lovers from being together but they both escaped, using a secret passage. However they were later caught and following his capture the Monk was walled up alive in the passage.

Haden Hill West Mid 6th June 2020
- History Haden Hill House Museum in Cradley Heath, Rowley Regis is a Victorian gentleman's residence furnished in period style, surrounded by 55 acres of award winning parkland. The House was built in 1878 by George Alfred Haden Haden-Best who did not wish to live in the Old Hall. Haden Hill House has plenty to entertain younger visitors too and the museum has a lively programme of events and activities for all ages as well as a popular selection of activities for schools. Haden Old Hall is semi-detached to the Victorian house. The Hall was probably originally built around the late 1600s and evidence suggests it was two farm dwellings. By the time Mr Haden-Best inherited in the 1870s he wished to build a new house to live in. We believe he intended to eventually demolish the old hall and build an extension to the Victorian house in its place, but this never happened. Although the Victorian house is furnished as a museum with Victorian objects, Haden Old Hall is now just a shell after it was damaged by fire and partly restored. It is now under renovations and run by volunteers.. In the last hundred years, Haden Hall and House have both been used as a refuge for evacuees in World War II and a shelter during bombing raids. The newer Victorian mansion is now internally designed as it would have been back in the days of the Haden family, although unfortunately there isn’t much of the original furnishings of the home, the museum is brilliantly alike. The Old Hall however, very regretfully is now a mere shell of its original Tudor magnificence. The hall had been near destroyed by fire some years ago and although has been restored, the hall now sits completely empty with nothing more than its plaster walls and beautiful oak floors.
