Richard Carpenter – The Ghosts Of Motley Hall

Richard Carpenter – The Ghosts Of Motley Hall (Puffin, 1977)



No one lives in the empty old mansion any more, but Motley Hall is still home to a thriving community of ghosts who are more than a match for any psychic investigators or building speculators who come nosing around. Another hilarious comedy by the author of Catweazle.

The specres of Sir George, Bodkin the clown, Sir Francis of the gambling addiction, Matt the stablelad and the White Lady learn that the Hall is to be sold and torn to the ground! It is not unlikely this plot was used more than once in the series.

They had their own song.

“Sing we all of Motley Hall
Motley Hall! Motley Hall!
Home for us whatever may befall!
Ding Dong! Ghosts All!”
