New Hall has witnessed many historic events over the past eight hundred years, and numerous families have lived and worked within it's walls, so it is not surprising that there are a number of ghost stories associated with the house.

There are so many stories relating to New Hall, however probably the most macabre legend refers to the ghost of a local man who had a speech impediment. In the year of 1745 an army under the Duke of Cumberland was sent in pursuit of "Bonnie Prince Charlie" - pretender to the English throne, who was marching from Scotland to England. The Duke's advance party lost it's way near Tyburn and asked for directions from a local man, who, having no roof to his mouth was unable to make himself understood. Thinking he was a spy, an officer ordered his execution. The victim's body was then thrown in a ditch at Eachelhurst and his head carried in triumph on a halberd to New Shipton, where it was flung into an oak tree. The tree was felled in 1827 at which point the skull rolled out. Since then, at the hour of dusk, the nebulous bodiless head makes it's appearance, drifting slowly from the Wylde Green Road, across New Hall estate towards the spot where the body was tossed.

Inside the house a lady in white is said to haunt the Red Landing. No-One is certain who she is, but perhaps she is the wife of Henry Sacheverell who dies at the beginning of the 17th century, and the many coats of arms which decorate the timbers of the ceiling on the landing remind her of the lost heritage of her own children, for her husband bestowed New Hall on Valens, the elder of his two illegitimate sons by "Mistress Keics".
