Tours are quite often based upon the story of Anne Tottenham with a visitor whose body seemingly went through the roof and left behind a hole located in the ceiling. This can still be seen still today. Anne Tottenham was left in the tapestry room to rest. Only there did she remain entirely until her death in 1775.
