Ghost Stories: A ghost of a woman in 18th century clothing has been witnessed waving to staff Mysterious footsteps, often followed by a smell of urine. Feelings of dread and depression in certain parts of the building. In the recreation of the Victorian street a ghost of a man in a white coat has been witnessed many times. Intelligent poltergeist activity such as knocks and bangs reply to calling out
History: In the late 1840s after an influx of Irish vagrants in the wake of the Great Famine, the old Lady Lane workhouse was unable to cope so the “Poor Law Guardians” of Leeds resolved to build a new workhouse with the latest facilities. The new workhouse comprised a main block, infirmary, chapel, and “idiotic” wards with a large new infirmary added to the site in 1872-4. The original infirmary, to the north of the chapel, had up to 140 beds, including some for the mentally ill. In 1904, the building underwent a “reconstruction” and several new buildings were erected at the site, the updated Workhouse now accommodated 784 paupers who existed under a spartan regime of work in return for food and accommodation, with discipline rigorously applied by the Master, who was responsible to the Guardians. Since 1997 the building has been used to house the impressive Thackray Medical Museum with its highlight being a real life Victorian Street and operating theatre. Its conversion from hospital to museum seems to have stirred a great deal of energy and the building is well known for paranormal activity.

Never Investigated By Any Other Paranormal Team And Is Exclusive Only To The Uk Ghost Hunts Team.

Many Unexplained Figures And Noises Have Been Said To Roam The Hall Over The Years As Uk Ghost Hunts And Guests Will Now Investigate This Great Location

The Endcliffe estate can be traced back to 1333 when John de Elcliffe was awarded a financial grant, at that time the estate extended considerably and took in land between the Porter and Sheaf valleys. It is believed that the first Endcliffe Hall was built in the reign of George II (1727 – 1760) although Sheffield historian J. Edward Vickers says there may have been an earlier building on the site. The hall was owned from 1818 by the merchant William Hodgson and included 50 acres of land and cost £6,700. The hall later passed to Henry Wilkinson, a Sheffield silversmith before being bought by John Brown in August 1860.

Brown had previously lived at the large seven bedroomed house of Shirle Hill in Cherry Tree Road, Nether Edge and entertained the Prime Minister Lord Palmerston there in 1862. However Brown was looking for a more impressive structure to entertain his visitors and wanted a building that was “…. specially adapted for dispensing hospitalities on a scale worthy of such distinguished visitors”. Brown’s first action on acquiring the building was to pull the old hall down and replace it with the current building which cost £100,000 to build with a further £60,000 spent on the furnishings. Brown was determined to use Sheffield craftsmen during the work on the hall and in addition to the architects Flockton & Abbot he employed local firms such as John Jebson Smith (staircases), Longden & Co. (kitchen stoves), Messrs Craven (ornamental plasterwork), William Gibson (carpentry), Mr Pitt (plumbing and glazing) and John and Joseph Rogers (decorating).

Such was the rarity of such a fine building being erected in Sheffield at that time, that when the hall was finished it was opened to the public for three days attracting huge crowds and much praise with the Sheffield Telegraph calling it, “the public advantage of personal munificence” in its edition of 24 May 1865. After the death of his wife in 1881, Brown gradually withdrew from public life, his health deteriorated and he spent increasing amounts of time in southern England. John Brown left Endcliffe Hall for the last time in 1892 and sold Endcliffe Hall for £26,000 in 1895 (a year before his death) to Barber Brothers and Wortley for building development. The development never took place and various plans were proposed for the future of the hall, which in the interim hosted exhibitions and dances.

Cairan o’Keeffe From The Popular Program “Most Haunted” Will Be Joining Ukgh On This Evening At Strelley Hall In Nottingham

Strelley Hall in Nottingham is a period building in Strelley, Nottingham.  The Hall was originally built as a castle around 1200 AD and was modified in the early late 18th century and again in the 19th century.

Strelley Hall’s history dates back to the Saxon times, and has even been the subject of an archaeological dig, uncovering historical artefacts and dating most of the masonary in the range of 1250 to 1350.

There are many original features of the building including The Castle Room, thought to be part of the ancient tower, and the Panelled Room, dating back to Georgian times.  There are also dungeons to explore as well as a vast cellar, with dark corners and foreboding feelings

Nicholas Strelley was the last member of the family to own the Hall, because in 1678 he gambled it away and eventually the Hall and estates passed to Ralph Edge, a lawyer.  There is a family tree kept near to The Castle Room which shows the generations of Strelleys from the time when they took the estate around 1200 through to the period when they lost the estate in 1678, to the present day.

 

It isn’t just the hall that has such history attached to it; the surrounding area is also steeped in history.  Strelley Village was a thriving industrial town in the 16th and 17th centuries.  It was one of the first areas to be exploited for coal, and there are remnants of many bell pits around the village.
The Gate Lodge has some medieval walls, particularly those abutting the road.  The formation of the walls is similar to the Church, indicating it may have been constructed at a similar time.  At the north end of the car park at the front of the main building is The Dungeon.  It was used to imprison people, mainly poachers but other criminals were definitely imprisoned there.
There is so much history to this building, but to fully appreciate the magnificence of it you have to explore its cellars, dungeon and rooms.  This building has never been investigated, but with a history dating back to the 1200s, who can tell what spirits or ghosts walk within these ancient walls?
What we can tell you is that Nicholas Strelley put a curse on gambling at Strelley and was believed to have visited Strelley at nights, uninvited after he lost the estates.  His appearances caused some serving wenches to lose their minds and it is they who are believed to haunt the Hall.  They appear to be quite benign, but it is not until much later that certain ghosts behaved in a frightening way to living humans.  There are many Strelley ghosts that explore these walls, but exactly who they are and why they still haunt the hall will be for you and the Uk Ghost Hunts Team to find out.

 

At Strelley Hall, experiments you will be able to take part in include: Ouija boards; table tipping; glass divination; EVPS sessions; séance’s; lone villages.  Book your tickets early for this truly magnificent building and ghostly investigation.

St John’s House Museum is a historic house located in Warwick, just east of the town centre, in Warwickshire, England.

It is now a museum, run by Warwickshire County Council, and has had a varied history spanning almost 400 years. To the side of the house is a small garden belonging to St John’s and to the rear is the large St. Nicholas’ Park.

The existing building is not the first on the site. The first recorded one was a hospital dedicated to St John the Baptist which was founded at some time during the 12th century the reign of Henry II. John was a popular choice of dedication during this period and served the double purpose of giving casual overnight boarding and foods to poor travellers, and for ongoing help for the local poor and ill.

After changing hands during the monastic dissolution the building was altered almost beyond recognition in 1626 and transformed into the current building. In 1788, George Greville, 2nd Earl of Warwick purchased the property and it stayed in the family until1960. During this period, in 1815 it was turned from a family residence into a private school

In the 1960s, the property was passed from the Earls of Warwick to Warwickshire County Council who turned it into a museum which it still remains. The ground floor is composed of social history exhibits and a re-creation of the school that occupied the building. On the first floor is a museum dedicated to the history of the Royal Warwickshire Fusiliers.

Ordsall Hall is a historic house and a former stately home in Ordsall, an area of Salford, in Greater Manchester, England. It dates back more than 750 years, although the oldest surviving parts of the present hall were built in the 15th century.

 

Ordsall Hall is a formerly moated Tudor mansion, the oldest parts of which were built during the 15th century, although there has been a house on the site for over 750 years. David de Hulton is recorded as the owner of the original hall, in 1251. The manor of Ordsall came into the Vicky Grantpossession of the Radclyffe family in about 1335, but it was not until 1354 that Sir John Radclyffe established his right of inheritance.

A view of the west side of the west wing, with the Great Hall in the middle

During the 1340s Sir John Radclyffe campaigned with Edward III in France, distinguishing himself at the battles of Caen, Crècy and Calais. As a reward for his service, the king allowed Sir John to take some Flemish weavers back to his Ordsall estate, where he built cottages for them to live in. English weaving skills at that time were poor, and textiles from Manchester were considered to be of particularly poor quality, so the Flemish weavers were employed in instructing the local weavers. They also started up a silk weaving industry, the foundation for Manchester’s later cotton industry.

The Dutch humanist and theologian Erasmus stayed at Ordsall Hall in 1499, and described it thus:

The original cruck hall was replaced by the present Great Hall in 1512, after Sir Alexander Radclyffe was appointed High Sheriff of Lancashire. The hall is typical of others built at that time in the northwest of England, although it is one of the largest, and is unusual for the period in having no wall fireplace. The hall has an elaborate roof structure, as in the similar Rufford Old Hall. There is a slightly later small room above the large oriel bay, which may be an early addition as at Samlesbury Hall.

Other alterations and additions were made during the 17th century, including a modest brick house added onto the west end in 1639, perhaps intended as a home for Sir Alexander’s bailiff, as he himself no longer used the hall as his main residence by that time. The house was built at 90° to the timber-framed building, to which it was later joined. During the Civil War Sir Alexander, as a Royalist, was imprisoned and suffered financial hardship. Reduced means eventually forced his heir, John Radclyffe, into selling the hall to Colonel John Birch in 1662, thus ending more than 300 years of his family’s occupation

WEST BROMWICH MAGISTRATES COURTS GHOST Hunt chi

The Courts have stood on this site for centuries with many a people sentenced to death or imprisonment. The current courts were built in 1890 to replace the ageing, dilapidated 17th century courts that stood before.

This newer Victorian building is detached and covers 17,000 sq ft in total, these new courts incorporated new and redesigned gallows to accommodate society’s acceptance that undesirables should be sentenced, terminated and efficiently disposed of at a single Law establishment.

The large central court room surrounds the judge in decorative wood panelling and a bomb/ bullet proof cubicle was incorporated in later years to contain and protect the more dangerous prisoners.

There are several less elaborate court rooms to cater for a range of prisoners and crimes and a bank of prison cells in the basement in a secure area, where prisoners await their fate or their final breakfast before meeting their maker.

All records have been securely locked away from society for over 100 years and even though public hangings took place here little detail exists other than the atmosphere you feel when you enter the building. The court closed in April 2011.

Woodchester Mansion Ghost Hunt 2014

Woodchester Mansion Ghost Hunt Investigation 2014

Join us on Friday 18th July 2014 from 9pm-3am for a paranormal investigation as this beautifully creepy Gothic mansion.
Hidden in a secluded Cotswold valley, the mansion has never been completed due to the builders mysteriously abandoning it mid construction in 1873.
Woodchester was destined to become a mental institution after it’s failed completion, but the Second World War came and the Mansion became a base for American and Canadian troops. It was during training that several lives were lost when a bridge collapsed, plunging some of the troops into the lake and to a watery grave. Their bodies were stored inside the building and some believe that they haunt Woodchester mansion to this very day.

SMETHWICK BATHS GHOST HUNT 26h July 2014

Smethwick Swimming Centre, previously known as Thimblemill Baths, has gone through many interesting changes, had famous faces pass through its doors and also survived the Second World War. Opened on the 30th March 1933 and designed by Chester Button and Roland Fletcher, the art deco features of the building were inspired by the high arched roof of aircraft hangers in France. In turn these features were derived from the Scandinavian timber construction of the Breslau exhibition pavilion in the early 1920s. Other similar designs can also be found at the Royal Horticultural Hall in London. Person0 Available

Location: Smethwick, Birmingham

During WWII, the vast network of underground tunnels and cellars which lie beneath the complex were used as an air raid shelter; posters and drawings from that time can still be seen to this day. There was also a U.S. Air Force base just around the corner from the baths and it is thought that they would have made use of this underground space too.

Paranormal activity is rife at this venue and so plentiful that there just isn’t room to detail all of it here. However, without a doubt, the most haunted part of the building is underground, in the aforementioned network of tunnels and cellars which are both creepy and disorientating before any mention of the supernatural is even made.

Apparitions in this area include a man in a green boiler suit, two gentlemen apparently engaged in a frantic chase, a black American Airman and even a horse, to name but a few. The phantom equine may seem out of place until one learns that this particular part of the cellars was built on/underneath a moated farm.

 
The underground room once used as a morgue apparently plays host to a spirit of a man with long hair and beard, who has shown himself on several occasions. Meanwhile, in the air raid shelter, strange blue lights have been seen and often members of staff will enter this area to find pyramids of stones that have been neatly built on the floor. A small boy has been sensed in here and many paranormal investigations have picked up on a girl who goes by the name of Emily. In recent years an escape tunnel was discovered which now runs underneath a block of flats. One resident of these flats has regularly seen a little girl in her home and it is thought likely that this is the ghost of Emily too.

During some refurbishment work in one of the tunnels, a workman kept complaining about a group of children who were running about and making a lot of noise, and despite the management’s reassurance that there was no way any children could be down there, he would not be convinced. Another workman, upon appearing at the manager’s door breathless and white as a sheet, described how he had been working in the cellars when he looked up to see the ghostly face of a little boy staring back at him through a hole in the wall.

However, while the tunnels and cellars are certainly very active, they do not have an exclusive claim to the paranormal activity within the building. In the changing rooms upstairs, the lights are on a motion sensor, yet after-hours they often switch on in sequence, as if someone is walking around, despite the doors being locked. Footsteps are also heard emanating from this area in similar circumstances, and wet footprints have appeared hours after the last visitor has left, leaving staff members utterly baffled.

We really have only touched the surface here in terms of the paranormal activity experienced on a regular basis at Smethwick Baths. It is certainly one of the more unusual venues we have seen on our travels, which makes us confident that you will be as eager to investigate it as we are!

Picture

Join us as we undertake an investigation of the Galleries of Justice Nottingham. The galleries are one of the top locations in the UK and offers just about everything a paranormal investigator could wish for. Apparitions are seen on every floor of this amazing building, security guards leave in terror with reports of screams and strange figures being seen in the main hall ways. Cell doors slam for no reason and footsteps are heard in the court rooms. This will be our 8th visit to this location and will be the best one so far. Will you spend an hour alone in the dark cells? Or walk to corridor to the condemned mans cell?
With hangings, murder, torture and the cries of so many lost souls dare you join the team at the world famous Galleries of Justice?

Details for booking : This is a team only event so please only contact us if you are in a team or run a team. We have limited this event to 4 teams. Each team can bring a max of 12 team members along to this event. The cost is £250 per team, so if you bring 2 members its £250 or if you bring 12 members its still £250. Please contact us for payment details.
