Dare to investigate one of Morecambe’s oldest buildings? It won’t be a “walk in the park!”

 

Join Spookseekers as we explore and investigate this now eerily empty and abandoned Victorian hotel in the old seaside town of Morecambe.

 

This former glory, the Park Hotel, has been closed for years with many of the original furnishings, including bedding, just simply left behind! From old reception rooms and bars, to stairs that lead to nowhere,  countless bedrooms in various states of repair, back to bare walls on the upper servants landing, an old library, cellars with servants kitchen and a stunning Observatory that shows the marks of where it was struck by lightening!

 

All this AND the fact that many locals strongly believe this hotel, built in 1900, is one of the most haunted places in this seaside ghost town, this is a perfect place to spend a Spooky evening!

oakwellHouse

Join us at this rarely investigated location !!

 

Oakwell's most famous legend concerns the ghost of William Batt, owner of the house in 1684. He was a young man of 25, a bachelor whose widowed mother, Elizabeth, lived at Oakwell. The best account of the ghost story comes from the Victorian writer Mrs Gaskell in her "Life of Charlotte Bronte".

 

Her account is as follows:

"Captain Batt was believed to be far away; his family was at Oakwell; when in the dusk on a winter evening, he came stalking along the lane, through the hall and up the stairs, into his own room, where he vanished. He had been killed in a duel in London that very same afternoon of December 9th 1684."

 

The legend also states that he left a bloody footprint behind in a bedroom.

Join Spookseekers on a ghost hunt at Thorne Former Workhouse, Doncaster.

 

Thorne Union Workhouse was erected in 1838 on a site at the west of Thorne at a cost of £3,315 and was to house up to 200 inmates.

 

A casual block was erected to the east of the site and an infirmary to the west with a mortuary behind it. This is where they would keep the pigs.

 

By the late 1920’s the workhouse could house around 111 inmates however the average occupancy would been around 80 people.

 

By 1930 it could house up to 108 inmates including 29 males and 5 females in the casual wards. At this time it was deemed to be too small an establishment and was closed a few years later.

 

Until the 1960’s a small brick built mortuary with a massive stone slab stood at the back of the infirmary. Most of the dead who had laid on it were burned in unmarked graves. The bell that was tolled to bring the residents back in at night no longer peels.

 

Will we be able to contact the spirits of the people that are still in this place?

Join Spookseekers as we return the infamous Golden Fleece York.

 

York is an extremely haunted city and so it is no surprise that one of its oldest pubs, built in 1503, is haunted. There are thought to be fifteen spectres in residence at the hotel, but the most noted of which and the most talked about is Lady Alice Peckett, wife of John Peckett, who used to be the mayor of York and also the owner of the hotel. Many guests have reported seeing Alice wandering the corridors of the hotel, moving furniture around and walking up and down staircases in the small hours of the night.

 

The ghost of an Canadian airman who fell to his death from one of the upper windows of the hotel during World War II. After his untimely demise, he took up residence at the hotel as a non-paying guest.

 

Other ghosts include a man who is often seen wearing a 16-17th century red carrying a pistol, in the bottom bar of the pub. He’s joined by a grumpy old man, also seen in the bottom bar, and by a young boy from Victorian times who was trampled to death by horses who is regularly seen in the top bar.

Housed in one of the most impressive Victorian buildings in Leeds, the Thackray Medical Museum is truly unique and is the only museum of its kind in the North of England.

 

There are said to be many ghosts that haunt this former mental hospital and workhouse and with such a terrifying history it is not surprising. The building itself is vast and has many investigation areas including a pitch black 'theatre' room and an authentic Victorian Street.

 

By day Thackray Medical Museum is a reincarnation of life in Victorian Leeds where visitors walk through a reproduction of slum streets complete with authentic sights, sounds and smells and are invited to follow the lives, ailments and treatments of eight Victorian characters, making the choices that determine their survival amongst the rats, fleas and bedbugs. Pain, Pus and Blood describes surgery before anaesthesia, and how pain relief progressed and having a Baby focuses on developments in safety for childbirth.

 

Dare you join Spookseekers for this eerie Investigation!
