The oldest serving private library in the UK, The Leeds Library (not to be confused with Leeds Central Library) opened up in 1768 and still offers a unique service to its members to this day.

 

It is said to provide shelter for one of its former employees from many years ago. It’s widely thought that in 1884, Chief Librarian John McAllister was working late into the evening when he encountered a “pallid and hairless” figure in one of the corridors. He later learned that the ghost he witnessed looked just like his predecessor Thomas Sternberg – maybe he just has a pile of work to get through still?

Ruthin Gaol, Denbighshire

 

Saturday 7th April 2018

 

9pm till 2am

 

£35 per ticket

untitled

There has been a prison on the Ruthin Gaol site since the seventeenth century. It is one of the most impressive

buildings in North Wales and the only purpopse-built Pentonville style prison open to the public.

There have been many additions to the gaol, between the years 1803 to 1866. The building served as the county

gaol until 1866 when the new four storey Pentonville style wing was added. In 1916 HM Prison, Ruthin was closed.

 

Many prisoners routinely spent a part of their sentence in solitary confinement in the "dark cell".This cell had no window or lighting and once inside, with the door tightly shut, it would have been almost impossible to tell if it was day or night.

William Kerr,probably the Gaol's most infamous Gaoler was renowned for treating the inmates so badly.

Serving in the Gaol from 1871 to 1892, he used to ban prisoners from food, excericse and beat them if he deemed that they had misbehaved.He used to taunt them, bangning on doors and whipping them at all times of the day, and jangle the cell keys outside the cells, infuriating inmates. His spirit still seems to linger, and he is commonly seen by staff and guests alike, and previous investigations have recorded the banging on cell doors, commonly associated with the infamous William Kerr. He left the Gaol age 57 one day, and vanished. Noone knows what happened to him.

The Gaoler feared by many just seemed to 'vanish'.

 

There is lots of paranormal activity at the Gaol so dare you spend the night with Spookseekers !!

The Old Nick Theatre in Gainsborough is a fascinating and frightening place for an overnight ghost hunt. With more than 25 documented deaths on this site this is a foreboding and sinister place.

 

Before becoming a theatre in 1979, for over one hundred years the old nick was the Divisional headquarters for the Lincolnshire Police, and Gainsborough Magistrates court.

 

With its male & female cells, main court room, and Judge’s chambers there’s loads to investigate.

We just had to come back to investigate this amazing location!!

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!
