Haunted Yorkshire

Temple Newsam, Leeds

Temple Newsam is one of the great historic houses of England. Home of the Ingram family for over 300 years this fine Tudor-Jacobean mansion dates back to the late 15th Century.

With 500 years of history the house is said to be one of the most haunted buildings in Yorkshire and has many tales of ghosts and unexplained happenings.  This was the birthplace of Lord Darnley, husband of Mary Queen of Scots.

 

Carbrook Hall - Sheffield's Most Haunted Public House

An Ancient Hall, now a public house has been standing since the 1600s. The land around Carbrook Hall has changed dramatically over the centuries but the building is still intact with original features.

 

Screaming Skull in Burton Agnes Hall, East Yorkshire

Burton Agnes Hall was built during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. The youngest daughter of the family, Anne, was murdered but had a dying wish to have her head laid to rest in the new Hall that she would never come to live in. Her sisters refused but after she was buried strange happenings began to take place.  Finally Anne's head was placed within the Hall. Future attempts to remove the skull has resulted in more hauntings - moanings and screaming - and eventually it was hidden somewhere within the Hall so that it would be undisturbed.

 

Long Marston

In 1644, Oliver Cromwell defeated a Royalist army at the Battle of Marston Moor, about a mile north of Long Marston village. The ghosts of the Royalist soldiers have frequently been seen in the area, including three phantoms in Cavalier costume. The Old Hall in the village, used by Cromwell during the battle, is said to be haunted by his ghost.

 

Bolton Abbey

King George V was one of the witnesses to the Marquis of Hartington's account of seeing the ghost of a monk in the rectory in 1912. A black-robed spectre that haunts the church accompanied by a strong smell of incense usually appears in July in the daytime.

 

Fountains Abbey

A ghostly choir has been heard chanting in the Abbey's Chapel of Nine Altars but there's more ghostly happenings in nearby Fountains Hall. Built by Sir Stephen Proctor, the hall is haunted by the blue ghost of his daughter who witnessed her father's evil doings and remains at the hall for eternity. An Elizabethan man has also been seen emerging from the panelling in the stone hall.

 

Nappa Hall, Askrigg

Mary Queen of Scots is said to haunt Nappa Hall, the 15th Century fortified manor house. She stayed there in 1568. A vivid account of the apparition was written by a visitor in 1878.

 

York, Europe's Most Haunted City?

York boasts more than its fair share of things that go bump in the night.

Legendary Legionnaires

One morning in 1953 apprentice plumber Harry Martindale was installing a new central heating system in the cellars of the Treasurer's House in the shadow of the Minster. Suddenly he heard the distant sound of a horn, which became gradually louder. Then a great carthorse emerged through the brick wall, ridden by a dishevelled Roman soldier. He was followed by several more soldiers, dressed in green tunics and plumed helmets. It looked as though they were walking on their knees - their lower legs and feet were nowhere to be seen. Then the ghostly crew moved into a recently excavated area, and it became clear that they were walking on an old Roman road, the Via Decumana, which had been buried 15 inches below the surface. When a bewildered Harry scrambled upstairs to safety, the Treasurer's House curator reportedly said to him, "You've seen the Roman soldiers, haven't you?" The ghosts had been seen on several previous occasions.

The Treasurer's House is open to the public and hosts regular tours of the haunted cellar.

The Grey Lady

A theatrical ghost, the Grey Lady haunts a room behind the dress circle of the Georgian Theatre Royal. During Medieval times this was part of the old Hospital of St Leonard, which was run by an order of nuns. One young nun fell in love with a nobleman and the pair became lovers, but when her scandalous behaviour became known she was thrown into a windowless room - now part of the theatre - which was bricked up to become her living tomb. A gruesome tale, but apparently if the nun in her grey habit is spotted in the dress circle it's a good omen for that night's production!

The Funeral Guest

Once known as the most beautiful of York's many ghosts, this long-haired, elegant apparition has frequently appeared at All Saints Church, Pavement, one of the City's most striking churches, and is in the habit of welcoming funeral processions at the door.

A Ghostly Tudor Lady

Could the finely dressed Tudor lady who walks through walls at the King's Manor be the ghost of Queen Catherine Howard, who was King Henry VIII's guest there in 1541? The lady carries roses in her hands, and the part of the building where she has been spied was once the Rose Garden. Catherine, the fourth of Henry's six wives, was executed shortly after her stay, and possibly the fact that she entertained her lover Thomas Culpeper in the Manor didn't help her chances of a long and happy marriage to the fickle Henry.

The Headless Earl

Thomas Percy, Earl of Northumberland, was executed for treason in York: as a staunch Catholic he had plotted against the Protestant Elizabeth I. He was beheaded in 1572, and his head stuck on a large spike on Micklegate Bar as a warning to anyone else with similar ideas. There it remained for many years until eventually recovered and buried in the churchyard of Holy Trinity church in Goodramgate. The body of the Earl has been seen on many a night staggering between the graves, searching for his mislaid head.
