Bolling Hall - Haunted History

Bolling Hall, Bradford

Bradford, West Yorkshire

Bolling Hall is one of the oldest buildings in Bradford. It currently houses a museum, but dating back to the 14th century, it had historical significance during the English Civil War as a Royalist stronghold. It is also said to be very paranormally active, with allegedly over twenty resident spooks.

In fact, the ghostly sightings date back to the Civil War when the Earl of Newcastle witnessed what he described as the spirit of a woman tugging on his bed sheets during the night. He claims that the woman told him to "pity poor Bradford", which convinced him to abort his plan to execute all of the town's residents, instead just ten were killed.

Other apparitions spotted in the property include the menacing ghost of a man in a long black coat who has been seen several times in the Blue Room. There's also said to be a lady in white, who has been seen floating effortlessly through the air before vanishing into the fireplace.

The hall is also said to be plagued by strange noises, like banging doors, unexplained footsteps and disembodied voices coming from otherwise empty rooms. Visitors have reported feeling as if they're been watched and a general sense of unease throughout the property.
