Charnock Hall - Haunted History
Charnock Hall seems like an unlikely location for a haunting, it's not a big old castle or an old remote manor house. It's a house that is said to be very paranormally active and it stands at the end of a quiet cul de sac in the outskirts of Preston.
Charnock Hall has a long history and was once owned by the royal family. In the 17th century, Robert Charnock, a Catholic priest lived here, it was around this time that Catholicism was frowned upon and many services were conducted here in secrecy. Residents have witnessed dark shadowy figures, that look remarkably like priests.
Some who have investigated the house before have reported getting locked inside the bathroom and seeing another person face transform into that of a nun. The electricity is also said to have flicked off in strange circumstances.
The first paranormal experience that the previous owner, Carol Rawlinson, had was when she first moved in to the house and had the stairs removed as part of renovation works. She heard the sound of someone walking up the stairs, despite the fact the new staircase hadn't been installed yet. She said her stereo also frequently turns itself on in the middle of the night. On another occasion, a friend waiting for Carol outside saw a boy bouncing a ball in the upstairs window.
