The Grade I listed remains of the priory in Runcorn are said to be one of the most haunted locations in the area. Most of the structure was demolished following the dissolution in 1536. All that remains today is the excavated ruins of the Church, cloister, chapter house and dormitory and latrines.
The remains of the abbey are said to be haunted by dark shadowy figures seen wandering the ground. Loud disembodied screams and female cries have been heard coming from the upper gallery, and a pale skull-like face has been witnessed in the undercroft - could this be connected to the 130 skeletons that were found during the site's excavation?
