Rowton Moor - Haunted History

Rowton Moor, Chester

Chester, Cheshire

The Battle of Rowton Moor took place here during the English Civil War in 1645, and it has left its mark on the land forever. It was one of the most bloody battles of the conflict with a huge number of English soldiers brutally killed here.

The area is now haunted by the ghosts of men on horseback, who are said to appear each year around September 24th. Walkers have reported hearing the faint sound of music echoing across the landscape, which is thought to be the ghost of William Lawes, King Charles' court musician, who was shot down by a parliamentarian.
