Stockport, Manchester

St. Thomas Hospital was one a workhouse, known locally as "The Grubber". It opened its doors in 1841 to house some of Manchester's poorest families. The now abandoned building is said to be rife with paranormal activity, including a general feeling of unease, unexplained noises, reports of objects being thrown by an unseen force and even the apparition of a man. He's been spotted in one of the old offices. The mortuary is also said to be haunted by a patient who was cut open on the slab whilst he was still alive.

Imprisonment, isolation and fear lurk with the walls of this former workhouse in Greater Manchester, where many lost souls said to haunt. More than 20,000 people rioted at the workhouse within its first year of opening. The grim building, known as The Grubber, held their workers like prisoners, splitting families apart and forced to stay inhumane living conditions, it's no wonder there is strange paranormal activity reported.
