Towneley Hall - Haunted History
The first hall built on the grounds of Towneley Hall dates back to 1380 and has been added to over the years. The Baroque-style entrance seen today was built in 1726. The prominent Towneley family inhabited the hall for almost five centuries, until it was taken over by Burnley Borough Council, who opened the park to the public for the first time in 1902.
Paranormal activity at the hall, which has hosted the 'Most Haunted Live!' team, includes the disembodied sounds of children laughing and crying and an apparition seen gliding across the ancient hallways, as well as doors opening and closing on their own and loud unexplained noises heard in the dead of night.
The grounds are said to be just as haunted as the hall itself. There have been numerous sightings of the ghost of a lady in white seen stood on the turrets at night. Many people believe she jumped to her death, while others think she was looking for her lost lover.
