The hall is renowned as of the most haunted locations in Britain, and for many years fright-seekers have flocked to experience, test and film the amazing phenomena taking place in and around the ancient building.
Resident spirits include the legendary Grey Lady - Dorothy Southworth - who witnessed the brutal murder of her young lover and his companions at the hands of her own family, shallow graves containing human remains, the immovable blood stains of a slain priest, ghostly cries in the night, the spirit of a suicide, the trial of a resident witch at Lancaster Castle, a terrifying vigil in 1924 and many strange physical and photographic anomalies that defy rational explanation.
The Hall promotes a regular programme of ghost-hunt events and haunted tours where audiences can experience and participate in live interactive paranormal investigations. You can check out the ghost evening programme on the Samlesbury Hall events listing. Early booking is recommended though – they’re always a sell out.
