Bolling Hall – Bradford 29 April 2017

Bolling Hall is one of the oldest buildings in Bradford, West Yorkshire, England. It is currently used as a museum and education centre. The building is about a mile from the centre of Bradford. Its surroundings are suburban in character.

Before the Industrial Revolution, Bradford was a small town and difficult to defend as it lay in a basin. However, Bolling Hall occupies a commanding position on a hillside. The earliest part of this building, dating from the 14th century, has been interpreted as a pele tower, although Bradford is somewhat outside the typical geographical area for these defensive structures.

The Manor of Bolling (Bollinc) is first mentioned in Domesday Book and was at that time in the possession of a man named Sindi. The manor then came under the control of Ilbert de Lacy. By 1316 the manor was owned by William Bolling, and Bollings owned the estate until the late 15th century when control went to the Tempests who held the estate until 1649. The estate changed hands several times thereafter until eventually it was let to several tenants until being presented to Bradford Corporation in 1912. It was opened as a museum three years later.

Secret Location 18/02/2017

On last Saturdays cold and windy night the Sensitive Souls team geared up and went to a secret location in Morecambe, Lancashire. What we found was some really compelling evidence and a few frights in the pitch dark rooms. Please check below for our photos (more to come).

Lancaster Grand Theatre

We welcome all over 18’s to join us on an evening of ghost hunting and paranormal investigation at the infamous Lancaster Grand Theatre!

The Grand Theatre in Lancaster, Lancashire is one of the oldest theatres in England and the third oldest in Britain, having been in near continuous use since 1782. Though it was seen numerous extensions and alterations, much of the original stone has survived. The theatre is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II Listed building.

Why would we investigate here? Well a grey lady has been seen gliding and is believed to be a previous actress named Sarah Siddons (she played the role Lady Macbeth in 1795) She was also the sister-in-law of Whitlock who opened the Theatre in June 1782. A male spirit has also be seen who was a traveling actor, and went by the name of Harald.

This event never disappoints and is only £35 PP and it runs from 10pm – 4am Saturday 25th of February. You will also receive a light buffett meal and a drink of tea or coffee with all equipment supplied by ourselves.
