The Very Haunted Riddlesden House in Yorkshire

Today's post will take you across the pond. Riddlesden House in Yorkshire couldn't be more haunted if it tried. It's said to have been inhabited by a "white lady" who drowned when her horse threw her into a pond, a "grey lady" whose husband starved her to death after discovering her affair, and ghostly children who leave toys around the house. Add to this the "assassin dishwasher" - a kitchen worker who was an assassin by night - and a Scotsman angered by a miscarriage of justice, and you probably wouldn't get a very good night's sleep.

The house was built in the 1630s but it's believed that there was something on the site going back to Saxon times. It would stand to reason that at some point in its history there have been births and deaths here.
"Through the 75 years that people have worked here with the National Trust there have been various stories from them and from people who have visited about the ghosts that are here."
With its ruined and derelict wing, East Riddlesden Hall can certainly seem slightly spooky at any time, but it seems that East Riddlesden's ghosts and spirits are really making their presence felt just now. You can read more about the haunting here.

  1. So, I've read these four Posts about the haunted houses & that you took pictures, but did you actually ever experience such phenomenon? I have actually experienced things myself, but not sure what to make of it. I'm still doing research myself, but not sure if I want to find out the truth.
