Ghost Hunt Abbey Pumping Station

Abbey Pumping Station

Join Haunted Evenings as we explore this new venue in Leicester… Built in 1891, this truly magnificent imposing Victorian building houses the 4 original and fully operational giant steam (beam) engines which tower over the equivalent of several storeys high, their presence gives a stark and somewhat eerie reminder of advancing industrialisation. The beam room which stretches over 3 accessible floors is creepy enough during the day, especially when you look down into the dark basement several storeys below and even more so when you discover the tragic accident of one of the construction workers who plummeted to his death in the basement engine room in 1890, just as the building was nearing completion…..

 Paranormal Pumping Station!

Robert Richardson, an engineering labourer, working on the roof of this magnificent building, tragically lost his footing and fell approximately 45 feet sustaining fatal internal injuries which led to his death 2 days after the accident in 1890. His work colleagues were not granted time off to attend his funeral, so as a mark of respect, the engineers inscribed a simple cross into the brickwork at the spot where he fell. Is the spirit of Robert still in the building? Volunteers at the Pumping station experience strange feelings in parts of the buildings, one staff member in particular does not like to work alone after dark due to hearing strange knocks and bangs she can’t explain.

Whilst it is early days as to exactly who haunts this location, Haunted Evenings were privileged to be the very first to carry out a paranormal investigation here in July 2016 and we are pleased to announce this place is definitely haunted! Now you have the chance to discover for yourself by still being one of the first to truly investigate this location using all the latest equipment. We will have access to several areas on site including the Victorian family house built to accommodate the Pumping Station former Managers. In your groups, you will disappear off into isolated pockets of this vast site to conduct a variety of authentic ghost hunting vigils. Dare you enter the unknown?!
