Knottingley Town Hall is reported to be rife with ghostly accounts and this may well be due to the fact that not only does this Town Hall have it’s own history but it has been built on the site of a Medieval Monastery. Opened in 1865, Knottingley Town Hall has bore witness to tragedies and fatal accidents. Several accounts of strong paranormal phenomenon have been reported here; unusual sightings as well as unexplained whistles and disembodied voices. Others have accounted for the place having poltergeist activity, the stairs and cellars appear to have heightened activity. What will you experience on your Haunted Evening?!….

Split down into smaller (more vulnerable) groups, you will have access to all available areas at Knottingley Town Hall to see what you can experience after-dark. The team will be planning an array of experiments, from traditional vigils with a twist, to using all the very latest equipment. Whether you are a seasoned ghost hunter or this is your first time, they’ll be something for everyone, even the chance for the brave to “go it alone”!…

Event Blog / SPOILER!


We ended April’s run of events by investigating Knottingley Town Hall, a fairly modest looking building from the outside but one that certainly carries quite a paranormal punch! Built in 1865, the town hall was built on land which was once the site of a medieval monastery which may well explain why this location has heightened reports of activity.

This was the first investigation for us here last night and everyone soon got stuck into the variety of experiments we had planned in the main function room, old chamber room and basement areas. Here are some of the HIGHLIGHTS…..

TRADITIONAL VIGILS : Guests felt cold spots, the sense of being touched and for one group, a door closed of its own accord.
Likely one of the most intriguing results from our traditional experiments was the detection of the same energy spots found (with the use of dowsing rods) by all 3 groups in the main function room which led to each group going on to experience an active human pendulum experiment.

EQUIPMENT VIGILS : The most compelling evidence captured was down in the basement. An EVP was heard on playback saying “Bradley” in response to us asking for their name and on further review, he replies to the next question with “I believe so” when asked if he is affecting the lights. (Research suggests the name Bradley may have connections to Knottingley so quite fascinating results!).

Also down in the basement another EVP was heard earlier on in the evening during Group 2’s vigil that says “Get out of this building“- a Class A EVP that everyone could hear on playback – awesome! (Listen to the EVP’s below)
