 History of Woodchester Mansion

This glorious Gothic 19th Century masterpiece was the brainchild of a William Leigh who purchased the land (formerly “Spring Park”) in 1854. He demolished the existing Ducie Family owned house to make way for this magnificent project – Woodchester Mansion – alas, the Mansion  was never to be completed. In 1873, some 15 years after work was started, Leigh died and all work stopped. His surviving family pursued with  little financial success to complete the Mansion. Records show that in 1894 the drawing room was updated and some rooms were habitable, but the family did not move in due to the sheer scale of incompletion. Leigh’s Grandaughters sold the estate to Barnwood House Trust, who intended to complete the mansion into a Mental Health Hospital but subsequently plans were shelved.  During World War II the grounds were used by Canadian and American troops and the mansion itself, used as a training college. Soon after the war it was abandoned to the elements but likely survived vandalism due to its isolating location.

Event Review / Spoiler!



After being snowed off (like a scene from Narnia) back in February, our rescheduled event at Woodchester Mansion last night was met with a constant downpour of “wet” rain, pretty much on cue as we met at the meeting point! Undeterred, guests descended on this unique and mysterious 1850’s mansion that sits eerily abandoned at the end of a bumpy and wood lined track. It’s hard to describe how imposing this building is as it comes into view, let alone when the heavens have opened! This part completed Mansion is like no other and last night it was a privilege to call it “home”.

So what did we all experience once we stepped inside this incredible location? Knocks, cold spots, voices and the feeling of unwell were just some of the moments reported on the night.

The cellar was a strange place to be, with an intense feel in one particular vaulted area. The name John was picked up here during a trigger vigil at the start of the investigation where spirit voices appeared louder and the vibe pod was being triggered. One of the guests (John) felt someone was stood behind him, with a real sense of unease. A voice captured suggested we were to “leave” and guests reported feeling sick with team member Louise needing to take time out after due to feeling high levels of unusual sickness. During a later vigil, an unexplainable knock was heard in the end cellar room that could not be replicated nor debunked.
The spirit name John was also sensed in an upper room during a Human Pendulum, believed to possibly be a 27 Canadian Soldier who left one of the guests feeling emotional. Cold spots were felt during this vigil.
A personal connection occurred during another human pendulum and during a ouija session, the name Lucy and Rob were both picked up on. Further possible names detected during the investigation were Thomas and Edward.

With so many areas to investigate, even with allocated lone vigil time, its fair to say that a 3.30am finish did not afford us the time really needed to cover every single room, the Mansion is simply huge!. With 3 investigations now completed at Woodchester Mansion, it will be interesting to conduct experiments elsewhere when we next visit (its a given that we will), Woodchester Mansion is certainly a fascinating location and one we can highly recommend!

Many thanks to all guests who ventured out in the blustery wet conditions and got stuck in to the investigation! We hope you all got home safely.

Guest Testimonials



Thanks for the feedback!…..

“Absolutely brilliant night. Thanks to the wonderful humans who helped with showing John the soldier the light and moving on from being trapped for over 70 years at the mansion I would like to think that the handful of individuals were able to show John the path he needed to find. A truly fantastic place to visit. Thank you Haunted Evenings for a brilliant night ☺️” 29.09.19 S.Gohil Source:facebook

Just a quick thank you to HE for an enjoyable evening at Woodchester Mansion.
Firstly, I found the customer service excellent following an enquiry for assistance, and, more importantly, the evening itself was enjoyable and fun.
All the crew were professional and welcoming and it was refreshing to not have crew pushing glasses round tables and finding other ways to cheat.
Would recommend”. 29.09.19 Tony Source:Google
