This stunning 15th Century Grade I listed Tudor Mansion is reputedly so haunted that it boasts it’s own set of “ghost cams”!. Dare to join the team for an intense overnight investigation at one of Manchester’s finest paranormal hotspots?!
History of Ordsall Hall
Ordsall Hall was home to the Radclyffe family for over 300 years. They first took ownership of the land and previous dwelling around 1335. The current building was built during the 15th Century to replace the original hall by order of Sir Alexander Radclyffe (High Sherriff of Lancaster). Ordsall Hall had further alterations and additions in the 17th Century, which included a brick house on the west side of the hall. In 1666, Ordsall Hall was the largest house in Salford and left the Radclyffe family in 1704. The Hall remained in occupation until 1871 when it then became a Working Men’s Club up until 1883 when purchased by Earl Egerton of Tatton who went on to use the hall to establish a clergy training school after he restored the hall in 1896 (adding a church in the north forecourt and a new servants wing on the south side which were both demolished in the 1960’s). During WWII it was used as a radio station and by 1972 opened to the public as a period house and local museum of History.
Haunted Ordsall Hall
Your overnight ghost hunt at Ordsall Hall will see you heading off in small groups in all directions using an array of different techniques in order to establish who still haunts here. It is believed the building is mostly haunted by Margaret Radclyffe who has been seen on many occasions in the Great Hall and Star Chamber. So much so that ghost cams have been set up in the most haunted rooms of this old Mansion. What will you experience overnight in one of Manchester’s oldest and most haunted buildings?!

Event Review / Spoiler!
Pretty much bang on 6 months after our last Haunted Evening at Ordsall Hall, we were back last night to investigate this stunning location nestled in amongst modern suburbia. With 2 different ages to the building guests spent an equal measure in both parts, with paranormal experiences reported mainly during traditional methods.
The ouija sessions, held up in the attic and 18th Century rooms, picked up (during 2 separate vigils) the presence of a little girl unbeknownst to either group. Having read through March’s review, this is evidently not the first time a girl spirit has been sensed.
Speaking of senses, lots of guests reported strange feelings, from guests unexplainably bursting into laughter, others feeling sick and discomfort, to more subtle feelings of being touched and various reports of cold spots lower down, suggesting perhaps children present. The name Elizabeth was picked up on by 3 separate guests and a male presence sensed once again in one of the bedrooms (same as last time) with an almighty shout heard via our recorders moments before we ended our final vigil.
Thank you to all of last nights guests who got fully involved in the vigils and helped bring the evidence forward. Manchester has been a busy weekend with 2 back to back events and we’ve enjoyed investigating both venues… next week we head further north as we revisit Edinburgh!
Dating back over 750 years, the site of Ordsall Hall, a magnificent Manor house that is now strangely shrouded in modern suburbia, was last nights Haunted Evenings home and a 3rd visit for H.E. Guests had the opportunity to investigate the stunning Great hall, attic space, kitchen and former bedrooms, which predate the 15th Century.
Cold spots (in this very warm location) were detected in random parts of the upper master bedroom with K2’s also triggering on command. EVP’s backed up that feeling of not being alone with one partly clear voice recording capturing the sentence “in the bedroom” (recording below) and 2 consecutive recordings suggesting we “get back”.
In the lower ground (now) bedroom area, dowsing rods for one group detected a male presence who reacted more so with the females in the group (believed to be (Sir) John) and who took a particular shine to one of the ladies!
In the kitchen area a strange figure was mapped out on our laptops SLS camera which again suggested the group were not alone, EMF meters also triggered in this area.
The great hall was where we conducted human pendulums, with all groups experiencing some level of activity. A male spirit called Edward, believed to be a Scottish soldier, was particularly strong for one group and for another, a man in robes (religious) was sensed. On enquiring afterwards with Ordsall Hall staff, the hall was once used as a religious training centre.
Up in the attic, for most of the evening at least, the level of activity was fairly low other than an initial “welcome” heard clearly on playback from one of our recorders (listen in to the recording below). However, group 3 had a phenomenal ouija session with a little spirit girl being detected. A feeling of sadness came over for some of the guests as the child communicated through yes/no and K2 meter responses. Through questioning, it was established that she wished to be reunited with her mother. As the spirit was encouraged to cross over, a K2 and Rempod surged with energy before the atmosphere changed back to normal once she had crossed. An emotional way for some to end their night at Ordsall Hall.
With cracking guests in all groups willing to take part in each experiment, last nights Haunted Evening was an absolute pleasure to be apart of, so thank you all for your enthusiasm and patience which truly helped get the results from last nights paranormal investigation.
Thank you for the feedback!
