Halloween Ghost Hunt Gresley Old Hall | Wednesday 31st October 2018


Ghost Hunt Gresley Old Hall | Derby

Haunted Evenings, the first ever ghost hunting company to offer public ghost hunt events at the incredibly eerie Gresley Old Hall, are excited to announce that we are back once again on Halloween night to show budding ghost hunters, what really does happen here in this haunted building!
As you head upstairs from the comforts of the baseroom, it feels like a totally different building, rooms are back to bare plaster and in serious need of repair, windows are missing, some boarded up, there’s holes in the roof and resident pigeons up in the rafters. It’s a unique location and often takes guests by surprise as they explore the upper floors and discover just how raw this place has become over time but one things for sure, it makes for the perfect ghost hunting setting!

History of Gresley Old Hall

Gresley Old Hall, a 17th Century Grade II listed building, situated near Swadlincote, was built on the site of a Priory (Old Gresley Priory 1135-1140). Built in 1734, it replaced the original hall built in 1556!. With the land holding so much history and the current Gresley Old Hall having an intriguing past all of its own, there is little question that this makes for a gem of a spooky location. The middle floor has 6 back to bare bones rooms to investigate, the eerie atmosphere here is amazing. With haunted activity captured in every room… The attic is the place to be if you fancy the challenge of a lone vigil?!

Paranormal Activity at Gresley Hall

We’ve experienced plenty of paranormal activity here from strong EVP’s, action on the Ouija board and footsteps heard on the landing going upstairs to the attic. One guest about jumped out of her skin when something shouted in her ear through the amplified DVR device! Every room seems to have captured evidence and the attic definitely seems to be the place to try out experiments. Not only have we experienced strange happenings using traditional techniques, our extensive equipment seems to be triggered here. Why not have a go at using all the latest equipment and test your bravery by wandering off with the kit and sensing first hand, just what ghost hunting in a haunted location really feels like?!
