Chingle Hall

Chingle Hall in Lancashire is the oldest brick house in Britain and was built in 1260 in the shape of a cross. Although many houses claim to be 'the most haunted in England', it would Chingle Hallseem that Chingle Hall may well be that place.

The house is believed to be the birthplace of John Wall, a priest who became a Roman Catholic martyr. He was executed in 1679 and his head is thought to be buried at the house. It is his ghost that is said to haunt the Hall and its grounds. On many occasions, a monk-like figure has been seen at a window or appearing in the downstairs rooms praying. He has also been seen melting into walls in the famous Priest's Room.

Mysterious knocks and bangs have been heard all over the house, door latches have been seen moving up and down of their own accord, objects have moved without anyone touching them, footsteps have been heard making their way around the house and a cold chill has been felt in many of the rooms.

Most of the psychic phenomena seems to be centered around the Priest's Room and perhaps the most bizarre incident occurred when a guest who was at the house heard bricks being moved in there. When he went in to investigate, he looked through the priests hole and there, in front of him, was part of a human hand moving one of the bricks!
