Come and join Visage Paranormal as we investigate Bolling Hall in Bradford, West Yorkshire.
Bolling Hall is steeped in history and is one of the oldest buildings in Bradford. The ealiest known reference was in 1086 in the Domesday Book. By 1316 Bolling Hall was home to William Bolling and was owned by the Bolling family until the 15th century. Since then it has changed hands numerous times until 1912 when it was presented to the Bradford Corporation. It was opened as a museum in 1915 and has been a museum mainstay ever since.
The hall was prominently a royalist house during the civil war in 1643, in fact the first ever ghost sighting ever recorded was reportedly to have been in Bolling Hall when the head of the Royalist Army, which happened to be the Earl of Newcastle, was woken during the night by the sensation of his bedclothes being pulled from him. At the side of his bed stood the ghostly figure of a woman, wringing her hands and sobbing, Pity Poor Bradford. The Earl was shaken by what he had seen. The next day the Earl attacked Bradford, but only 10 deaths were recorded.
Some of the activity reported at Bolling Hall include a baby that can be heard crying all around the hall and ladies voices can be heard. There have been some who have experienced a stong feeling of being watched in the Blue Room, and there is also a gentleman often seen by the fireplace, this gentleman is always happy to communicate with ghost hunters.
