A cherished local theatre and arts centre, the Lawrence Batley Theatre was originally built in 1819 as a Methodist chapel and at one point it was the largest Weslyan Mission in the world, with a capacity of over 100. The undercroft—now the Cellar Theatre—served as a crypt for the chapel between 1819 and 1855. 84 bodies were interred here and forgotten about until the 1970s, when it they were exhumed with great care and secrecy lest infectious diseases such tuberculosis or typhoid had survived amongst the remains.
Needless to say, staff at the theatre have reported a great deal of strange phenomena from the former crypt: locked doors open of their own accord; the house-lights flash on and off even though the control desk is unmanned; and an apparition of figure dressed in Victorian dress is sometimes seen walking through the corridors long after the building has closed for the night
