Ghost Hunts at Walton Hall, Warrington

Join Haunted Rooms for a thrilling night of real ghost hunting at one of the most haunted buildings in Cheshire

Do you have what it takes to investigate this Victorian country house in the dead of night? A location where reports of a dark male presence and the sighting of a female apparition are common.

The male presence is described as malevolent and makes himself known by tightening the throats of unsuspecting guests. His shadow creeps around the stately home, accompanied by a heavy feeling, forcing guests to leave the area.

The female presence is believed to be that of Lady Daresbury, the wife of the former owner of the hall, Gibert Greenhall. Her spirit has been seen around the main staircase area, completely unaware of any person around her.

The spirit of a little girl is also keen to make herself known to female guests in particular. Wanting to hold their hands for comfort as she wanders aimlessly, looking for her mother.

Spots will fill up quickly for this one, so hurry and book now!

Deposits are available for just £20 per person.

The house was built between 1836-1838 by Sir Gilbert Greenall, the grandson of Thomas Greenall, the famous brewer from St Helens.

The family had built up a huge wealth over the years and purchased the grounds on which Walton Hall sits in 1812.

It was supposedly built by the architect Edmund Sharpe of Lancaster, who later became famous for the Gothic architectural revival in Victorian Britain.

From 1869-70 several extensions were completed, including offices, a billiards room, and the striking clocktower that you see today.

It was Sir Gilbert’s son (also Gilbert) who transformed the Walton Hall from a family estate to the stunning one you see today.

More commonly known as Lord Daresbury, he made the estate into a model of agricultural excellence. Such was the beauty of the gardens and the hall, Lord and Lady Daresbury opened them to the public in 1930, with up to 45,000 people visiting on open days.

In 1941 the hall and grounds were purchased by Warrington Borough Council and were opened to officers and troops during World War II.

After the war ended in Europe on 8th May 1945, the hall and its gardens were opened to the public 11 days later on 19th May.

The hall and gardens remain open to the public today, attracting over 330,000 a year from all over the North West and beyond.
