Ghosts of The Village
There have been many sightings at The Village. Some of the ghosts that have been picked up here are a Mr Merryweather who was the owner of the Malt Houses until his death in 1835. He has been seen in the Village by volunteers who were painting here before its reopening in 2013. The CCTV footage shows nobody was there but they all swore that they saw the figure of a man. Many psychics have also picked up on the name Merryweather which was not well documented. There has also been mention of the name Catherine who has been picked up on by many groups during investigations here. She is thought to have been murdered at The Village along with her child. Many people have heard the sounds of a baby crying in the lower rooms.
There is also a piano which plays on its own, the owners say that this piano was there when they purchased the building.
One other group of spirits who appear to stick together are said to be those of prisoners who were held captive in secret rooms here. These males seem to be very unhappy and often make their presence felt during ghost hunts at The Village.
History of The Village
As discussed, The Village could understandably be renamed as the Village of The Damned. It is a graded building set in the heart of Mansfield, Nottinghamshire. Laying abandoned for over a decade this sinister looking building was once a slaughter house and then a Malt House during the 1800’s. The Village has become one of the UK’s favourite ghost hunting haunts and has provided ghost hunters with overwhelming evidence of the ghosts and spirits that reside here.
Some of the evidence captured here has been such that many people have experienced ghostly activity during their time here. The Group, Haunted Events UK, have run many successful overnight ghost hunts here over a period of time. They are kindly allowing other groups to investigate in our attempts to gain evidence of the paranormal activity that occurs here.
