In the year 1961, a chilling article penned by the granddaughter of Thomas May, the last private dweller of Valence House, unveiled a haunting tale that still lingers in the air. Agnes de Valence, a name whispered with reverence and fear, is said to have met a tragic end, her life taken by cold steel. Her restless spirit has been glimpsed wandering the lawns, once even by a gardener who mistook her ghostly visage for a living daughter of the house. A dagger, unearthed from the murky depths of the moat, is believed to be the very instrument of her demise. Could it be the key to her eternal unrest?
But Agnes is not alone in her spectral existence at Valence House. The well-documented apparition of Eliza Luxmore, the mother-in-law of Thomas May who breathed her last within these walls in 1913, continues to make her presence known. A diminutive figure, clad in mourning black, she appears so lifelike that many have mistaken her for flesh and blood.
The house itself seems to breathe with the echoes of its haunted past. Reports of paranormal disturbances are numerous and varied, from thunderous noises that shake the very foundation to objects that move of their own accord. Unseen hands reach out to touch the living, and shadowy figures linger in doorways, watching and waiting. Will you be the next to witness these eerie occurrences? Join us at Valence House, where the veil between the living and the dead is thin, and the past refuses to rest.
