Chingle Hall

Many believe Chingle Hall to be the most haunted house in England, but still stay the night...

Many believe Chingle Hall at Goosnargh to be the most haunted house in England.

Built by Adam de Singleton in 1260, it has passed through various families including the Singletons and Walls.

Father John Wall, born in the Hall in the 17th century, was hanged for heresy in Worcester in 1679. His head was taken to France but is believed to have eventually been brought back and buried at the Hall.

It is said that if it is ever found then the hauntings will stop. Visitors have reported noises, apparitions and objects being moved. The most haunted room is the bedroom of Eleanor Singleton who was murdered at the hall.
