Westholme House

The Haunting of Westholme House

Have you ever experienced things that go bump in the night? Do you believe the unexplained should remain unexplained? Follow the film crew as they spend the night in a haunted house.

Westholme House is an imposing 1840s Gothic house in the heart of Sleaford, Lincolnshire. It lies in the grounds of St Georges School of Technology and as you approach from the roadside the old house dominates the landscape. It's so spooky you can easily imagine a bolt of lightning in the sky with the distant sounds of wolfs howling!

The film crew did what all good film crews should do when investigating the paranormal, and with the help of local spiritualist medium, who only goes by her first name of Jenny, went to feel the vibrations in the low-lit corridors for themselves.

Ghostly spirits

Local people fearing their house is haunted turn to the Rev. John Patrick in the town.  He talks about the unusual happenings that he has heard about in Sleaford and where you can go to get your home exorcised!

The results from the overnight stay are truly unusual and following the making of this production every member of the film crew had the feeling that something or someone occupies the house when all others have left for the night!

I was actualy okay there until my second night i mean donnot get me wrong it seemed eerie but not until my second night was i frightened. I heard whispers in the room I was in and the covers on the bed went missing. After I ran outside because of the voices I threw up. It was an astounding night for me and my crew.
