Chingle hall is said to be one of the most haunted homes in England. The current owners live in the home and live with the many ghosts that reside at chingle hall they don’t seem to have a problem with the ghostly goings on and continue to invite people to spend the night.
There is one room in the house that holds a ghost of a young woman called Eleanor, it was said that she had been held a prisoner in her room for over twelve years, and died at the age of twenty.
People that entered her room have experienced their clothes being tugged, and an overwhelming feelings of emotion. Some have calmed to have felt a sensation of their hand being held.
The most of the strange goings on in this room is the potent smell of lavender every one that enters Eleanor’s room has had this experience. All of this and more continues to this day at Chingle hall.
The Woodplumpton witch.
A large boulder with a plaque that reads The grave of Meg Shelton, is found in a churchyard called St Ann’s
the grave is said to hold a local witch from the late seventeenth century. Meg was nicknamed the flying hag, she was blamed for all kinds of things that went wrong in the village.
The story goes she was killed when a barrel crushed her up against a wall. The strange thing was the boulder was placed over the top of her grave so she could not get out. The worse thing was yet to come was the way, Meg was buried, poor Meg was placed in her final resting place like a fence post as well as being put there head down! The people of her village lived in fear of Meg and at the time they thought it was a good idea to do this, because they thought if she tried to get out she would be facing the wrong way, and the boulder was for extra safety in their eyes.
At the time it was a good idea, until strange things started happening. Milk was being stolen from cattle a lone fox was blamed for the killings of many chickens. You might not think this has anything to do with Meg but these are the things she was blamed for when she was alive.
