Scarborough's Paranormal Society to Reveal Results of Investigations into 'Ghosts of Woodend.'

Ghosts of Woodend

Could Woodend be Scarborough's most haunted building? You'll have the chance to find out on October 29th when Scarborough's Paranormal Society reveal the results of their investigations into the 'Ghosts of Woodend.'

Alex Brown of the Scarborough Paranormal Society said:

"We've taken tape recorders and listening equipment into Woodend and the sounds we've recorded through the night are startling, to say the least."

Woodend - in the Crescent, Scarborough - was built in 1835 and was famously the home of Sir George and Lady Ida Sitwell and their three children, before becoming the town's Natural History Museum and latterly Woodend Creative Workspace.

Woodend Director Andrew Clay said:

"Alex and his team could have confirmed what many of us in the building have long suspected. There have always been tales of a lady in red gliding down the stairs, and supposedly the ghost of a little boy can be seen just outside the library. And there are stories of ghostly parrots in the conservatory and clattering pans in the old kitchens."

The Paranormal Society are continuing with their investigations before the presentation on the evening of Thursday 29th October - appropriately, just two days before Halloween.

Alex added:

"People will be amazed when we play the recordings. Edith Sitwell reported her own supernatural experiences while she was living at Woodend, and we'll be taking recordings in what we believe was her bedroom."

But do the 'ghosts' worry any of Woodend's tenants? The building is currently home to over 100 creative professionals with Coventry University's Scarborough team also moving into offices in the building.

Local writer Mark Richards said:

"Woodend's a fantastic place to have an office, but there have been a few times when I've been on my own in the building late at night. Let's just say I'm pleased when I make it to my car..."

Ghosts of Woodend takes place on 29th October at 7pm. Tickets cost £10 and include presentation, tour and refreshments. Call 01723 384500 or email
