The History and Sightings!!
This is very popular location, so much so that it gets booked up very quickly. Not only with the venue its self but with most paranormal groups.
Mentioned in the doomsday book in 1086, it is hard to believe that Bolling Hall stands tucked away in a picturesque corner less than a mile from a busy city centre.
This magnificent stone house has survived many owners and bloody wars.
During the Civil War the household supported the Royalist cause, and the house provided a stronghold during the ‘siege of Bradford’.
The oldest part of the building is a late-medieval tower, now used as the entrance, at the southern end of the garden front.
Many additions have been made to the house over the years but none of these were designed to harmonize with the earlier work.
Bolling Hall therefore exhibits an inspiring mixture of styles with layer upon layer of intriguing history. But who still lingers within the walls of Bolling Hall.
There are many sightings at the Hall that are too numerous to list, including female voice's, crying babies and dragging noises that are often heard throughout the hall.
A group of Parliamentarian Officers have been seen approaching from the east section of the grounds. Although they’re sudden disappearance cannot be explained.
A lady in 1960's clothing was seen sitting in the exhibit room in a chair that has been in the same position for several years.
On one occasion a museum guide kindly asked this lady to leave as it was closing time and the lady got up and walked out through the wall.
We had quite a night on our last visit to Bolling Hall and felt we needed to return.
