Want to spend the night in a haunted house?

In a few weeks we’ll be coming over all Most Haunted and going ghost hunting at Ordsall Hall. Do you and a friend want to join us?

Published on October 2nd 2006.

Want to spend the night in a haunted house?

There’s something strange in the neighbourhood.

There have been bumps in the night and ghostly sightings at Salford’s Ordsall Hall. Well, the Hall has been there for over 800 years, so there’s bound to be some spirits rattling around.

There have been plenty of unexplained occurrences at the hall over the years, so much so that the Most Haunted team made Ordsall Hall the focus of one of their investigations. Ghosts to have been spotted at Ordsall Hall include a White Lady - possibly the heartbroken Tudor lady Margaret Radcliffe, and a spooky monk who has been spotted in the grounds. There have also been unexplained footsteps and strange dragging noises coming from under the stairs, and mysterious orb-like apparitions.

Halloween’s coming up and we, being the curious (or stupid) souls that we are, want to investigate. So on Saturday 21st October we are going to hold an all night ghost vigil at Ordsall Hall. We’ll arrive there late evening, and then stay up all night, exploring different parts of the house and conducting séances to attempt to connect with the spirits.

We have some paranormal investigators enlisted to help out with their ghost hunting equipment, as well as some spiritual mediums who will conduct the séances.

Do you fancy coming with us? We have some spare places, and we’d like to bring along five readers and their guests. If you would like to be in with a chance of winning a place on the night, fill in the form below and let us know why you want to come.

Boring, sensible bit…
Whether you’re a cynic who would like to be proved wrong or a believer who would like to have a spooky experience, we only want to take people who are genuinely interested in the paranormal. It will be a long night with a lot of sitting around in dark rooms waiting for things to happen, so you need to be committed.

If you think that you are brave enough to spend the night in a haunted house, and committed enough to stay up all night in the name of research, then we’d love to have you.

I ain’t afraid of no ghost.
