GHOST HUNT - TOUR OF THE DAMNED WEEKEND
Fri, 30 Jun 2017, 19:00 – Sun, 2 Jul 2017, 11:00 BST
Haunted tours will take you on a journey that follows the devastation and harrowing locations left in the wake of the Black Death, whilst staying in a haunted hotel set within the beautiful Derbyshire and South Yorkshire countryside.
We embark on two nights of investigation at the notoriously haunted medieval Bolsover Castle and Mosborough Hall. With a history of hauntings at both locations dating back hundreds of years. With so many ghostly experiences we are sure this weekend will be one that terrifies and amazes even the bravest amongst you.
Your weekend begins on Friday as you check into Mosborough Hall Hotel, set within the picturesque village of Mosborough, originally a 12th century manor house with a very sinister and interesting medieval history relating to Henry VIII.
You will be greeted by the Haunted Tours team before retiring to the Old Medieval Hall for a delicious three course supper.
We will then make our way by car to the magnificent Bolsover Castle. This is a rare opportunity to investigate one of Britain’s most famous castles. We have the privilege of access to almost all of the castle including: the Great Hall, underground servant’s quarters, riding school, kitchens, bedrooms and royal quarters. In small groups we will make our way through Bolsover Castle and its grounds where the ancient Plague pits lie.
You will attempt to capture evidence of the ghosts and spirits that reside here, using the latest ghost hunting equipment alongside traditional methods including: table tipping, glass divination and Ouija board. Working as a group we will carry out vigils in the most active areas.
Previous ghost hunts at Bolsover Castle have left us in no doubt as to its scary and gruesome past.
Back at Mosborough Hall you will awake to breakfast, before heading by coach to the fascinating village of Eyam, famously known as the Plague Village. Surrounded by quaint little cottages, it’s hard to grasp that this picturesque place could have such a tragic story to tell. In 1665 the Plague arrived in Eyam and by 1666 it had claimed the lives of over 260 men, women and children. We will have a guided tour of the village with an insight into its past before a light lunch at the 17th century Miners Arms. You will have time to explore the village and its places of interest before we return to Mosborough Hall for some relaxation time before yet another three course supper in the Old Hall.
We are greatly looking forward to having the opportunity, after supper, to investigate Mosborough Hall and Hallows lane, if the weather allows, where numerous ghostly encounters have been witnessed. We will have access to the Lord Darcy suite, one of the hall’s most haunted bedrooms where the White Lady of Mosborough Hall is said to reside, following her brutal murder in that room in the 1600’s. Just walking into the dark oak panelled room with its four poster bed and original fireplace sends chills through the spine of even the most experienced ghost hunter.
On Sunday morning you will once again enjoy a delicious breakfast before heading home.
