Venue History

The present building was built in 1545 and though there appears to be no written link between it and the “de Heskin” family (of whom there is little record), there is evidence to link it with some of the best known names in English history.

In 1506 the lands (with others) were bought by Edmund Dudley, a Minister of Henry VIII who was later executed for treason, the land passed to his widow Elizabeth and through her to their son John Dudley Earl of Northumberland. He followed in his fathers’ footsteps and was executed for treason by Queen Mary. His son, Robert Dudley, is well known for his being a favourite of Elizabeth I.

The Dudley family misfortune benefitted the Seymours who owned the land next. Mary, the widow of Sir Thomas Seymour (father of Jane Seymour (wife of Henry VIII)) sold it to a Richard Molyneux in 1556.

The hall changed many hands over many years until 1885 when it was purchased by Lord & Lady Lilford, the last people to occupy the hall, as a home. She was an ex-dancer and actress and on their divorce in 1969 the Hall went to her as part of their divorce settlement. Occupation has been commercial ever since and this present day is a centre of antiques.

Reported Ghosts

Heskin Hall has many reports of paranormal activity and it’s no wonder having been a centre of activity in the English Civil War with several battles taking place nearby, Lancashire saw some of the bloodiest fighting in the country; there is history of executions and murder. Two ghosts are said to haunt the hall – that of a young Roman Catholic girl who was hanged by a priest as proof of his conversion to Protestantism, however this did not convince Cromwell’s soldiers and so they hung the priest on the same spot. Will you encounter the spirits of these lost souls on your ghost hunt at Heskin Hall?

Being a centre for antiques at this current day there are many creepy artefacts all over the building including clowns and Annabelle-like dolls, there have been reports of these items being moved, footsteps and doors closing when no one is around.

The last owners of Heskin Hall, Lord and Lady Lilford had guests flee in terror after witnessing ghostly activity in the hall. Staff members to this day have reported various strange occurrences in the hall, with one witnessing a plate completely fly off from a solid wood dresser in plain sight and smash on the floor, yet all the other crockery on the dresser did not move.
