Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House

Speke Hall

Liverpool, England

During the Protestant Reformation, tunnels were dug from this house to the nearby River Mersey, to allow priests to escape to Ireland via a boat if necessary. Even today, these holes are still visible. Allegedly, a woman, devastated by the actions of her philandering husband, killed herself and then her baby. Many people have reported feeling cold spots, while others have reportedly seen spirits of the agonized woman.

Actually the women is supposingly to be named Mary Beauclerk who married the a Lord Sydney Beauclerk who liked to gamble, after this he lost all their money and Mary suffered from mania after this news and threw her new born out of the window into the moat. With guilt of her actions she went into the kitchens and found a blade and killed herself. The witnesses have been in the window of the bedroom which is now known as the Tapestry room where she threw her infant out of.

I’ve visited Speke twice and was given a private tour by Roy Boardman who at the time was the curator. I am indeed thankful to Roy for taking the time during the Christmas season to show me this wonderful place. I remember him telling me about the girl throwing the baby out the window from the upper floor,etc. Anyway….as a Norris I was indeed captivated by this place and hold it in great reverence, and maybe someday I might spend a night or weekend eh? heh.

many years ago I went for a walk on the edge of the grounds(my friends were still having lunch elsewhere) I came across a pond and some trees,and there,the other side of the pond,I saw a group of men,women and children ,dressed in what appeared to be Puritan dress,I rattled off a number of shots…my camera in those days was an instematic…needless to say when I got the photos developed all that turned out was the pond and trees but no entities as a result no one believed me…still happy days at Speke hall.

My wife and I visited Speke Hall today, August 17th 2013, and whilst walking around on the recommended route my wife was walking slightly ahead of me and had noticed something. she remained looking out towards the (two)back doors but also asked me to tell her what it was she could see. Neither of could understand what we saw. We both witnessed the same, a vapour apparently, slowly swirrling, about three feet from us facing the back door adjoining the Great Hall. It seemed a stable environment, no draughts, no hot or cold, no dust and no possible sources of such a vapour or mist eg. damp or other.There was no smell at all either – we checked – e.g. cigarette smoke say if someone had been there and had smoked (against National Trust policy of course. There was no-one in the vicinity. This phenomenon lasted for a few seconds in front of us and then simply disappeared. Neither of us have ever seen anything like this before or can explain how or what happened here.This is an account from two adults 50+ and speaking for myself I am level headed and sensible and have been a sceptic but seek to be open minded about’ghosts’ and ‘spirits’ and the like. It was absolutely amazing and this is a true account.
