Woodchester Mansion, a fantastic 9th Century Victorian Gothic Masterpiece mysteriously abandoned mid-construction in 1873, is world famous for being haunted by a variety of spectral beings. The first recorded settlement in Woodchester goes as far back as the Roman times, although local lore has mentioon of earlier pagan habitation.
Objects going missing and reappearing in a new location in the building for no reason what so ever, incarnate voices are said to be heard on many occasions and the sound of young ghostly children playing in the building too are also heard.
A headless horseman is also reported to have been seen as well as a floating coffin that eerily floats above one of the lakes; the body in the coffin is as legend would have it that of a monk or priest who committed suicide. Another spectral manifestation is that of big black dog which is said to be an omen of death (Please note that we do not have access to the grounds during the event due to restrictions laid down by The National Trust).
Also a spirit of a gentleman has been witnessed in his night shirt who was violently savaged alive by his own dogs. A phantom coach and horses with it’s coachmen sat on top of the coach are said to drive through the entrance gates towards the park, but more sinisterly there is the infamous tale of the ‘ragged dwarf’, first witnessed by the local Reverend in 1904, who vowed never to set foot in the grounds of Woodchester mansion ever again.
Among the ghostly inhabitants of the eerie mansion include the lost soul of the white lady who is said to float off the ground on the second floor, apparitions of Second World War American soldiers are noted since the mansions grounds were used in the run up to the d-day landings. These ghostly apparitions are also accompanied with 1940s music. A tall well dressed Victorian gentleman is seen floating in and around the chapel, in the cellars dark shadows are seen to dart in all directions and loud and aggressive banging and tapping’s are regular occurrences in these mysterious cellars.
