Local Builder Claims Hauntings at Crowley Hall

By: Brendan Moore

A local property developer has had to halt works on the development at Crowley Hall after claims of paranormal occurrences.

Steven Newton of Manchester, had recently bought Crowley Hall and intended to turn it into housing. It had previously been reported that his team of workers had found bones hidden behind a fireplace, enough for four human bodies. It was just after this finding that the haunting supposedly began.

"It has reached a point where some of the occurrences have got so bad, that the builders I brought in have downed tools, and refused to come back. Obviously rumours spread and I am finding it hard to get workers in."

An anonymous builder told reported that he had been working in one of the rooms, when his toolbox flew across the room and smashed against the wall. One of the builders was physically pushed over, almost down a flight of stairs. It was when one of the builders was apparently bitten by a suggested presence, that work couldn't continue at Crowley Hall. Steven in now in a position where he has had to call in a team of paranormal investigators.

"I called the team of investigators after the police told me they could do nothing about these incidents. I think they thought me and my builders were mad or making the whole story up."

Crowley Hall was built in the late nineteenth century and has had its share of controversy over the years. Built as a hospital, then later becoming a mental asylum, it ceased serving this purpose when its founder, Dr. Bernard Leys, died of a heart attack while performing an operation on one of his patients. After this incident, rumours emerged about how Dr. Leys was carrying out unsanctioned tests his patients. This has never been verified, due to a fire that broke out at the Hall and destroying all of his notes and records.

Crowley Hall was left abandoned for many years, later to re-open as a children's hospital in 1970. During this time, there were many paranormal incidents recorded. It has been suggested that a spiritual medium was brought to the hall to cleanse it, and remove the evil spirits. Paranormal activity seemed to cease after this. Eventually, a bigger hospital was opened nearby, and all the patients were moved there and the hall closed down once again.

Steven purchased the hall in 2005, and wasn't really a believer in the paranormal until now. He hopes that if the investigators can help to explain what's going on there, then he might be able to understand a little bit more of the afterlife, and continue with the work.

"All I want is to know what is exactly going on in that place, and hopefully it will stop me feeling like I am going mad."
