Hinchingbrooke House is now a statley home in Huntingdom Cambridgeshire.The house was built around an 11th-century.it passed into the hands of the Cromwell family, and its changed hands over the years.
There was a serious fire in 1830 and the house was restored. It was further restored in 1894 and again in the 1960s. During the most recent restoration the entrance to the chapter house was discovered, but otherwise little of the medieval fabric is visible.
In 1970, it became part of housing the 6th form. Hinchingbrooke School was formerly Huntingdon Grammar School.
The ghost of the vengeful Huntingdon Nun whose skeleton was discovered under a staircase.”Apparitions of nuns have frequently been reported here, always at the rear of the property. This is the area which still contains remnants and features from the old priory”
Since the 1960s, the story of the terrifying spirit of a nun has garnered much attention from paranormal investigators and the media, resulting in many accounts of sightings and reports of mysterious paranormal activity. It has even lived up to its reputation as a haunted location.
Now part of Hinchingbrooke School’s sixth form college, the history of the building is responsible for one of the county’s spookiest ghost stories – the murdered nun that jumps out at drivers.
The building originated as an 11th-century Benedictine convent. Legend goes that a nun, who once lived in Hinchingbrooke House, had a secret love-affair with a monk. But once the relationship was discovered and she possibly became pregnant, they were both executed.
Subsequently, the surrounding area is said to be haunted by the nun’s vengeful spirit. The nearby bridge over Alconbury Brook, called ‘Nun’s Bridge’, is supposedly haunted by this nun. She steps out in front of oncoming cars, causing them to swerve out of the way in fright.
Some have reported that the nun was accompanied by a ghost which resembles a nurse, whilst others claim to have seen three ghostly crashed cars that silently burn at night. Sightings were first reported by a couple in 1965, but subsequent reports have arisen since then.
The skeletons of a man and a woman were discovered under a staircase in the house, believed to be from 994-1050AD. The female’s skeleton showed signs of being pregnant, so many believe that they are the remains of the nun and the monk who had the discovered love affair.
