Ghost Hunt UK go to this exciting new location that is Abington Park Museum
Standing in the middle of Northampton’s oldest park, Abington Park Museum is a Tudor Manor house dating back to 1485. The building has seen several different uses over the years, including a domestic residence, asylum, and museum.
Abington Abbey Asylum closed its doors in 1892, and the manor house and park surrounding it were given to the people of Northampton. The building was re-opened as a museum, and gradually developed into what we see today.
The museum is a disorientating maze of rooms and corridors, with a very eerie, unsettling atmosphere. Precisely who haunts the building is a mystery – very few investigations have been carried out at this location in the past and present – so you could step into the unknown and uncover the hidden secrets of this daunting old former hospital.
Various sightings and occurrences have been reported by both staff and visitors, including dark shadows and figures that have been sighted in various areas of the building, disembodied footsteps and voices coming from behind a locked door, and feelings of sadness, anger, and distress.
Visitors have also reported the feeling of being watched, and some have felt a presence standing close to them, even though they have been alone at the time. A member of staff was left terrified after having their arm grabbed by an unseen hand whilst locking up.
Conditions in the asylum are not believed to have been overly cruel or unpleasant, however it has been reported that during this time two patients hung themselves. Over the years, guests have reported feelings of great sadness and distress in the area where the bodies were discovered.
