Ghost Hunt UK return to this amazing location!!!
Building work for Manor Street School was completed in 1862, partly on the site of the 1820 British School and on land, originally part of Manor Farm, which over the years had passed through various hands before finally being purchased by the silk manufacturer George Courtauld
In 1890 Manor Street School was a Board School for 500 children, with an average attendance of 130 boys, 130 girls and 95 infants. In 1897 a separate building was added for the infants.
During World War II many evacuees and teachers came to Braintree, and some were allocated Manor Street as their wartime school. During this time air raid shelters were built on the playground area opposite. The Museum authentically maintains one of the original Victorian classrooms which is frequently brought to life with role-playing school visits.
Many staff have reported strange goings on. Shadows have been seen peeking out of the doors. The classroom has been known to have the sounds of children laughing and doors closing by themselves As Ghost Hunt UK take to this fantastic location what will we uncover?
