Is Crowley Hall really Haunted?   
by Brendan Moore

Work at Crowley Hall in England has had to be halted after suggested paranormal activity has taken place there.

Steven Newton of Manchester, UK had recently purchased Crowley Hall intending to turn it into flats and had begun work in early 2006. It had previously been reported in the newspapers that his team of workers found enough bones for four human bodies, hidden in an alcove behind a fireplace. Steven claims it was just after this that the haunting began.

"It has reached the point where some of these incidents that are happening here, have got so bad, that the builders have stopped work, and are refusing to come back to the hall. I am finding it very hard to get builders willing to work here."

One of the workers, who wanted to remain anonymous, told us that he had been working on replacing some flooring, when his toolbox flew across the room and smashed against the wall. He also told us of occasions when some of the other workers were physically pushed, on one occasion, almost down a flight of stairs. It was when one of the workers was bitten by an unseen force, that they felt they couldn't continue to work there any longer. This has left Steven in a position where he has had to call in expert help.

"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, built in the late nineteenth century, has had it's fair share of controversy over the years. Originally built to operate as a hospital, then mental asylum, it ceased serving this purpose when its founder, Dr. Bernard Leys, died of a heart attack during an operation. It was after this incident that rumours surfaced of Dr. Leys carrying out unsanctioned tests on inmates. This has never been verified, due to a fire that broke out at the Hall, destroying all of Dr. Leys' notes and records.

The hall lay empty for a number of years, before re-opening as a childrens hospital during the seventies. There are a number of occurrences on record of paranormal happenings during this time. It has also been reported that the paranormal activity got so bad, that a medium was called in to cleanse the hospital of spirits. Once again, this cannot be verified, although no further reports of paranormal activity have been reported after this supposed cleansing. The hospital was closed when a bigger hospital was built, and the children were moved there.

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 is, what is going at Crowley Hall. Hopefully it'll stop me feeling as though I am losing my mind."
