Ghost Hunt at Leeds Industrial Museum

Ghost Hunt at Leeds Industrial Museum


Join the UK Ghost Nights crew on a late night ghost hunt in Leeds at what was once the largest woollen mill in the world. A place that has seen many tragic accidents and deaths of all ages. It is thought that some of these poor souls still remain ......

Many have claimed to have witnessed the spirits of several young boys, or possibly the same one who is rather active. The sounds of crying from what seem to be from a young boy have been heard within the upper machinery room, along with small shadowy figures which seem to slip out of view as soon as you lay eyes on them.

The mill is also home to what can only be described as a Poltergeist, with reports from visitors and staff alike about being touched, sometimes forcibly shoved by unseen hands... This activity doesn't seem to be caused by one spirit, as some of the activity is quite negative, such as the shoving or throwing objects across rooms, but rather by a group of spirits. People in tour groups often claim to feel pulling at the bottom of their coats, as if a small child were trying to get their attention.
Apart from this there's a few other claims which seem to be spread all throughout the building, with another of the most commonly encountered ghosts being that of a woman dressed all in black, who is believed to be looking for her child who died working at the mill.
