Belgrave Hall, Leicester
1 February @ 8:00 pm - 2 February @ 1:00 am£39.00
Belgrave Hall – Built in the 18th Century.
In 1709 when the property was constructed, Belgrave was only a small village three miles from Leicester. Unless you walk round the corner from the main road, you would not see this magnificent building, hiding behind it own garden walls. Its easy to believe that this hall is haunted, all the rooms are cold and empty, there have been many reported sightings of ghostly apparitions walking through the house, and ghost spirits have been seen in the gardens… so who are these spirits? Come and join us as we attempt to find out.
We have similar haunted locations to visit, why not take a look at; Matlock Pavilion, Derbyshire
Belgrave Hall an amazing 18th century building and was home to several families throughout its time as a family dwelling.
Built in 1709 by Edmund Cradock, a Leicester hosiery merchant, the building was completed in 1713 unfortunely Edmund and his dear wife Ann died only two years after its completion.
The house, fronting onto Church Road, on a site adjacent to Belgrave Church. The house is a three-storey building, and you can still see today the lead rainwater heads with the Cradock family crest, some of which have a 1709 date and others with 1713.
Belgrave Hall has been home to many wealthy business men over the years, and all the owners have played a key part to the economic, social and charitable life of the community.
The family of John Ellis purchased Belgrave Hall in 1845 and were noted for their good work in the community. Ellis, a wealthy businessman, was responsible for bringing the railway to Leicester in 1833.
Belgrave Hall, Leicester - past events
Haunted Heritage have never investigated Belgrave Hall, however I can speak from my own personal experience.
Whist visiting the hall I had this unsettling feeling of being watched from the bottom of the hall to the top of the first flight of stairs, so strong was this feeling I stopped twice thinking somebody was behind me.. but no one was there.
I continued up the stairs and walked into a room known as the nursery, and out of my peripheral vision I saw a lady dart across the room and out of the door! Who is she?
There is a cold atmospheric feeling about this whole house. There is no question in my mind… I know its haunted!!
On our events guests will be able to use ghost detection equipment and participate with table tipping and should you wish ‘spirit board’
