Birmingham Yew Tree Hall in Moseley, Ghost Hunt
Yew Tree Hall, also known as Highbury Hall, is located only three miles outside of Birmingham’s city centre and boasts a beautiful countryside setting.
The Rt. Hon. Joseph Chamberlain, MP for the Birmingham area, commissioned this beautiful house in 1878. This was his family home and residence in Birmingham which he aptly named Highbury Hall after the area of London where he grew up as a child.
Whose spirits have been seen and heard here?
Over the years, many people who have worked at the house have reported seeing ghostly apparitions, have heard voices, crying, footsteps and unexplained knocking sounds. One in particular has been the sight of a lady and a child walking the grounds.
People also often get the sense that they are being watched or followed around the house, making them feel nervous or uncomfortable.

Highbury Hall History
History. Yew Tree (Highbury Hall) was built in 1878-9 for the MP Joseph Chamberlain. From 1888, Highbury was the setting for large social and political gatherings. The greater part of Highbury’s grounds was made a public park soon after 1932.
Highbury ceased to be a family home after Joseph Chamberlain’s death in 1914 and in May 1915 it became an Auxiliary Hospital for treating wounded soldiers, particularly orthopaedic cases.
During World War I, Highbury Hall was used as a hospital annex and home for disabled soldiers. It was given to trustees in 1919 by his elder son, Austen Chamberlain, and it then passed to the Corporation of Birmingham in 1932, when it was used as a home for elderly women.
