Ghost Hunt Gresley Old Hall Swadlincote Haunted Heritage

Ghost Hunt Gresley Old Hall. This venue has been popular with ghost hunters for years and with very good reason

One of the oldest building in South Derbyshire it dates ack to the 15th Century. The hall is a grade II listed building situated in the village of Church Gresley.

The house is reputed to have been built in 1556 for Sir Christopher Alleyn out of the materials of the demolished Gresley Priory, but the only survival of the 16th century house is a huge square chimneystack, once external but now encased in brick and within the house

Site of a former priory

In the mid 18th century the house had an estate of 600 acres and was set in a fenced park, but in 1789 the house was said to be ‘hastening fast to decay’ and the property was subsequently dismembered for coal mining, the house tenanted as a farm and the outbuildings converted for use as a pottery in 1794. In 1895, when the mining had destroyed too much of the estate for farming to be viable, it was converted into tenements. It then lay derelict for some time before being purchased by a Miners’ Welfare club, which employed Vernon Brice ARIBA to make it habitable in 1953. The house now stands in a remnant of the former park, once again derelict!
