Ghost Hunt Northampton – Abington Museum

10 September @ 8:00 pm - 11 September @ 1:00 am

Northampton Ghost Hunt at Abington Museum

Ghost Hunt Northampton

Come an join us at the fantastic Abington Park Museum.

The original manor house was the family home of John Hall, his wife Susanna and their daughter Elizabeth.  Elizabeth was the granddaughter of William Shakespeare.  Now, a museum, this venue should be on your bucket list, for a very good reason!

Do Susanna and Elizabeth still reside here? Did Shakespeare himself ever visit and does his spirit roam the rooms of this beautiful building?

During its long history, Abington has not only seen a number of families who considered this their home, but has also been a working farm and an asylum for the mentally ill… Question we need to ask, have they left? Ghostly sightings have been seen by staff and visitors to this museum.

 If the walls could talk, what would secrets would they tell?  Are there any patients still here, waiting to tell their stories?

Wander through the rooms here and take a trip back in time.  Delve into the past of this historic location and embrace the atmosphere…

So, Who still haunts the amazing location ?  Who are the ghosts seen wandering the grounds?

With so much history, this is the ideal location for a paranormal investigation.  And we would love you to join us…

Why not come along to our ghost hunt at Abington Park Museum and see who you will encounter?

Experience this magnificent place for yourself and be a part of discovering the people who once considered Abington their home. For a paranormal investigation, it doesn’t get much better than this!

Guests must be 18 years and over to attend this event

The History of Abington Manor

If you love history then you will love this location.

The Manor House would have been at the centre of the village listed in the Domesday Book.

The name Abington is Saxon and probably means Ab’s farm and was definitely a settlement at the time of Domesday.

The manor house we see today was built in the 15th Century and was home to Shakespeare’s last remaining relative, his granddaughter Elizabeth Bernard who is buried at the church not far away.

In 1669, vast parts of the original Manor House were demolished to make way for a larger, more lavish extension, retaining of course, the Great Hall and Oak Room.

In 1845, Abington Manor was sold to a Londoner who leased out the Manor to Dr Octavius Pritchard who used the property as a mental asylum. It remained as an asylum until 1892. Conditions in the asylum are not believed to have been overly cruel or unpleasant, however it has been reported that during this time two patients hung themselves. The property further exchanged hands in 1897 when it was given to the people of Northampton. It has remained as a museum until present day.
