16 October, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 17 October, 2021 @ 1:00 am

Derby Ghost Hunt Pickford House

Our Ghost Hunt at the amazing  Pickford’s House, Derby

Hidden amongst the gorgeous old buildings and cobbled pavement of Friar Gate sits Pickford’s House, built by the Georgian architect Joseph Pickford who built it as his family home in 1770.

Who still resides here?  Whose spirits remain within its walls? 

The history of this house is vast! from architects, surgeons and politicians who will we make contact with?

The museum show aspects of domestic life from the 18th to the 20th centuries, Pickford’s House shows the contrast between the master and the servant, the grandeur of Georgian architecture and the changes that occurred in the house over its 250-year life

So why not join us on our ghost hunt at Pickford’s House?

Staff that work here have experienced many unexplained things, doors that open and close on there own, footsteps in empty corridors and ghost sighting include a small boy peering out the windows and a former gardener and servant still carrying out their duties!

What happens when the lights go out? 

The haunted Heritage team have caught amazing EVPs of disembodied voices, and servant bells ring that have been disconnected? Why do the spirits still linger here?

When Pickford died he left the house to Reverend Joseph Pickford who had the house extended and divided into two properties.. He left the house to his cousin William Pickford in his will in 1844. William promptly mortgaged the house and by 1850 it was sold to William Evans

His son Sir Thomas William Evans sold it in 1879 to Frederick Ward who sold it to William Curgenven, the first of a number of surgeons to own it.

In 1977 it was upgraded from Grade II to Grade I It was purchased in 1982 by Derby City Council. Pickford’s House has been run by Derby Museums Trust since October 2012.
