Ghosts of North East England

NORTHUMBERLAND, NORTH EAST ENGLAND

LORD CREWE ARMS
Blanchland
Northumberland
The female phantom who was, at one time, visible rather infrequently in his former manor house, seems now to haunt only by producing ` a feeling of her presence`. She is thought to be Dorothy Forster but there were two such ladies associated with the building. Guests wishing to see the haunted area have to pass through a huge doorway at the top of a stone stairway. This door was the original inn sign. The British Travel Association published a report in 1968 of the experienced of a young Canadian girl who stayed in the haunted bedroom, who, like some before and several since, have felt an inexplicable `thumb` on the bottom of the bed.

SEATON DELAVAL HALL
Seaton Sluice
Near Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Northumberland
Seen at least twice in the last 20 years in this splendid baroque house is the ghost of a slender woman in a grey dress. Observed standing at one of the windows in the West Wing, she is thought to be a woman who is waiting the return of her lover but little else is known about her.

TYNE AND WEAR, NORTH EAST ENGLAND

WASHINGTON OLD HALL
Washington
Tyne and Wear
A few of the many visitors to this seventeenth century building associated with America and the Ashington family, have enquired about the 'lady in a long grey dress'which has been seen gently wandering along a corridor on the upper floor. Some of the witnesses claim that there is a likeness to one of the family portraits hung in the hall, but this may be wishful thinking.
