About Borwick Hall
Borwick Hall is a grade 1 listed 16th century manor house situated in Borwick Lancashire. The manor of Borwick is mentioned in the doomsday book, the oldest parts of the building which are still in existence date from the 14th century when a pele tower was built on the site to protect people and cattle from marauding scots. The tower was then extended into a manor house in the early 1590s by the Bindloss family, a wealthy dynasty of Kendal clothiers, who added the impressive gatehouse and the adjacent stable-block for the pack-horses which carried Kendal cloth south to London.
By the early 19th century the hall fell into a state of disrepair, the manor was only repaired in the 1910s when it was leased to a music critic, who died there in 1936. During the second world war the hall was used as a military base. The estate was then sold to Lancashire youth club association and was then later passed into the ownership of Lancashire county council. The hall was also used for exterior shots for the TV program ghosts of motely hall.
With this being such a historic site there is no surprise that there are so many reports of paranormal activity, it is said that there is a spirit of a female in one of the bedrooms on the third floor, although this is where her presence is felt the most she is also said to walk the entire manor. Visitors and staff have reported hearing cries, moans and the sounds of talking in the distance when nobody else is in the building. There is also a corridor in the manor house which is known as the spooky corridor which leaves you feeling very disorientated and whilst our team were on this corridor one of the bedroom doors opened and then closed followed by a blast of cold air. Many also report seeing dark shadows roaming the corridors and being touched by unseen hands, many visitors refuse to stay in one room in particular due to the spooky goings on that previous guests have experienced.
