'The Ghosts of Crowley Hall'

the calling of the dead of Crowley Hall

In late 2006, after a phone call from the owner of Crowley Hall in the north of England, ghost hunter Arron Kasady did some research into the history and strange occurrences that have happened there. There were no witnesses to the noises heard there, and only a couple of people that were there during the ghost sightings have been found. The only other evidence, that was discovered in the nurses quarters, was a photograph taken in 1974.

In early 2007, a small team of paranormal investigators led by Arron Kasady, entered the building to conduct some preliminary tests. Photographs were taken, that produced images of strange orbs in certain rooms, particularly the old children's nursery. Erratic temperature readings were recorded throughout the hall, and the team had the feeling of being constantly watched.

Following on from this initial research, Arron decided to conduct a full investigation into the ghosts that apparently reside at Crowley Hall. It was hoped that conclusive evidence of paranormal activity and ghosts could be gathered during their stay there. The whole event was filmed and photographed for a documentary entitled 'The Ghosts of Crowley Hall'.

Story by Arron Kasady

Crowley Hall, situated in the north of England, was built in the late 19th century. It had originally been built as a hospital and served that purpose until the 1920’s, when it was reformed and renamed as ‘The Crowley Home for the Criminally Insane’. Run by head practitioner Dr. Bernard Leys and his wife Beatrice, it was one of the key centres for mental illness and criminal behavioural studies in the north of England.

Crowley Hall, situated in the north of England, was built in the late 19th century. It had originally been built as a hospital and served that purpose until the 1920’s, when it was reformed and renamed as ‘The Crowley Home for the Criminally Insane’. Run by head practitioner Dr. Bernard Leys and his wife Beatrice, it was one of the key centres for mental illness and criminal behavioural studies in the north of England.

There have been many supposed Ghost Sightings at Crowley Hall in England. During it's life, the Hall has had a number of paranormal incidents suggesting the prescence of ghosts, and there are Ghost Stories dating back to the the 1950's. Recently, a Ghost Photo was recovered during renovations at the hall, and this had prompted a full Ghost Investigation there. This Investigation is being made into a Feature Film due to be released towards the end of 2007.

Leys ran Crowley Hall for 32 years, before dying in mysterious circumstances during an examination on one of the more seriously deranged inmates at the asylum. It had been claimed that Leys died after being attacked by the inmate whilst carrying out an operation. The inmate had apparently not been fully anaesthetised, and woke during the procedure. In the ensuing chaos, the inmate stabbed Leys in the neck. Official records state however that Leys died of a heart attack while during the operation.

During Leys’ time at the hall, rumours of serious malpractice were rife. Stories spread of experimentation on some of the most violent inmates, including beatings and starvation. Upon Leys’ death, an investigation into the rumours was conducted. However, the findings were inconclusive, as many records of the time had been destroyed when a fire broke out during the investigation.

 

In all the investigations I have done, I can truly say that I have walked away thinking that maybe there was a scientific explanation for everything I have witnessed. I am a ghost hunter, I should always come away questioning what I have seen that way I can separate what I believe is true paranormal activity from what isn't. However when it came to the location I am writing about now, I can honestly say my beliefs were turned upside down and inside out.

We heard about Crowley Hall when the owner of the location called us about some problems he was having whilst carrying out renovations. The workers he had employed had been suffering at the hands of sever supernatural activity, and during a particularly nasty attack had downed tools and gone on strike. Well, when the team hear this sort of thing, it is like music to our ears. Plus we had recently been discussing the possibility of shooting a documentary of one of our investigations, but nothing had come close to the possibilities that Crowley Hall could have. So once everything had been organised we were on our way.

When we finally reached the building, I was excited to be doing something a
bit different from the norm. Not just carrying out an investigation with such a history as Crowley Hall, had but also being able to document it on film. The building itself was a grand old place. Inside, although the upper floors had the look of a recent children's hospital, the lower floors still held the atmosphere of a building that had been around for more than one hundred years. In fact this was probably the biggest building we had
investigated.

Arron Kasady

My excitement was matched by the other members of the ghost hunting crew. This was a new experience for us and you could feel the atmosphere was electric. Unfortunately this wasn't a feeling that was going to last very long.

Everything was going smoothly until Annabel, our spiritual medium, whispered in my ear that she had grave reservations for the evening's activities. She had felt that Crowley Hall had something in store for us that evening and she was extremely worried for the safety of everyone involved. She asked me to make sure that I was spiritually protected alongwith the rest of the crew.

I should have listened.

Annabel was uncomfortable about the whole thing from the very beginning. She had picked up on the spirits of both Alfred and Doctor Leys. She had told us that Doctor Leys was angry at us for being there, and he was going to show us just how angry he was later on in the evening. I really should have listened.

Filming of the Ghost of Crowley Hall.

Maybe it was the excitement of making the documentary that dulled my own feelings towards what could happen. Maybe I was just caught up with making sure the filming was going as planned to think clearly. Everything was going well. We had heard some sounds and caught some 'orb' footage. The evening looked like it would just progress as it had done in most other haunted building we had been in. The shooting was going smoothly, interviews were filmed and a couple of vigils held. In my mind nothing more was going to happen, until we held the séance in the old children's ward. In retrospect, I probably shouldn't have pushed as hard as I did. I shouldn't have said what I did. Annabel had been there to warn us of all this and I ignored the warnings.

What happened later on that evening will stay with me forever. A lot of the team couldn't sleep properly after that night. I couldn't sleep for days afterwards. I keep questioning what happened, always thinking back to the séance, always asking whether I could have handled things differently. constantly blaming myself.

It was the first time we have ever had to abandon an investigation halfway through. After what happened to me I knew we had to get out of there. We had been scared so much we couldn't face spending another moment in that place. It has made me question a lot about my own beliefs, made me think about what is actually out there. A majority of us think of life after death as a few footsteps in a dark building, or a few light anomalies flashing across a camera. We always hope for that full spectral manifestation to prove that ghosts are real, but after Crowley Hall, I don't think you need a ghost to come right up to the camera and say hello to prove it exists.

Crowley Hall Séance

We have been making plans to go back and finish what we started. Two
thirds of the crew don't want to return, and I don't blame them. I don't want to go back, but I need to find out if what happened that night wasn't just my imagination.

The thought of going back scares me, and I don't mind admitting that for the first time in my life. I am truly terrified. The ghost hunters did return to Crowley Hall, and the second part of the investigation there was completed in the early hours on 12th August 2007.

More strange paranormal activity was witnessed and recorded by the team, including moving objects, strange noises and more orbs. Delving into parts of the Hall previously unexplored, Dr. Leys' home was investigated, and some of the findings were quite incredible.
