The Ghosts of Woodchester Mansion


There have been hundreds of reports of paranormal activity from Woodchester Mansion, and the variety is nearly as extensive. The most recognised ghost is that of a man believed to have been a stonemason. He is a short man who has been seen many times in a doorway by the chapel. He does nothing but gaze up at the ornate windows. Perhaps he is concerned with water penetration causing damage to the stonework. 

There are many more spirits lurking around the mansion. A more bizarre report, which has been made by many, is that of a floating head seen in the bathroom! A ghost of an old woman attacks female visitors by grabbing them. A woman singing Irish folk songs has been heard in the scullery. A young girl has been seen playing on the first floor, as well as running up and down the stairs. A ghostly figure has been seen by the mansion gates and a horseman has been seen on the drive. 

As well as these sightings, people have claimed to smell freshly extinguished candles in the chapel. Light anomalies have been seen and object displacement is a regular occurrence. Cold spots have also been reported, but given the buildings location, this could simply be atmospherics. If this isn't enough to convince you, we have some first hand stories….
