Mill Street Barracks was originally used as war offices. Initially the headquarters for the 47th Lancashire Rifle Volunteer Corps, and then many more to follow.
That sounds all very formal, but the building has seen darker times. At a time, the building acted as an isolation unit for sufferers of tuberculosis. Bodies of the deceased were stored here in a makeshift morgue during both world wars.
There are tunnels under the barracks that are said to lead to the local church.
Spirits haunting Mill Street Barracks are varied and unexpected. These include soldiers, as we’d expect. But there are also children, nuns, nurses, and a 3 legged dog.
Bad smells are experienced, children’s crying is heard, dark shadows are seen and people report being pushed on the stairs by unseen hands.
Dare you explore this foreboding building?
