The Village

The Village Ghosts
LOCATION INFORMATION

LOCATION: Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, UK

DATE BUILT: 1787. 

GRADE LISTED: Grade II

RUINED: No.

ORIGINAL PURPOSE: A slaughter house. 

OTHER USES: The building became a Malt House in the 1800s. It was then bought by Mansfield Brewery 1954. In the 1970s it became The Village nightclub and stayed that way until 2001. It lay abandoned for 10 years until it was bought by the current owners. The building is now used as a venue for Laser Tag and ghost hunts.

PREVIOUS BUILDINGS ON SITE: A barn is said to have stood on the site used as a hiding place by monks from the nearby St Peters Church.

HISTORY

INTERESTING FACTS: 

CLAIM TO FAME: The Village has made the press several times in recent years due to the paranormal activity experienced. 

GRIZZLY HISTORY: I think the fact that the building was originally a slaughterhouse is grizzly enough. The turnover of animals passing through the slaughterhouse would have been a lot smaller than today’s standards, but the purpose remains the same. 

DEATHS: There are rumours that a woman called Catherine and her baby were murdered at The Village. I can find no evidence to support this further. 

The barn that stood on the site before the current building is said to have burnt to the ground, with several monks perishing inside. 

HAUNTINGS

RESIDENT GHOSTS: 

• Mr Merryweather – the malt house owner. 

• Catherine – the murdered woman.

• A group of prisoners – the are said to have been held captive in the building at some point in its history.

• Children – possibly labourers from the malt house days.   

TIMESPAN OF HAUNTINGS: Unknown.
