Paranormal Eye Uk
Belgrave Hall is arguably Leicester's most famous haunted landmark. Since the last tenants vacated the premises in 1936, rumours of paranormal activity have been rife. Belgrave Hall was thrust into the spotlight when security cameras recorded two misty images in 1998. CCTV footage showed a six foot tall white figure hovering outside a rear window of the property , before disappearing over a nearby wall, Many believe this to be Charlotte Ellis, one of previous resident John Ellis' seven daughters. However, why Charlotte has been named as the ghost rather than any of her six sisters remains unknown. Staff and guests have also reported inexplicable shadows and cooking odours floating throughout the building, while they also report hearing mysterious footsteps on the upper floors.
visitors to the hall continue to report paranormal experiences from sudden temperature changes to the feeling of being watched. Many believe there is a Victorian lady that is often seen and heard walking across the upper floors and the staircase here. There has also been many sightings of a tall gentleman, doors opening and closing are witnessed by unforeseen hands.
Belgrave Hall is a historic house, providing an oasis of peace and quiet in a busy city.
The hall was built in the early 18th century in what was then a small village three miles from the town of Leicester. Now city traffic passes, almost unnoticed, just beyond the garden walls.
Edmund Cradock, a hosiery merchant, built Belgrave Hall but died soon after its completion. The Hall has had several owners over the years, including John Ellis – a wealthy businessman who was responsible for bringing the railways to Leicester.
Belgrave Hall was built as a substantial family home between 1709 and 1713 by Edmund Cradock, a Leicester hosiery merchant, on a site adjacent to Belgrave Church. At the time Belgrave was a small village three miles from Leicester, between the roads to Loughborough and Lincoln, and Belgrave Hall set a trend for wealthy businessmen to build themselves out-of-town houses in the area. The house, fronting onto Church Road, is a three-storey building in an unadorned classical style, from blue and red bricks, laid in Flemish bond, creating a chequered pattern. There are lead rainwater heads with the Craddock family crest, some of which have a 1709 date and others with 1713. This unusually long construction period, along with brickwork and ground-plan irregularities on the south side, may imply a re-design or halt to construction while building was underway. The road frontage has imposing wrought iron gates which incorporate an 'EC' monogram leading to a recessed doorway, and a brick parapet which hides the three hipped gables of the roof, creating a very rectangular façade
