Join the paranormal eye team as we invite you to Borwick Hall
Borwick Hall is situated in Carnforth, Lancashire, surrounded by acres of land, which is part of this stunning sixteenth-century manor house; some parts of this vast house are from the 14th century. Upon entering this location, you feel watched, and you know you are not alone. This location has strong connections to the former Rectory, less than a 5-minute drive away. On our first visit to this location, we witnessed a female moan and heard cries coming from an empty room on both the third and second floor, drastic temperature changes, along with the feeling of being watched. Dark ghostly shadows have been reported wandering in the dark, eerie corridor on the 3rd floor. The staff here have named this spooky corridor. Doors have been slammed shut by unseen hands, the sound of people chatting in the distance when only one staff member is on-site. Once, two teenagers in the main hall fled the building and refused to return after they witnessed what they described as a male apparition. They said he just stood, turned, and looked straight through them; many staff members believe this could have been John Alexander Fuller Maitland who died 1936 at Borwick Hall. Are you ready to be part of this intense Overnight Ghost hunt at this vast haunted house?
History of Borwick Hall
It is possible that Borwick Hall’s fortifications were initially built from wood. But in the late fourteenth century, a stone Pele tower was erected to protect people and cattle from marauding Scots. The Hall was extended in the sixteenth century by the Bindloss family, a wealthy dynasty of Kendal clothiers, who added the impressive gatehouse and the adjacent stable block for the pack-horses which carried Kendal cloth south to London. Sir Robert Bindloss was elected Member of Parliament for Lancaster at the age of sixteen, and his immense wealth is said to have prompted a contemporary saying: “As rich as Sir Robert in the North.” Officially he backed Parliament in the Civil War, but he seems to have had Royalist sympathies. In 1651 he was diplomatically absent when Borwick Hall accommodated the future Charles the Second after his defeat at the Battle of Carlisle. Local tradition is that a young local woman attended His Majesty in a first-floor bedroom: a liaison that produced one of his many illegitimate children.
The datestone on Borwick Hall's gatehouse carries the date 1650, and the initials of Robert Bindloss and his wife,
Giant limestone blocks on the village green mark the foundations of a chapel where Dr. Richard Sherlock -- formerly a chaplain to Royalist troops -- preached dangerously unfashionable Catholic sermons in the 1650s. He clashed in debate with the Yealand Quaker, Richard Hubberthorne. And George Fox, the founder of the Quaker movement, complained that armed men from Borwick Hall had tried to break up one of his meetings. In the Jacobite rebellion of 1715, Ralph Standish of Borwick Hall supported the Catholic and Stuart causes. But he was captured at the Battle of Preston, where the uprising was crushed.
The Lancaster Canal arrived at Borwick in the 1790s and the railway in 1867. But Borwick was now taking a backseat in national affairs.
The Jackson family, who lived at Borwick Hall in the mid-19th century, were innovative farmers who introduced short-horn cattle and Leicester sheep to the area. Meanwhile, the Sharps of Linden Hall-- just across the green -- commissioned fashionable Lancaster architects Austin and Paley to build St Mary’s church in 1896 as a chapel of ease, still subordinate to the Parish Church at Warton.
Borwick Hall fell into disuse in the later 19th century until the former music critic of The Times, JA Fuller Maitland, in 1911. After he died in 1936, it became a country club, and during the Second World War, it was taken over as a military base.
Today, with its cottages and farms clustering around the green in the shadow of the Hall, the village retains a charming, timeless quality. And, indeed, Borwick has not expanded as fast as some villages. When the first national census was carried out in 1801, its population was 208. By 2001 it had risen to 210.
