Dare you join us for a night of terror at the infamous Walton Hall? An eerie Victorian stately home stood in the imposing grounds of Walton Gardens, where the presence of a malevolent spirit and sightings of a female spirit are witnessed regularly.
Dating back to 1836, Walton Hall was built in the Elizabethan style for Gilbert Greenall and his wife, Lady Daresbury. Lady Daresbury is said to haunt the main staircase of the hall, which is where it is believed she met her untimely demise, pushing unsuspecting visitors down the stairs whilst also wandering the rooms of her mansion as if almost looking for something or someone before appearing as a full apparition.

A sinister male presence in the hall makes himself known to people by showing himself as a shadow figure. Ghostly footsteps can be heard wandering the corridors and upper rooms of the house. On occasions, visitors have also reported the sensation of hands tightening around their throats to make it known they are not welcome. His presence is reported as feeling very heavy and unwelcoming, with a malevolent atmosphere that chills you to the bone.

Several other spirits have been witnessed at this historic location, including that of a young girl who is said to be wandering the house's rooms in search of her mother, making her anguish and emotions known to guests by passing her emotions onto unsuspecting guests.

Are you bold enough to contact the active former inhabitants of this hall and seek the secrets kept within its walls?

History Of Walton Hall

Thomas Greenall established what was to be the family business, Wilderspool brewery in 1762. It was a highly successful venture. So successful that Thomas’ son, Edward was able to purchase Walton Estate in 1814. And by the 1830s, Edward had succeeded in building Walton Hall. However, it wasn’t until 1910 and 1930 that Lord and Lady Daresbury opened the estate to the public. By that time Walton’s spectacular gardens were the main attraction on open days.

Unfortunately, Edward didn’t have long to enjoy the estate before his death in 1835. It was his son Gilbert who made Walton the Greenall family home and country estate. As well as controlling the family brewing business, Gilbert also held political and social aspirations. By the time of his retirement, Gilbert had served Warrington as Conservative Member of Parliament for over 30 years!

Such was his influence and standing in the local community that Gilbert was granted a peerage in 1927. ‘Sir’ Gilbert spent his life establishing Walton Estate, including the extension of the hall in the 1870s. It was during this renovation that the now-iconic clock tower was built.

However, it was Sir Gilbert’s son (also Gilbert), who transformed the estate. More commonly known as Lord Daresbury, he made the estate into a model of agricultural excellence. Such was his success that the gardens would attract up to 45,000 people during open days and in particular for The Walton Show.
At the height of Lord Daresbury’s wealth, he had bought up to 7,000 acres of land around Walton Hall, and financed local buildings such as St John the Evangelist Church in Walton Village. He also employed stable lads, gardeners, gamekeepers and foresters, and rented land to local farmers.

Thanks to the family fortune Lord Daresbury lived the life of an aristocratic country gentleman. He was a prominent agriculturalist and a widely respected breeder of horses, pigs and cattle. His wife Frances was a passionate gardener, and with the help of 26 gardeners and a pony-drawn lawnmower, she shaped Walton’s spectacular gardens.
