Scolton Manor - Pembrokeshire Ghost Hunt
Scolton Manor Ghost Hunts / Ghost Hunting Experiences
Scolton Manor Ghost Nights / Paranormal Events Paranormal Eye UK
Scolton Manor, a stunning Grade II listed country house from 1840, is located on the outskirts of Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park. Its picturesque surroundings add to its beauty, but as night falls, the atmosphere changes entirely. Many rumours suggest that the house is haunted. The Higgon family, a well-known family in Pembrokeshire, is believed to be responsible for the paranormal activity. Lt Col John Henry Victor Higgon (1902-1987), the last resident, was one of three family members to hold the position of High Sheriff of Pembrokeshire. Guests and staff have reported strange happenings, including footsteps, singing, and voices coming from empty rooms. Shadowy figures have been seen wandering down deserted hallways and lurking in dimly lit corners. Past ghost hunts have documented unexplainable sounds and physical sensations, such as being touched or grabbed and an eerie sense of being watched. During your ghost hunt, you will have exclusive access to many of the manor's haunted areas, which are part of its rich history. Who or what will you encounter inside this chilling, haunted manor house?
History of Scolton Manor
Scolton Manor was built in 1842 for the Higgon family by the local architects William and James Owen. Perhaps the most impressive feature is the cantilevered staircase, made of Bath stone. The Higgons supplied no less than 3 Sheriffs of Pembrokeshire, and since there were no other large landowners in the area they were the major employer.
In the inner hall hangs a portrait of John Higgon (1873-1916) who would have inherited Scolton but died while fighting in France during WWI.
The last Higgon to reside at Scolton was Lt Col John Higgon, who was captured and held as a prisoner of war in WWII. He survived and in 1951 became the 3rd of his family to become Sheriff of Pembrokeshire.
Scolton served as the Higgon's family home until World War Two when it became a convalescent hospital. In 1972 it was purchased by the Pembrokeshire County Council and restored to house the county museum, offering visitors a glimpse of Victorian life above and below stairs. Watch out for a wonderful array of Victorian household gadgets, from knife cleaning machines to an 1880s clothes washing machine.
Look for the portrait of Lucy Walter in the drawing room. Walter was Charles II's mistress and mother of James, Duke of Monmouth. In the Dining Room is the most important painting in the County Museum's collection, 'The Tenby Fisherwoman', painted by William Frith in 1880. The painting shows the artist's wife and daughter buying fish from a Llangwm fish seller while on a holiday at Tenby.
