The Reported Ghosts of The Old Nick
Ghostly Activity includes Dark shadowy figures and frightening poltergeist activity in the dark derelict police cells. Figures have been seen in the theatre area which was used as the Old Court. Disembodied voices, loud footsteps and a dark sinister presence have also been reported. With over 25 deaths inside this Old Police Station no wonder it holds so many ghosts.
Our previous visits have seen high amounts of activity, from locked off trigger objects being moved, to whistles coming out of the darkness. The Old Nick is the favourite haunted location for many of the Haunted Houses team.
The History of The Old Nick
The Old Nick was built in 1850 and served as the towns Police station and magistrates court for over one hundred years, which housed the town’s most notorious criminals until 1970. In 1979 it was purchased by the Gainsborough Theatre Company and the court room was converted into a small theatre. Small café added and is still used to this day as a venue for entertainment.
In 2017 the neglected cells and police station which had remained untouched since its closure in the 1970’s, was transformed into a Police museum which now houses a large display of local Police and crime memorabilia.
