Venue History

Beaumanor Hall is a grade II listed building near Loughborough in Leicestershire, designed by William Railton and built by George Bridgart in 1850 for the Herrick family. It was used by the military in the second world war and now currently owned by Leicestershire County Council. Previous buildings on the site date back to the 14th Century.

The hall as it stands today was the residence of the Herrick family. It was built for William Herrick who married Sophia Christie, 37 years his younger in 1862. William’s sister also resided at Beaumanor Hall until she died in 1871 followed by William Herrick in 1876. All of William’s property was left to his wife Sophia and she continued to manage the estate for the next 40 years. When she died in 1915 the estate was left to William’s relative (William Curzon) who took on the surname of Herrick after becoming the owner of Beaumanor Hall.

In 1939 the war office requisitioned the estate and it became a secret listening station for encrypted enemy signals, Beaumanor Hall became the one of the most important locations for this. Many rooms in the house were used as a training centre for civilian staff of the post office, civil service and merchant navy as well as royal navy and royal air force. The huge cellars, outbuildings and stables were used for workshops.

After the war the hall was passed back to the Herrick family and on the death of William Curzon-Herrick the estate passed to Lt. Col. Assheton Penn Curzon Howe Herrick but for financial reasons he disposed of all assets in 1946. The estate was bought back by the war office and later purchased by the Leicestershire County Council in the mid 70’s.

Christie Keller

This experience was a Christmas gift for my mom who is extremely interested in ghost shows. They did not disappoint! We went to Beaumanor Hall last night and had an absolute ball! Everyone was extremely welcoming and chatty and it was good vibes all around! Indya was our guide and she was fantastic at guiding us through the venue and not rushing us. I was honestly skeptical of the Victorian methods of contacting spirits but I was shocked at the responses we had with the glass divination! 100% will do again. I’m already looking at where to go next!
