Welcome to Ford Green Hall, An EXCLUSIVE venue in the home city of Haunted Houses Events. We are extremely privileged to be the only ghost hunting company allowed to access this historical building at night, delivering you a professional and fully interactive ghost hunt.

Ghost hunts are ever popular at Stoke’s oldest building built in 1624, This former timber-framed Yeomans cottage makes for an eerie ghost hunting experience at night, Ford Green Hall has all of the right elements to not only look like your imaginary haunted house, but with it’s long history it has all of the ghostly sightings to match.

Your ghost hunt at Ford Green Hall will give you and your friends the opportunity to explore all areas of the building made available, such as the parlour, kitchen and upstairs chambers. There, you will be able to experience Victorian inspired ghost hunting activities such as glass divination, table tipping and a group human pendulum experiment. For those wanting to experience a little more  – Ouija boards will also be on available to you to aid your communication with the resident spirits.

For those who want to try their hand and ghost hunting with real ghost hunting gadgets, you will be able to get hands-on experience of using some of the most up-to-date pieces of equipment whilst you carry out your ghost hunt. You will be shown how to use it and learn what to look for as you measure fluctuations in the environment, such as electro magnetic field spikes, and cold spot detection.

Taking part in spirit call-outs is very popular where your own senses will be your primary tool. You will be part of the investigation where you can call out to spirit, asking them for knocks, bangs and whistles, and then we shall wait in silence and darkness to see if you get any responses back.

Haunted Houses Events has been hosting events at Ford Green Hall since 2016, and have taken over 500 eager ghost hunters on a journey into the unknown at this incredible location.

Book your place today, as these ghost hunting events sell out fast!

Haunted Houses likes to work in small teams to give you the very best experience possible and safety is paramount.. For the very brave, lone vigils (ghost hunting in a room all alone) are very popular and plenty of opportunities to do so will be given to you.

Reported Ghosts

A man is often seen around the hall wearing period costume and carrying a silver topped cane. Visitors have often assumed that he is an actor until other people in the group inform them that they haven’t seen him, and the staff tell them that there are no re-enactors around at that time. The man has also been seen numerous times by the past curator of the museum. Could this be the spirit of William Ford who was known to use a similar cane? Imagine the stories he could tell!

A spirit of a woman has been seen in a bedroom and it seems as though she appears through a brick wall. This wall is not an original feature and seems to be in place of a staircase. Is the lady simply a residual energy reliving her life whilst using the stairs; or is she a spirit that is waiting for the right person to tell her story too!

There is also a man who has been seen standing at the top of the attic stairs, he wears a red coat and stands with his hands on his hips. Is he simply observing his house guests or is he waiting to punish anyone who steps out of place.

The ghost of a cat is said to often appear and Haunted Houses guests themselves have encountered him, running into rooms but on searching is nowhere to be found. The buildings’ staff report heavy footsteps coming from above and spinning wheels on display have been seen to move, seemingly all by themselves. Which spirit will you encounter when you join Haunted Houses for a ghost hunt at this historic and beautiful location in Stoke on Trent.

Venue History

Ford Green Hall is a Grade II listed building which was erected as a 17th Century timber framed yeoman farmhouse. It was built in 1624 for Hugh Ford. The Ford family lived here for 200 years; it was then divided into three areas which housed four cottages. It was during this period that the distinctive timber frame was covered in white stucco.

It is now a museum run by a charitable organisation that gives an insight into how life would have been in the 17th Century and is Stoke-on-Trent’s oldest surviving building. Although the rooms today appear to take you back in time, they are not shown how they used to be in Mr. Fords’ time. Can you reach out to spirit to uncover the true usage of these rooms?

Oh Gosh, what a night!! I’m still recovering from the shock of seeing what I believe to be the ghost of a cat! I’ve been on a lot of ghost hunts in the past and it’s hit and miss whether you catch a venue on an active night, and it was for sure active tonight! This is why I do this. Thanks to all the haunted houses team for an amazing night, I will be coming back again as soon as I can.

Natalie Bedford

Spent last night with the team at Ford Green Hall, and it was brilliant! Loads of activity and loads of fun! Can’t wait to visit another location
