Reported Ghosts

 

“Haunting Chronicles: Ghosts & Paranormal Encounters at Peterborough Museum”

Most Haunted in Peterborough: Peterborough Museum stands as the reputedly most haunted building in the city, with spiritual energies entwined with artifacts, various paranormal activities, and ghostly beings from its intriguing past.

The Lonely Anzac’s Resonance: The spirit of Thomas Hunter (aka ‘The Lonely Anzac’) echoes throughout the building, primarily witnessed on the Main Staircase and in the Victorian Operating Theatre, adorned with bandages around his leg and back. Thomas’s demise within these walls suggests a lingering presence, perhaps tethered to the site of his last moments.

Spectral Roman Sentinel: A ghostly Roman Soldier, clad in full armor, materializes in the Archaeology Gallery. Linked to a particular artifact, he is often seen standing by the exhibit, as if searching for a missing belonging from his past life.

Monastic Shadows in the Depths: Beneath in the Priestgate Vaults, shadowy Monks traverse the long tunnels and doorways, accompanied by disembodied voices, footsteps, groans, and chanting. Reports even mention a Black Dog and eerie light anomalies, unsettling those who bear witness.

Innocence Amidst the Galleries: The Jurassic, Ice Age, and Wildlife Galleries harbour the spirit of a Little Girl, dressed in White and Yellow, playfully skipping around with audible giggles. The mystery lingers—does she share connections with the Orme family or the Cooke family?

Ethereal Presence on the Upper Floors: Upstairs on the Second Floor, cold spots and swift-moving shadows prevail, especially in the Napoleonic Gallery. In the Changing Lives In Peterborough Gallery and the hidden corridor with the secret Servants’ Staircase, the spirit of a Young Maid roams, yearning to reveal the true story of her demise.

Eerie Manifestations: The paranormal canvas extends to reported slamming doors in deserted spaces, and objects mysteriously moving despite being locked behind glass cases. With myriad haunting occurrences, what will unfold in the shadows after dark at Peterborough Museum?

Venue History

“Unraveling Centuries: The Birth of Peterborough Museum”

Embark on a captivating journey through the storied past of Peterborough Museum, an architectural gem established in 1816 on the grounds once occupied by the illustrious ‘Neville Place.’ Dating back to 1536, Neville Place, a grand Tudor House, stood proudly until its demolition in 1815, leaving behind the enigmatic cellars now known as the Priestgate Vaults. These vaults, with their original stone walls and rooms, held secrets of clandestine gatherings during the Dissolution of the Monasteries and the English Civil War.

“Metamorphosis: From Tudor House to Georgian Splendour”

In 1815, the Tudor House underwent a transformation at the hands of local magistrate Thomas Alderson Cooke, becoming the grand Georgian Priestgate Mansion that graces our present skyline. The mansion’s legacy took a pivotal turn in 1856 when Earl Fitzwilliam acquired it, paving the way for its conversion into Peterborough’s inaugural hospital in 1857. A beacon of medical progress, the facility housed England’s first X-ray machine outside of London by 1928.

“Echoes of War: The Lonely Anzac and World War I”

The echoes of war reverberated within the walls during World War I, as wounded soldiers, including the gallant Australian Thomas Hunter, sought solace in the infirmary. Hunter’s poignant journey ended tragically in the museum on July 31, 1916, earning him the enduring local epithet ‘The Lonely Anzac.’

“Transformative Chapters: From Infirmary to Peterborough Museum”

In 1931, a new chapter unfolded as the infirmary transformed into Peterborough Museum under the stewardship of the Peterborough Museum Society. The baton passed to Peterborough City Council in 1968, and today, the museum stands as a living legacy, overseen by the esteemed Vivacity Trust. Each corridor, vault, and room within Peterborough Museum whispers tales of its evolution, offering visitors a unique glimpse into the fascinating tapestry of its history.”
