Watch what happened when we went Ghost Hunting at Newsham Park Abandoned Hospital
7 years ago
The Guide Liverpool’s Jay Hynd and Mark Byron joined the team at Dusk Til Dawn Events for a ghost hunt in the derelict Newsham Park Hospital, Orphanage and Asylum. You won’t believe what happened, not for the faint hearted – watch the video above.
The Abandoned Newsham Park Hospital and Orphanage, just off West Derby Road was built in 1870 and Dusk Till Dawn Events very kindly invited us to take the cameras inside and join them on a ghost hunt.
The vast grade 11 listed Victorian building was designed by Alfred Waterhouse; who also designed the Manchester Town Hall and the Natural History Museum in London. It lies on 3.5 acres of private fenced off land and has an interior size of 99,000 sq ft.
It overlooks 200 acres of our beautiful Newsham Park and is said to be one of the most haunted places not only in Liverpool, but the whole of the UK. Now derelict the old Hospital’s historical background is that of an Orphanage, and then a Hospital and in later life an Old Person’s Nursing Home. This building is massive in size with so many spooky Corridors, Dens and Rooms to get lost in.
On the upper floors of the building the old Hospital Wards can be found along with a Bell Tower, Chapel, eerie Staircase’s and the all time ultimate; the Mortuary with fridges still intact! This building has lain dormant and desolate for many years and much of the paranormal activity that is said to have occurred has been reported by security staff whilst patrolling the location.
Whispering echoing voices are said to have been heard along with dark shadowed figures which have been seen fleeing up the stairs and corridors; as if eager not to be seen by onlookers.
Strangely Workmen have also reported that tools that they had been using; were moved without explanation only to find them in other parts of the building. The Abandoned Newsham Park Hospital and Orphanage has an intense and foreboding atmosphere which hits you upon entering the venue; we know that you will not want to miss the opportunity to investigate this amazing horror movie style location.
A terrifying place of sorrow, fear and much emotion who knows what will happen during the night of your stay.
Dusk Till Dawn Events have this unique building for an entire night’s investigation and you have the chance to join in your very own Ghost Hunt too, they take part most weekends between 9pm and 3.30am.
