This is the only Militia building surviving in County Durham. At one time these barracks were used a a smallpox hospital which also had a morgue to srore many deceased bodies, funnily enough there are many ghost stories reported in this area in particular.
The courtyard also has a commonly seen ghost, that of a young soldier who accidently blew himself up whilst loading a cannon. The people who have seen this ghost state that its was a frightening experience that they would never forget.
There is a Lady in White seen roaming between the barracks and the buriel ground situated next door. Was this the spirit of a lady who was secretly meeting up with a soldier? We dare you to join us on our first visit to this amazing building!
This is Simply Ghost Nights visit to the Vane Tempest, and one we are so looking forward to.
