Some on the activity reported here are a baby has been heard crying all around the hall and ladies' voices are heard. In the Blue Room people have experienced the feelings as if you are being watched, and a man with long coats tails has been seen by the fireplace in here. He is well known to be happy to communicate with ghost hunters.
In fact in 1643 the first ghost was sighted at Bolling Hall, beleived to be the first ghost sighting ever recorded. The head of the Royalist army, the Earl of Newcastle felt his bed clothes being pulled away from him and saw an apparition of a lady wringing her hands and saying 'pity poor Bradford'. As a result he changed his orders from his troops to kill all in Bradford to only kill those who offered armed resistance. As a result only 10 people were recorded as being killed in the siege.
In the 1900s a Mr J.M. Tankard lived at the hall one of the maids was meeting her fiancé in the east part of the grounds when they saw a group of Parliamentarian officers approaching them who suddenly disappeared. Back in the 1940's the head attendant reported seeing a lady in period dress floating 3ft off the ground in the entrance and gliding over to the fireplace and disappearing into it.
Plus much more activity and ghost sighting have been recorder along with Poltergeist activity too.
