Your Ghost Hunt at Revesby Abbey

Revesby Abbey is reputed to be one of the most haunted buildings in Britain but certainly has the reputation as the most haunted building in Lincolnshire. With so many reported incidents of harrowing paranormal activity we feel that we should warn you that a night beneath the ruins of Revesby Abbey may be a little too daunting for some.

Footsteps are often heard to approach but no one ever appears, dark figures and shapes dart quickly from room to room. Chanting is often heard but the source can never be found. Bearing witness to slamming doors and doors even locking themselves in the rooms beneath this old abbey is a chilling experience. Whoever remains within the basement of Revesby Abbey likes to make it clear that they want you to leave!

Ghosts of Revesby Abbey

The many rooms and dark areas beneath Revesby Abbey that have their own ghostly phenomena. In the servants quarters, the sound of running footsteps can be heard and the sound of slamming doors resonates throughout the abandoned corridors.

Revesby Abbey is fast becoming a favourite for ghost hunters due to the amount of ghostly activity and experiences witnessed underneath in the abbey ruins. Heavy footsteps and sinister shuffling sounds, accompanied by a menacing shadowy presence are just part of the activity associated with this haunted old abbey.

Unexplainable EMF spikes and measurable temperature changes are common place with some people being so frightened that they have been unable to return to the building. Your Ghost Hunt at Revesby Abbey will not only take in the tunnels below the ruins of the abbey but also the old stables, chapel and brewhouse.

History of Revesby Abbey

The current Revesby Abbey is the third building to be called such and is Grade I listed. A Grade I listing is the highest possible listing for buildings and hence Revesby Abbey is recognised as one of the most important buildings in the country.

This abbey was designed by renowned Scottish architect William Burn in 1843 and building work finished in 1845. This means the construction of the house took less than two years, to build over 65,000 sq ft of Victorian luxury, which is astounding considering the lengths they went to. The abbey is in the 'Jacobethan' or sometimes 'neo Jacobean' style and was built with 10 acres of formal gardens, rose harbours and such, all surrounded by a medieval deer park.

The first building to be called Revesby Abbey was a Cistercian monastery, hence the name 'Revesby Abbey'. This abbey was founded by william de Roumare, Earl of Lincoln, who became a monk himself. Monks from the famous abbey in Yorkshire, Rievaulx were the first to be sent to inhabit the abbey, led by Saint Aelred of Rievaulx and under St Aelred's management the abbey became one of the most influential Cistercian Abbey's.

Saint Aelred is even today considered a great scholar and philosopher and advised the King of time in many occasions. The abbots became very bad at managing the abbey though and so in 1538, the Duke of Norfolk wrote to Thomas Cromwell to inform him the abbey was "in great ruin and decay" (despite the abbey earning around £600,000 in todays money) and so it was destroyed like so many others under Henry VIII.

After the dissolution, Charles Brandon the first Duke of Suffolk, brother in law to Henry VII got the estate. After he died in 1545, the estate swapped hands many times until it reached Craven Howard who decided he wanted to build a country house on the land. The estate then passed to his son, Henry Howard who decided to sell the house in 1711 to Joseph Banks, the Great Grandfather of the famous botanist and 'Father of Australia' Sir Joseph Banks. 

Joseph Banks died in 1820 and so the estate was passed to a distant relative, James Bank Stanhope. After not being lived in for many years the abbey went into a state of disrepair and so after Banks-Stanhope consulted builders, he came to the conclusion that it would be cheaper to build a beautiful new country house to replace this one. The contents of the house were sold off at auction, but despite what many think most of the buildings materials were not sold, but rather re-used in the current abbey.
