Tour of the Damned - Mosborough, Derbyshire
This is an action packed ghost hunting weekend

Sorry, we do not have any events at the moment
New dates will be coming soon - Please keep checking the website

This Weekend Tour of The Damned is an action packed ghost hunting weekend bringing to life the plight of those who died in the Plague. The Tour of The Damned will not only be exciting and thought provoking but also terrifying and testing. 

Your weekend includes 2 nights Bed, Breakfast and 3 Course Evening Meal  in the luxurious but extremely haunted Mosborough Hall, two nights of ghost hunting and a coach tour of Eyam Plague Village. Night one of ghost hunting is at Bolsover Castle where countless bodies of plague victims are thought to be buried beneath the castle grounds.  Night two will be at Mosborough Hall itself which is steeped in medieval history and a truly barbaric past. This Tour also includes a daytime coach trip on the Saturday to the Plague Village of Eyam in Derbyshire where we will be given a guided tour of the village itself. 

This amazing value for money weekend is the start of a whole new ghost hunting adventure for those who love to embark on the unknown. The plague was a serious epidemic wiping out millions of people throughout its spread, actually killing nearly half of the European population. The Village of Eyam had more than its fair share of plague victims compared to other areas and is steeped in a dark and unforgiving history. Bolsover Castle is related to this in that so many bodies are buried beneath its foundations.

Tour of the Damned

Ghosts of Bolsover Castle, Mosborough Hall and Eyam Plague Village

Ghosts of Bolsover Castle

The Ghosts and spirits that have been encountered at Bolsover Castle leave little doubt that this location is truly haunted. With visitors to the Castle seeing apparitions during the day and staff relaying stories of when they have had doors slammed on them and their ankles touched on so many occasions, it is hard to ignore that there is something going on.  Balls of white light are seen frequently and a young boy is said to grasp the hands of women as they walk through the garden. Bolsover Castle also has its own Grey Lady which is frequently seen walking through the grounds.  There is the sound of crying in the parapets and the screams of a woman heard frequently by so many.  In fact some of what has been happening here is so real to those that experience it that they believe they have absolutely encountered the after-life. Disembodied voices and ghostly footsteps following on the stairs of those who walk up them are also often heard.

Out in the grounds themselves there are apparitions caught on camera over the burial mounds of plague pits.

Could these be the unfortunate souls buried beneath?

The ghosts here are plentiful and willing to show themselves according to those who visit regularly and of course those that work here on a daily basis.  We are really looking forward to seeing who or what we encounter on our overnight ghost hunt at Bolsover Castle.

Ghosts of Mosborough Hall

Mosborough Hall has a history of hauntings with tales of spirit encounters dating back as far as the 1600's

Accounts of the white lady of Mosborourgh hall are said to have originated from the murder of a governess at the hall in the 1600’s. She had found herself pregnant by the squire, who had promised her monies and a cottage, financially not able to fulfil his promise the governess threatened the squire that she would tell his wife, an argument followed and in a moment of desperation he slit her is told she kept a large dog and that it pined to death at the side of her body.

At the turn of the 20th century Dr Pilcher was the local doctor, a no nonsense man who had heard the tails of Mosborough Hall. In a bid to prove there must be a logical explaination for the hauntings he agreed to spend the night, the following morning he was awoke by a knock at the door by staff bringing tea. They both turned to see the bed was stained with human blood which glistened and dripped onto the polished floor boards. After his experience Dr Pilcher resigned from his position of medical officer and vowed never to set foot inside again. The blood stains remained soaked into the floor boards and no amount of scrubbing would remove them. Only in mosborough’s conversion to a hotel were the stains finally removed by replacement of the floor boards.

Tails of a ghostly dog have been witnessed passing through the walls, the touch of unseen hands, a beautiful lady dressed from head to foot in grey with her dress seen to fill the width of the French windows she is seen at. On Hallows road numerous encounters have been seen and the angry voices of the unseen echo in the night.

These stories just scratch the surface of the experiences witnessed over the years. Who will we encounter on our night with the spirits of Mosborough Hall.

Ghosts of Eyam Plague Village

In 1665 a tailor from Eyam ordered a bale of cloth from London to make up into clothes for the villagers, unwittingly triggering a chain of events that led to 260 Eyam villagers dying from bubonic plague – more than double the mortality rate suffered by the citizens of London in the Great Plague.

Between the first death and the last, the villagers set an extraordinary and enduring example of self-sacrifice by sealing off the village from the surrounding areas to prevent the disease spreading.

Less than a century later, Ralph Wain, working in a factory in the village, invented a revolutionary new way of reproducing designs in silk. Together with the miners, spinners, weavers, other skilled craftsmen and women, poets, and writers – he contributed to the rebirth of the village after the plague. The ghosts and spirits that have not only been seen but heard by so many still put fear into those who pass through Eyam Plague Village.  We will even be having lunch in The Miners Arms, which is said to be extremely haunted.  There is also a sense of desolation at the site where the plague victims spent their last days, isolated from the rest of the villagers who had become so afraid of catching this deathly disease.  Many, many sightings have taken place here.
