The Venue: LANGLEY PRIORY, Leicestershire
Founded by William Pantulf in AD 1154, Langley Priory – which was of the Benedictine order – remained an important part of the local area, until Henry VIII’s Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1536.
As with so many buildings of this type during the Dissolution, the original structure that was Langley Priory was torn down. The two wings of the present house were built in 1570 by re-using the Norman stone from the ruined Castle at Donington, itself said to be a very haunted location. Further building work saw the middle section linking the two wings being built in 1690, with a Victorian annexe being added to the North Wing in 1888.
There is no doubting that Langley Priory is a beautiful building, and was described in the 1840’s as “one of the finest manorial type houses in Leicestershire”. The house is home to a fine collection of sixteenth century tapestries and some beautiful medieval stained glass.
Langley Priory is a Grade II* listed building, and remains a private family home.
Langley Priory has many paranormal secrets to uncover, and during a recent Dead Haunted investigation did not let us down.
The Buried Man
Langley Priory has seen many deaths over the years, and indeed there are countless bodies buried just beyond its welcoming doors; many of them would have been nuns who very often lived their whole lives here.
During recent works outside in the grounds the body of a male was accidentally excavated. He was reburied in the garden, and you can see his marker to this day.
Nobody is sure who this is, but has disturbing him from his slumber caused any paranormal activity? We’ll find out during our visit.
The Ancient Disused Wing
One particularly spooky and chilling area of Langley Priory is an ancient and disused wing, which we will have access too during our investigation; it is very much in the same condition as it was hundreds of years ago…who knows what or who still resides within its walls?
Lurking within the upper recesses of Langley Priory are the attic rooms. These rooms alone are enough to send a shiver down the spine, and that is during the daytime. At night and in the darkness what strange and mysterious things will come out to play?
During our events we have seen many cellars. They are often a hive of paranormal activity, and often that activity can be frightening (Peterborough Museum springs to mind here!)…and Langley Priory has one too. This is one area we are all looking forward to conducting our vigils and experiments.
