Join the UK Ghost Nights team as we visit the Haunted Knottingley Town Hall in West Yorkshire. Dating back to the 1880s this unassuming building has many ghostly tales to tell and is a prominent part of the local history.
Knottingley has an ancient history prior to the town hall being built in 1880. The area was first habited by the Anglo-Saxons and the first recording of the town was in the Doomsday Book of 1066. The location of the building is said to have housed a Medieval Monastery, until the King of England Henry VIII closed them all down in the dissolution of the Monasteries in 1541. The cellars of the current building were used as a temporary morgue in 1943 after a freak accident took the lives of 5 soldiers. Today the Town Hall is a thriving community hub used by all ages . It’s not surprising really that its know as Haunted Knottingley Town Hall
