Woodchester Mansion is a 19th Century Victorian Gothic Masterpiece mysteriously abandoned mid-construction in 1873. Hidden in a secluded Cotswold valley, it is untouched by time and the modern world. This Grade 1 Listed Building has been saved from dereliction, but will never be completed. Woodchester Mansion - Haunted Rooms In the scullery if you listen closely you just might catch the sound of a woman's voice singing an Irish folk song. As Woodchester was never occupied for any length of time it would never have had any staff that could have 'returned' in spirit. Many of the spirits residing at Woodchester are thought to be linked to the previous residence Spring Park. It is known that Woodchester's kitchen and scullery occupy the same spot as the previous building. Indeed it is worth noting that the floor of the scullery and kitchen seem to be much older the building itself. In the short passageway between the two rooms the floor is worn and pitted, as if it has experienced centuries of use. Walking through the passage we enter Woodchester's kitchen, it's here where the clock intended for the mansion's main tower, now stands. One of the more famous ghost stories about the property concerns this clock, which is said to start of its own accord. Visitors have heard its chime, even when the clock has not been working. The spirit of a young girl has been seen on numerous occasions playing and running up and down the stairs to the first floor. This staircase is positioned almost exactly where Spring Park's stairs once stood, so it is possible that the girls spirit could be from that period too. Once you reach the first-floor landing and look to your right you may spot either one of two other ghosts who've been spotted within along the landing. The first ghost is that of a man whom Little is known of, except that he is seen he is aware of the person viewing him. The second is a much smaller man usually dressed all in black and wearing a hat.
