Woodchester Mansion, Gloucestershire
Woodchester Mansion in Gloucestershire was abandoned by its builders in the middle of construction, leaving behind a building that appears complete from the outside, but with floors, plaster and whole rooms missing inside. It has remained in this state since the mid-1870s.
The mansion’s creator William Leigh bought the Woodchester Park estate for £100,000 in 1854, demolishing an existing house on the site known as “Spring Park”, which had been home to the Ducie family.
It is a Gothic masterpiece, with sinister and oppressive spirits said to haunt its dark corridors. Reported activity includes EVP recordings, extreme temperature fluctuations and even apparitions.
