Chester Ghost Stories: The hooded man and other strange occurrences at Chester’s Stanley Palace
Every day, hundreds of us walk past the stunning Tudor building that is Stanley Palace, but how many of you know the ghostly tale behind its doors?
The 16th century grade II listed building has long been known as one of the city’s most haunted buildings, with many of its staff and visitors reporting hearing the sound of children whimpering and giggling over the years.
The sound of clogged shoes can also be heard walking along wooden floor boards in the building’s empty rooms, as well as the unexplained stale smell of cigarettes ad cigars.
One of the most reported occurrences at Stanley Palace, however, is the figure of a hooded man walking around the older parts of the building.
It has been said the man could be a Dominican Friar who still enjoys roaming the building, but the spirit of a woman wearing 17th century style dress has also been spotted walking the corridors, as if she is looking for something.
Things got even more eerie two years ago when Liverpool-based paranormal investigators took footage that claimed to have captured on camera the evidence of spiritual activity at Stanley Palace.
The footage, taken by Sefton Paranormal Investigators, seems to show the image of a person standing on a staircase.
Group co-founder Aaron Robinette, said: “We were informed by the curator that there was a staircase with a door underneath it, where a man died.
Ghosts may be sort of creepy,but inside a public toilet?The Chester Chronicles ,reports.”According to website Paranormal Chester, the alleged story goes that the male Frodsham Street toilets are haunted by the spirit of a young man who is believed to have committed suicide either inside or near the facilities.
Witnesses have described the strange man as being in his late teens or early twenties, wearing clothing that implies that he may have died in the 1950s or early 1960s. Not a lot more is known about the man’s identity.
The apparition of this man, who has been nicknamed Tom, has been sighted on a number of occasions, brandishing a bloodied razor blade in his right hand with his wrists bleeding profusely to the floor.
Tom’ is said to have a pale appearance, apart from his eyes, which have been described as vivacious, sparkling and alive. He has been seen to suddenly appear in the corner of the room as visitors relieve themselves at the urinal.
