A spooky night is in store for visitors to an iconic Keighley mill this spring.

They can explore Dalton Mills with professional ghost hunters and learn about the building’s haunted history.

Fright Nights West Yorkshire is hosting ghostbusting tours in the disused parts of the grade II-listed former textile mill.

They will also use scientific and ‘ghostbusting’ equipment, walk around with an established medium, and carry out experiments such as glass divination and seances.

The aim is to witness some of the paranormal activity that has previously been reported at Dalton Mills.

Fright Nights has run ghost hunts in locations around the country for 15 years and Kellie Etherington and Nathan Wallbank have just bought the West Yorkshire franchise.

Kellie said: “Dalton Mills is a fabulous location as it has such a rich and fascinating history.

“We’ve also been able to get hold of some of the original artefacts, which we can use as ‘trigger’ objects in our experiments.

“We have some of the original clocking in cards that were used by the mill workers in its heyday.

“There are also lots of other features of the past still contained within the mill – the ‘naughty ring’ where children were taken when they misbehaved. Shoes have been found within walls, placed there to ward off witches.”

Kellie said there had been numerous reports of strange sights and sounds in the mill. She said it was rumoured that a lady in clogs could be heard wandering around one of the top floors, and that former foreman Myers was still roaming the building watching over his workers.

Fright Nights’ first Ghost Hunt is on May 2 from 8pm to 3am and costs £50. It features medium and paranormal investigator Daniel MacDonald.
