Your overnight ghost hunt at this old haunted hall could doubt that this location is seriously haunted! Join the team for this ghost hunting event as we invite you to step outside your comfort zone after dark and be part of this unique and intense ghost hunting experience. 

History of Vane Tempest Hall 

Vane Tempest Hall is located in Gilesgate, Durham, Durham, England. It is currently used as a local community centre but was known as the Gilesgate Militia Barracks. According to various historians, there were two very different dates when this building was constructed.

Vane Tempest is a listed building, built-in 1851 and used by the Durham military until it was converted into a Community Association Centre.”

The majestic Vane Tempest Hall has had a chequered history dating to the 1860s. Since then, it has been home to several Army units and even doubled as a smallpox hospital in 1884. The Barracks stables were used as the smallpox hospital, including a “dead room” for storing deceased bodies. As can be expected, this area is considered highly haunted, and many have reported paranormal experiences while working in the buildings.

The parade grounds are haunted by a militia soldier who accidentally blew himself up by a cannon while shooting it on the parade grounds. Those who have seen his spectre have found it an upsetting experience.

An ancient burial ground is on the other side of the barracks grounds wall. Accounts of a “White Lady” floating through the wall and walking the parade grounds have been made by several people.
