A TEAM of ghost hunters will descend on Smithills Hall.

Michael Smith will lead a group of parapsychologists from Hull in investigating the ghostly estate on Saturday, November 22, to mark his group Ghost Chasers’ 10th anniversary.

There are many haunting stories attached to Smithills Hall, with several visitors reporting seeing ghosts, furniture moving and doors closing of their own accord. Kat Walmsley and Jemma Brindle, both from Bolton, have played a key role in persuading Mr Smith’s team to visit Smithills Hall.

Miss Brindle said: “I finally persuaded Michael after years of nagging him to come to Bolton and investigate Smithills Hall. It’s a fantastic location with a rich history and what better way to celebrate the team’s 10th anniversary?” People can join the Ghost Chasers from 8pm until 1am on the night.
