An evening of ghost stories
The reputedly haunted Newark Park is hosting an evening of ghost stories this October.
Michael Claydon, who lives at the National Trust estate in his role as Visitor Services Manager, will give a tour of the house with recollections of his own eerie encounters.
The evening - now in its sixth year - will conclude with ghostly readings on the haunted second floor performed by members of the Newark volunteer team. For those who are suitably chilled to the bone by these tales, a glass of mulled wine is included in the admission price.
Newark Park has long been associated with spooky sightings. It is believed to be haunted by the ghosts of the monks who brought stones from nearby Kingswood Abbey to build the house in 1550. Several published books, including Ghosts Mysterious Tales from the National Trust by Sian Evans, have sections dedicated to Newark.
Michael Claydon says, Weve had various ghost research groups here over the years, and Im looking forward to recounting my own experiences to visitors at this ever-popular event.
The event takes place on October 27 at 7pm. Tickets cost 8 and can be booked on 0844 249 1895.
