Nocton Hall is an RAF deserted hospital it was built in 1940 but wasn’t used as it was too small for an RAF hospital. In 1945 it was chosen as the local RAF Hospital for Lincolnshire (England) and gained several new buildings before opening in in 1947. By 1983 the hospital was closed and then leased to the army for the Gulf War in 1984, 35 patients were treated there during that time. In 1994 it was officially shut down and has stood empty since 1995.


A grey lady has been said to roam the halls of the building and the RAF hospital grounds are said to be haunted by the patients. It seems less likely as it was not used for a particularly long time and there were few deaths on the site.


The main ghost legend attached to Nocton Hall seems to hold a fairly stereotypical type of history. That doesn’t mean I’ve put my ban-hammer on the idea, just that it seems frequent these types come up at large old homes and hospitals.


Nocton Hall had a sobbing ghost before it burnt down, the listed ruins then housed the RAF Hospital. The ghost of a young woman guests were sometimes awoken at 4.30am to see her stood at the end of the bed. She sobbed and mumbled incoherently about a ‘develish man’ and legend has it she was a servant girl who got pregnant by the owner’s son. This did not sit well with the young man so he disposed of her.

I’ve driven past the cathedral several times and yet never ventured in, so I think its only fair to mention this one. It may have to go on to the visit list as well.¬†Lincoln Cathedral sits atop a hill that makes it visible around the city.

A 17th Century holyman has been seen climbing the steps up towards the cathedral, a witness as late as 2004 reported that there was a chain around his neck.

The bells have been pealed by unseen hands and a procession of monks have been said to haunt the cloisters.

In the 1960’s a woman named Constance committed suicide by throwing herself from the tower.

Another report is that there is an immovable bloodstain on the floor, this was from a suicide where a stained-glass window master leapt from the gallery.

The cathedral also has a carved out creature, its said he caused chaos in the cathedral until a passing angel transformed him into stone.
