Haunted house revealed near Hinton Ampner

The south front at Hinton Ampner, Hampshire

A haunted history lay hidden for centuries at Hinton Ampner, in Hampshire, until technology brought the truth to light.

A geophysics survey in 2014 confirmed that just 50 yards from Hinton Ampner lie the foundations of a ‘haunted house’ dating from the 16th century.
 
Supernatural activity at the site reached a peak in the 1760s with incidents including doors slamming, the ‘rustle of silk clothing’ and ‘heavy plodding steps’ at the foot of a bed.
 
After decades of disuse the building’s eerie reputation finally led to its demolition in 1793.
