All Hallows Eve brings Victorian horrors to Wightwick Manor

A young visitor in Halloween costume

The days before the feast of All Hallows have always been a time to remember the dead. This year for October half term, we'll be introducing you to the pesky pests which are trying to eat our collection and hunting for pumpkins to help Winnie the Wightwick Witch find her missing broom.

" All houses wherein men have lived and died are haunted houses. Through the open doors the harmless phantoms on their errands glide, with feet that make no sound upon the floors. "
- From Haunted Houses by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Who's living at Wightwick Manor?
