Owner:
Grade II*

Wycoller is a famous Hamlet outside Colne in Lancashire only 3 miles North of Howarth; Charlotte Bronte took her walks here. Wycoller Hall was thought to be 'Ferndean Manor' in Charlotte Bronte's 'Jane Ayre' novel. The hall is said to be haunted by a spectral horseman that comes out only when there is a full moon also the ghost of a black woman wanders the grounds. Pearson House joined on to the tea-room has the ghost of the blue lady who walks through walls. Wycoller House has a poltergeist.



We visited Wycoller Hall on a very pleasant summers day. The ruins looked very romantic surrounded by wild flowers. Not at all creepy on a sunny Saturday. Too many children running among its stone-work. Definitely a spooky hot spot for wannabee ghost hunters. We shall certainly be paying the alleged  a visit one moonlit night soon.
