  4. I actually went on a "ghost hunt" here last year for a cheap laugh. The guys behind urban decay actually turned up to do a explore bearing in mind this was at 11pm so was a little strange, they showed us that video and can say from my experience sitting in the rooms calling out i would say it's not haunted and they probs faked that video. The only bit I would say is maybe active is the "prison" part I heard whistling.haha

  8. History.... Dr Mostafa Morsy, a specialist of addiction treatment, spent around £300,000 bringing the former Heckington Manor up to scratch and opening a successful private practice for the treatment of alcoholism in the late 1980s. In 2003, the government had drastically cut funding for this sort of treatment in favour of drug treatments and Dr Morsy had no other option other than to close the doors of his pride and joy. During it’s operation, the clinic treated over 2000 patients; one of whom gave an interview to the BBC upon hearing of it’s planned closure. ‘Tom Edwards had a drinking problem for 30 years before coming to the clinic. It cost him his career in the televison industry and many of his friends. He said: "I was going round in a kind of vicious circle. When I crossed the threshold of the Heckington clinic my battle with the bottle was done - and the bottle had won - I had given in.“’ Since his treatment he has been alcohol-free for three years.

  10. The History.... Nocton Hall is a historic listed building in the village of Nocton, in Lincolnshire, England. Originally constructed for the Ellys family, it burnt down in 1834 and was rebuilt in 1841 for the first Earl of Ripon, who lived at the steward’s house in Nocton while the house was being built. The US Army’s 7th General Hospital was based at Nocton Hall during World War Two. RAF Nocton Hall was a 740 bed hospital under RAF control from the 1940s until 1984. It was used by civilians and forces personnel until 1984, when it was leased to the USAF as a United States Air Force wartime contingency hospital. During the Gulf War, over 1,300 US medical staff were sent to the Hall and many were billeted at RAF Scampton. Fortunately only 35 casualties had to be treated. In its later days 13 American personnel remained to keep the hospital serviceable. RAF Nocton Hall was handed back to the Her Majesty’s Government by the USAF on 30 September 1995. In October 2009 Nocton Hall was listed in The Victorian Society top 10 endangered buildings list in England and Wales. The Explore.... Thanks for looking
