Valentines Mansion

Clementina Ingleby, who lived here in the 1860s and was left of "unsound mind" after an operation is said to still lurk here. There are also sounds of a crying baby, thought to be one of a pair of twins who were smothered by their mother in the 1920s when she had a fit of depression. Footsteps have also been heard. During a ghost hunt, a staff member said she could feel someone pulling at her hair and some participants claimed to see a mist around a door. The photographer for a newspaper said she felt a hand touching her face and playing with her hair - and then experienced a pressure bearing down on her chest, "as if someone was pinning her down."
