About


Join us for a night of ghost hunting in this 16th century building in the heart of Stonegate, York.

There are reports the building is haunted by a poltergeist and two other spirits. Footsteps have been heard in the rooms on the ground floor and the apparition of an injured WW2 soldier has been seen in the room which was once the kitchen. Other reports have been the smell of cigar smoke in the old kitchen.

This building was a private residence, a medical practice and private meeting place. It incorporates the remains of several earlier structures on the site, and has had associations with the medical profession since the early 19th-Century, when it was owned by the Anderson family, and in the later part of the century it was home to Tempest Anderson - a volcanologist, explorer, Sheriff of the City of York and surgeon to York Castle Prison, where he treated inmates with eye diseases and injuries. He also conducted some research on the effects of prison life. York Prison was located in York Castle, which was also the site of many public executions from the 14th to the 19th century and the prison surgeon had various duties at hangings, such as examining the condemned prisoner before and after the execution, certifying the death, and sometimes performing an autopsy.

The building stands on Stonegate, which is one of the most historic streets in York and lies above the former 'Via Praetoria', York's main street during the Roman era. Artefacts from this era were discovered here. What spirits from this time line still reside within the building? Stonegate is well known to be one of the most haunted places in York, with many spooky stories and legends associated with it, where there have been sightings of ghostly children, apparitions and strange noises. Perhaps some of these spirits wander into 23 Stonegate from time to time, or maybe there are some hidden in the dark corners of the house. Romans, Vikings and Normans lived on Stonegate and Guy Fawkes is believed to have been born here. What will you uncover on your investigation?
