Haunting Footage Shows Chilling Tour Of Spooky Yorkshire Ghost House

Shocking new video footage has given viewers an insight into the 'most haunted house in Britain', an unassuming three-bedroom home in Pontefract, God's Own County, where a young girl was allegedly dragged upstairs and almost strangled by curtains.

Ghost hunters claim the Yorkshire home is haunted by the 'Black Monk of Pontefract', reputed to be one of the most vicious ghouls in the world. Watch the footage here:

It's said that a 17th century monk was hanged nearby for the abuse and murder of a young girl - however the wrong man was convicted of the crime, leaving him behind to wander the earth for all eternity.

If that's not scary enough, the now-vacant building has posters of 70s stars The Osmonds still hanging on the walls.

Former residents the Pritchard family were apparently terrorised by a sinister spirit after they moved in, back in the '60s.

The family claimed that the then Diane Pritchard was dragged upstairs to her bedroom and almost strangled by the curtains. Gloves also began clapping in the air during an episode of Songs Of Praise.

If you'd like to visit the house yourself, you can do so on a Haunted Happenings tour - it's been unoccupied since Jean Pritchard left to enter a nursing home six years ago.

Hull Daily Mail reporter Hannah Robinson recently visit the place. She said: "For the majority of my stay, I was able to rationalise all sounds and apparent paranormal activity.

"The scariest point of the night was walking to my car at 2.30am when a pea souper had descended over the housing estate, making it difficult when looking at the roundabout to determine what were trees and what were scary black monks.

"As far as haunted houses go, 30 East Drive is the best I have been to so far."

Strong praise indeed, although let's be honest, it's probably all a load of bullshit.
