Stockport Workhouse

Now permanently closed, this building once used to be a hospital. One ghost that has shown up in photograph is that of a doctor with a mask over his face. Many other ghosts are reported including a woman who was either a nurse or a nun, and some darker energy yet to be identified.

  1. I went investigating there back in 2014, I also have seen the doctor patrolling the halls. Many other minor things have happened like orbs and change in temperatures. There was a very distinct feeling which made me no longer want to stay in the hospital. As I left the premises, I looked up to one of the windows and a very distinct figure of a little girl in a white robe was standing in the frame, staring out of the window
