Now an art centre for youth and young adults the Carclew house has long been claimed to be haunted. In 1908 Langdon Bonython bought the house and gave it the Carclew name. It’s said that the resident spirit is that of Langdon Bonython’s wife… that he threw her out of the window at the top floor of the house, but the fall didnt kill her so he threw her out once more. Those who visit the art center have claimed to see, feel and hear the presence of a young girl especially on the top floor where she fell.
