I remember when I used to live in Morley there was a rumour about the old Morley Hall been haunted by the ghost of a 'grey lady', several decades ago the place was a maternity hospital for Morley's expectant mothers, and I know of a few ladies who claimed to have seen this ghostly spectre while they were staying there.

Also there are tales of eerie apparitions all between Adwalton Moor and Howley Hall ruins - terribly wounded soldiers from the civil war era seen / heard wandering across the old battlefield area.

I can remember that as a youngster we'd hang around in Spring Wood just between Morley and Gildersome, more known to Secret Leeds'ers as the site of the Gildersome Tunnel entrance, we were told that the Gildersome Tunnel was haunted because it had been the site of a terrible railway accident and that on dark winters nights the screams of agony from the dying and injured passengers could be heard from the entrance to the tunnel in its lonely woodland spot.

However years later I found this to be a complete fabrication probably made up to keep kids away from the place, but it still scared us silly when playing out in them woods late at night.

Dear Mr BRUNO
 
Thank you for your email regarding the Leodis image ID: 2002327_283449.
 
I have checked a map and you are right - the houses seen in the background of the picture are definitely those in Hollyshaw Walk so I have now corrected the information on the website.
 
Thank you very much for your help,
 
With kind regards,

Hello jonleeds...
Yes,Howley Hall ruins always held some sort of mysticism among people,particularly 30/40 yrs ago.....all sorts of stories abounded then.As kids,we were always fearful of Howley tunnel.....it was v.dark,quite a long curve,quiet yet ironically,noisy with water dripping from various places,damp,cold,atmospheric tunnel with a smell and personality all of it's own !
Yet still we went through......!
        
I'm not just anybody,I am sommebody !

I believe in all this gs supernatural and the closet I've been was living in a house my husband and I lived in on daffy avenue in chiral, Morley. Which is built on an old plague cemetery. We had had various things happen like the TV being on when we had turned it off and gone to bed and things moving or hearing voices.

But the worst thing was when we were moving out and my husband was at the hospital visiting his mum. I was in the back bedroom hoovering before we moved and the hoover switched off. I turned round to see if my hubby was there and no one was there. I checked the plug and it hadn't come lose and the switch was switched on. The house had not had any electric faults whilst we were there.

But I also heard a bang and the room went ice cold. I walked out of the room and back in and it felt normal again.

The house when we went to look round it felt warm and inviting. But by the time we moved out it felt empty and it was very sad.
