Gill House, Aspatria
During World War II Gill House was used as a dormitory for the Woman’s Land Army, during this time a great deal of strange phenomena occurred, which led to an investigation by the Canon of Carlisle the Late W. J. Phythian Adams.
During the haunting an apparition was seen several times, which passed through a closed door, and at night noises could be heard along with peculiar smells, which permeated the building.
Eventually one of the girls staying there awoke and felt that she was being strangled by something unseen. One of the rooms was closed down due to the intensity of the phenomena. It seems that the disturbances died down after the building ceased to be used by the W.L.A. It has been surmised that the house harbours the spirit of a woman hater.
