SPINE-CHILLING places to visit in Lincolnshire - get yourself...

A place doesn’t have to be haunted to be haunting. If you are looking for a spooky venues this Halloween, we have a few suggestions for the genuinely supernatural and just the down right creepy. The ruins of Haverholme Priory, once a monastery, are situated four miles outside Sleaford. Some say ghostly footsteps can still be heard at the ruins. Haverholme Priory at Ewerby was built in 1139 after it was given to Gilbert of Sempringham and his Cistercian monks by Alexander, Bishop of Lincoln. Now a ruined country house on the site of the Gilbertine priory, features which survive include the stable block, a walled garden and the gates and walls to the south front of the house.
The present ruin is the remains of a Gothic building built around 1835, itself a rebuild of an earlier house dating from 1780.
