Friday 13th Ghost Hunt at the haunted Mansion

About this event

Ghost hunts at the haunted St Johns Mansion can be intense with the ghostly cellars and eerie attic this old house is a real must for anyone wanting to be part of a ghost hunt. The location is steeped in History and has a very dark and untold past ! In the 1970`s workmen were digging out foundations on the front of the property, when work came to complete stop as part of a human skull was unearthed. Since then Paranormal activity has been apparent. On previous ghost hunts here at the old house strange unexplained green bolts of light have been witnessed coming from ceilings along with a very uneasy feeling and sense when entering the cellars. Door handles and door knobs have been heard opening when nobody is present Footsteps are heard in the empty eerie school room. Are you ready to be part of this ghost hunt in the heart of Warwick.

History Of St Johns Mansion

St Johns Mansion has had a history spanning almost 900 years, In the mid 12th century, during the reign of Henry II, the land on which St. John's House stands was given to the establishment of the Hospital of St. John the Baptist. The hospital was brought into being by William de Beaumont, then Earl of Warwick. This hospital provided two purposes: To help the local poor and ill; and to provide casual overnight boarding and food to impoverished travellers such as pilgrims. The Hospital of St. John the Baptist was one of two such hospitals in the town of Warwick at the time. The other was the Hospital of St. Michael, founded with the sole purpose of providing help and respite to those in the parish suffering from leprosy. Of both hospitals, only the chapel building of St. Michael still stands.

In 1291's taxation, the Hospital was noted to own a dovecote worth 2 shillings. Additionally, the carucate of land owned by the Hospital was valued at 10 shilling per year. In 1337, protection was granted to the hospital's brethren and their attorneys for the collection of alms at churches. At this time it was suggested that some building renovation was necessary.

It is known that in 1610 the site comprised four standing buildings, including a gatehouse topped with crenulations. The largest of the three other buildings has crosses at the roof's apex, suggesting its religious use as the site's chapel. At the time the hospital site also included a cemetery - remains have often been dug up during refurbishment or remodelling works on the House. The first recorded case was in the 1830s when work was being undertaken in the kitchen garden. In 1987, two workmen digging to the Colten End front of St. John's Court flats discovered two skulls.

In 1791, the building was rented out for the first time by the Earl of Warwick for public use, with the intent of converting it into a school. The school, then known as St John's Academy, was founded by William T Fowler and was set up as a school for "Young Gentlemen" (as advertised on the hand-bill[6] Throughout the life of the school, its cohorts changed frequently. In 1828, the daughters of William Fowler, then running the school, changed it to a school for girls. It was then reverted in 1845 under a Mr. Townsend. Then it returned to a girls' school in 1884, which continued until the very end of the 19th Century. In the later part of the school's life, as money became tighter, the school restricted itself to the lower part of the house, with upper rooms being leased out to local artists and other public figures, with their studios being open for public viewing. The school was declared bankrupt in 1900 and closed down.
