About the event
HISTORY OF BORWICK HALL
Borwick Hall is a 16th Century manor house. The manor of Borwick is mentioned in the Domesday Book as being part of the estates of Roger of Poitou but the oldest parts of the building still in existence date from the 14th century when a pele tower was built on the site. It was bought c. 1590 by Roger Bindlosse. After the Second World War during which the hall was used as a military base, the estate was sold to Lancashire Youth Clubs Association and later passed into the ownership of Lancashire County Council. The Hall was used for exterior shots for the children's TV programme The Ghosts of Motley Hall which ran on Granada TV from 1976 to 1978. The Hall stood in for the fictional Motley Hall, built in 1577, home to the Uproar family over the centuries, but now home to a group of ghosts from different eras.
GHOSTS OF THE HALL
The oldest and most beautiful part of Borwick Hall is the central pele tower, which dates from the 14th century. The White Lady who haunts the tower is young and pretty but looks sad and distracted. Perhaps she is searching for a way out of the tower, where she was imprisoned by her father when she refused to marry the man he had chosen to be her husband. Her name is commonly thought to be Elizabeth Whittington, daughter of Thomas – although the only Thomas Whittington connected to the Hall had no daughter of that name. Whatever her name, the story goes on to tell how she stubbornly refused to agree to her father’s demands to marry a man she did not love and as her father refused to release her from the tower until she agreed, she starved to death.
The Scottish soldier Charlie MacDougal is believed to have died in the grounds in 1745 following the infighting between the Scots returning from England with Bonnie Prince Charlie.
