There is supposedly a poltergeist in the kitchen, but it does little more than rearrange the pots and pans. The visions of monks are one of the most commonly reported phenomena. In the Priests' Room upstairs, a man with shoulder length hair has been seen to walk outside the window. That would not seem to be too unusual until you consider that the window is about twelve feet above the ground.
One of the rooms considered to be most haunted is Eleanor's room. This room belonged to Eleanor Singleton, who was reportedly kept captive there for over 12 years and died/or was murdered there at the age of 20. Visitors have claimed to be overcome by a deep feeling of sadness when in this room. Some also smell lavender and feel phantom tugs at their clothing and some have even fainted. Orbs have been seen by many visitors to the property, sometimes only visible to one or two members of the group.
On Christmas day 1980, Gerald Main and ghost hunter Terence Whitaker spent time at the Hall in a vigil and recorded rapping sounds emanating from one of the priest's hiding hole. At the time of the knocking noises they recorded a significant decrease in temperature and saw an 'indefinable shape' move across the floor.
In 1985, sounds of bricks being moved were recorded by a visitor in the Priest's Room, which seemed to originate in the Priest's hiding hole. He peered within and saw part of a human hand moving one of the bricks. As he watched, the hand stopped moving and disappeared. This witness later managed to capture the sounds of footsteps on tape and a shadowy form on film. Later bricks were found scattered on the floor of the Chapel on the ground floor.
During January of 1996, a team from the Northern Anomalies Research Organisation investigated Chingle Hall. During the visit one member of the group managed to capture two photographs of a blue/white light which appeared on and near the oak-beamed ceiling. What is notable is that the taking of the photographs and the light were witnessed by a several people in the house. When tape recorders were used in an investigation, sounds were heard and recorded within the Priest's Room but nothing was heard or recorded on the cassette in the passageway outside.
