Once used to be a busy factory known as Wolsey. This now redundant warehouse looks very much the haunted location you would expect.

It used to have around 350 people that worked around the clock 7 days a week to keep some of the biggest stores filled with the latest fashion in the sock industry.

Wolsey had been a leading hosiery business in Leicester for the best part of 100 years.

It was originally spread across 3 sites but amalgamated into the one site in the 1980`s

During the life time of the abbey meadow site there have been reports of ghostly activity by many different employees.

There was one area that was a long corridor which people had witnessed a figure appear and disappear in front of them. This apparition would either vanish or walk through a wall leading into the dye house.

There were cold spots even though it was full of machinery which generated heat.

People told of strange noises at night in the pressing rooms and the counter room.
These were noises which resembled dragging of something heavy.

People even said they had seen mists in places.

I went for a look around at night. But the place was so frightening that i decided to leave it until the day time to take the photos.

I once worked here myself so I knew what I was letting myself in for I knew the way around and I still found that alone it was too scary to venture into.

This will be one atmospheric building to investigate if we get the chance.
