Charting Chipeling - Walk and Talk

 

Join the Charting Chipeling lead archaeologist, Jim Brightman of Solstice Heritage.

  Jim Brightman

  Jim's 'walk and talk' will reveal more about the archaeology of the Kiplin Hall Estate.

Charting ChipelingThe culmination of this year's Charting Chipeling project fieldwork was a series of excavations undertaken by local volunteers over the course of three weeks in July and August 2014. A series of trenches were opened investigating a range of different features around the grounds, many of which had also been identified and surveyed by volunteers earlier in the year.

As the excavations progressed a fascinating story began to emerge about the transformation of the Kiplin grounds during the 18th century, but with finds ranging in date from early prehistory to the Second World War it became clear that the scope of past activity around the Hall was much greater than originally suspected. 

The one-hour tours set off from the courtyard in front of the Hall at 10.30 am, 12.00 noon, 2 and 3.30pm.

The tours are included in admission to the Gardens and Grounds or to the Hall, Gardens and Grounds

Gardens and Grounds only - Adult £5, Concession £4, Child £2 and Family £12.75

Hall, Gardens and Grounds - Adult £8, Concession £7, Child £4, Family £23

Please bring wellingtons or other stout footwear.

Torchlight Ghost Tours

Staff at Kiplin Hall, near Scorton, are offering to take the brave on ghostly tours of the 17th century house, which regularly features on Most Haunted.

Many tales are told of sounds, smells and sightings in and around the historic Hall: the echo of footsteps and sobbing in the ground floor Drawing Room; a woman in the long, narrow servants’ tunnel; a whiff of pipe smoke in the Second World War Kitchen; a hint of cologne detected in the Upper Drawing Room and many more unexplained tales that emanate from the past.

Kiplin Hall is steeped with the history of nearly four hundred years of life and death, and many spine-tingling accounts of eerie experiences have been recorded over the years.  Join the Curator, Dawn Webster, and volunteer, Mavis Palfreman, for a fascinating tour of Kiplin Hall and extraordinary tales of its ghostly inhabitants.
