Yorkshire, England United Kingdom (PressExposure) October 29, 2011 -- Tettenhall Towers in Wolverhampton is a brand new location for Simply Ghost Nights. Tettenhall Towers dates back to the early part of the eighteenth century and was built by Thomas Pearson is 1771. In 1851 it was bought by Colonel Thomas Thorneycroft who was a very eccentric man and has been spotted many times at the Towers, unhappy that there are people in his home.
Its documented that scared builders have fled the property and not returned because of what they've seen or heard!! The Thorneycroft's, Colonel Thorneycroft bought and sold property on a grand scale but preferred Tettenhall Towers to the rest. Colonel Thorneycroft was also an eccentric of the highest order, he was known for pushing his butlers off the top of the towers to test various flying machines of his own creation.
G B Thorneycroft, the colonel's father, was the company founder who also became Wolverhampton's first mayor in 1848. But it was his son, the buyer of Tettenhall Towers, who became arguably one of the village's most eccentrically famous residents.
It is reported that a shadowy figure is seen moving in the building then, disappearing into thin air as though it wasn't there. Bizarre incarnate voices have been heard from empty rooms. Does the eccentric Colonel still wander around his former home?
The Colonel was variously described as a man whose fertile imagination, individual point of view, broad and ready wit and energetic language meant that he would not readily be forgotten.
Tettenhall Towers, now part of Tettenhall College, is situated in Mount Road Tettenhall. The Towers dates back to the early part of the eighteenth century when a General Thomas Pearson, a returning Indian nabab bought land in Tettenhall at the site of the Holly Bush Inn.
So come and join the Simply Ghost Nights team as we attempt spirit communication at this fantastic location.
