About this location

The old Stanley Tools Factory, formally the Industry Works of James Arscott Chapman, dates back to 1857 from what records show. It was heavily bombed during the war and people took refuge around and in the buildings that were once there. The site was acquired by The Stanley Works in 1937 and the newer office block built in the 1950's on land that had been using for housing and an old church.

In 2008 Stanley left the site after merging their factories into one location in Hellaby. Since then the building has been slated for conversion into small business units but until then the location is ripe for ghost hunts.

The main entity that is believed to haunt the factory is 'Old Man Chapman' A tall, slim chap, wearing a long coat. He has been seen by the caretaker on numerous occasions on site as well as myself on two occasions.
People have noted the feeling of having a coat placed on them when walking across the bridge connecting buildings as well as the feeling of being watched and pushed out.
When on the second floor, near the 2nd middle stairwell people have often heard the sound of dragging above and heavy footsteps. Upon investigation they found nothing moved nor seen, when returning back down a floor they would again hear the same sounds as before.
In the 1950s office block, people have reported feeling that they are being watched. There have been ghostly sightings, but usually it is when people are not paying attention. People have described someone observing them before walking off, usually only the lower half of the body is seen. This is every Ghost hunters Paradise with its feeling of eariness. All your fears will be challenged on this event! This event isn't for the faint hearted, Do you dare to Join the Shadows of the Night team as we take on the Stanley Tool Factory?
