1. Jenny White's Hole, The Calls, Leeds

People have claimed that a ghost haunts Lumb Hall, a grade II listed property near Drighlington. Witnesses say the ghost is a figure dressed in a Civil War uniform that makes a shuffling sound near the front door.
Guests have sighted ghosts at Hazelwood Castle. A figure dressed in black was apparently seen exiting St Margaret's courtyard, before disappearing into the yew tree. A ghostly priest is also believed to walk the library.
