St Luke's Church - Known as the burnt-out Church, St Lukes is reputed to be one of Liverpool's most haunted locations. During 1991 a young child called Abbey, who was 6 at the time, was abducted by the spirit of an old woman, who took her inside the Abbey, which today, as then, is just a shell. As the child described the interior of the church the spirit apparently took Abbey back in time. Abbey was returned to the present, unharmed, by another spirit, a tall top-hatted man who, accordingly to eye witness accounts was leading her out of the Church by the hand. The man returned to the Church and disappeared!

Lydiate Abbey.

St Catherine's Chapel locally known as 'Lydiate Abbey' was built around 1500 for the private worship of the Ireland family who held the Lydiate Lordship from 1410-1673. In Henry VIII reign the chapel was destroyed due to the prohibited practice of the Catholic religion. Reports of paranormal activity in the chapel is ripe, as the legend tells the chapel was used for sacrifices, the sacrifices were children. From my own experiences and listening to other peoples there are sounds of babies crying and a hooded figure strolling across the tower towards the graveyard this figure is believed to be a priest, and from experiences he will show himself and make noises and movement to show he is present.
