Description: Come and join Paranormal Pastimes on a paranormal investigation at Merley House Wimborne.
We will be investigating this lovely building .. from the beautiful rooms upstairs to the very spooky cellars. You will be using a variety of equipment plus your own senses to see if you can capture evidence of the people that lived and worked in this house in years gone by.
With a history of being a family home, being requisitioned by the War office, and its past links to the slave trade it is not surprising that staff at the House regularly report Ghostly Encounters and visitors to the house report seeing mysterious figures who just walk through walls!.
Merley House 18th century Georgian Manor House belonging to the Lords of Canford.
Ralph Willett purchased the estate and is responsible for the building of the larger and much grander house we see today.
Willett's great enthusiasm for architecture led to the design of the three storey building, rendered on the north side in Portland stone, featuring three balconies and four ionic pilasters supporting the entablature. In 1772 two wings were added one of which contained the new library as Willetts vast collection had outgrown the existing library in the house. Unfortunately these two wings were demolished in the early 1800s following an auction of the books and paintings they housed by the then owner, John Willett.
