Llanthony Secunda Manor | Paranormal weekend
Date:Friday 10th November-Sunday 12th November 2017
This event is only open to 12 guests and bedrooms will be given out on a first come first serve basis.
This will be our second year at Llanthony Secunda Manor, Caldicot and you really could not wish for a more beautiful place to relax and explore the paranormal.
This medieval marvel certainly boasts an impressive past, and the current owner has done a superb job of restoring it back to it’s former glory.
Our paranormal weekends at Llanthony Secunda Manor are extremely popular, and when you see what the weekends itinerary includes, it’s not hard to see why!
Llanthony Secunda Manor was first built in the 12th century. It started out life as a grange building. Only the eastern range was built at this time and it was probably only of two floors with a high pitched roof and a central fire on the first floor.
In the 15th century an addition was put onto the manor. It was common at this time for kitchens to be added to houses having previously been in separate buildings due to the risk of fire. By the 15th century though fireplaces were common and often kitchens were added inside buildings as occurred at Llanthony. Above the kitchen they added the dormitory rooms for the monks their were at least 3 rooms added in this block above the kitchen. Each of these rooms had 4 small windows with prayer seats, a central fire, stair tower and garderobe. This addition is relatively unaltered from its original use and today it can clearly be seen how it was intended for the monks use. The windows help us to date this extension. By the 15th century glass was available and windows began to be made smaller so that they could be glazed. The tiny windows in this extension as well as the kitchen addition clearly place it in the 15th century.
We know that Llanthony Secunda Manor carried on as a working grange until the dissolution of the monasteries when Henry VIII took possession.
Reported paranormal activity:
The sound of chanting quite often rings from the bedrooms, which once housed the monks of the manor.
It has been reported that recent renovations of the property have started a series of unexplained activity, including items being moved around the manor, guests being touched by unseen hands and full bodied apparitions of a lady in white and also a monk.
