Hawthorn House and Market Street - Feedback from Facebook Discussion

January 2015


Andrew Sanders As I say I'm not a believer but there was something in the papers back in 93 I think when the 3 story flats were built on the right side of Chalons Way, a couple from Hull were the first people into the new flat which was built roughly in line with Derby Street. They apparently moved out within 2 weeks due to unusual activity and they had no former knowledge of Hawthorn House. A coach from Ilkeston Town FC also lived in the house to the right of Jacksons Chippy and he has a few stories to tell also of his house. They're all within 30-40 yards of where Hawthorn House stood.


John Burns Jnr When I was at Hallcroft, we used to cross over the road when we got to this house, if we came out of the gate at the back of the art block. (at the end of Derby St)


Sue Turner I've read about this before, I asked my dad about it as he went to hallcroft.


Peter Simpson My wife lived on derby st as a kid an she told me about the woman running to her house saying that there was no one in the house n someone trying to drown her in the sinkby ducking her head under water . Makes u wonder


Charlotte Kelk I remember reading about this house in the 80s in the ilkeston advertiser, it was derelict then as was a school on the next street, we used to dare each other to go in them


nikki Williams I was mobile hairdressin back. before all the houses came down - I went.to.do a job.down.there there.were.only about 2 houses with folks.still.in.them.waitin.to move.it.was.very eery


Margaret Fisher We used to avoid the house when we were at Hallcroft. Heard the same tale back in the 60's.

I remember my sister telling me about the hauntings when I was a little girl. She used to work at Rutland Garments. I started at Hallcroft in 1958 and the tales were very well known by then.


Kay McMahon My husband lived on market st until the late 90's, the school was open for business until 1997 when it closed, and most of market st was/is haunted. I have witnessed a few odd things on there.x


Roger Stephenson, football coach who lived to the right of Jacko's chippy also got spooked whilst living there.


Gemma Robinson The school was haunted, they say the ghost can be seen still on chalons way
