Paranormal Activity

For centuries Cresswell Tower have had sightings of a ghostly female apparition believed to be the daughter of the Cresswells has been seen several times on the tower and her sobs have been heard by unsuspecting visitors. Local folklore claims that the daughter had awaited the arrival of a Danish Prince that she had planned to meet him but to her horror she watched her brothers ambush the prince and kill him. The girl, stricken with grief, could not be comforted. She lost all will to live and soon afterwards died of a broken heart.

Several sightings of the girl have been seen on the roof of the tower but also reports of an unexplained voices and cold spots.


Cresswell Pele Tower was constructed in the 15th century as a defence against the Border Reivers. Unlike many of the 80 Pele towers in Northumberland, the Cresswell Tower is in a relatively good state of preservation and has recently been restored to a very high standard due to lottery funding,

Since its construction the three-storey Pele Tower has had an interesting journey through time.

The engraving shown on the Pele Tower Project websites, for example, is dated 1829 and shows the Pele Tower connected to Cresswell Hall, since demolished. The only remaining evidence of this union surviving above ground today is the front entrance of Cresswell Hall, now bricked up.

The tower is a Grade II* Listed building, a Scheduled Ancient Monument and on Historic England’s Heritage at Risk register.

It was probably built in the 15th century. The doorway on the ground floor is the original entrance and this floor was used for storage. The only way to get to the living quarters above is by a very narrow, twisty stone staircase which was designed to be easily defended.

On the first floor, there was a kitchen, living area, and garderobe (toilet). The top floor was probably used for sleeping and would have been particularly cold and damp as there are no fireplaces at this level. There are stairs from here to the parapet that runs around the top of the tower. Next to the stairs is a faint inscription which is reputed to read “William Cresswell brave hero”.

In about 1750 a grand Mansion House was built onto the side of the tower. This house was demolished in about 1845. For some unknown reason, the entrance doorway to the Mansion House was saved and it can be seen built into the field wall near to the tower.
