What areas of West Hull? A few years ago I gave a free lecture at a Homeless shelter in West Hull and discussed ghost stories and mysteries associated with West Hull.

Here are my notes,

St Georges Road

History
and
Hauntings

Mike Covell



























A brief history of St Georges Road

St Georges-road made it’s first ever appearance on the 1875 Pecks Plan of Kingston upon Hull. It was a tree lined thoroughfare, linking Hessle-road, to Anlaby-road, and had only a few houses.

The St Georges Primary School was designed by William Freeman and was erected by the Newington School Board in 1881, making it one of Hull’s longest continuously running schools. It has also acquired a grade 2 listed building status!

Some Local Hauntings

St Andrews Shopping Centre
Situated off Hessle Road in an area that was once synonymous with fishing families and factories. Several stores on the precinct have had unusual activity including a store were all the stock in the stock room was moved over night. A store where the toilets could be heard to flush after hours, even though they are manual.
The strangest encounter was weeks after the site opened in 2001. A store alarm had triggered and the security team alerted the manageress and the Police, who duly turned up and began to enter the building. Upon entering the alarm was deactivated but banging could be heard at the rear of the store. A check on the CCTV revealed there was no one at the rear of the premises, so the Police concluded that there must be an intruder in the stock room.
Batons and torches at the ready they opened the stock room door and found no one within the building, stranger still as they opened the door the banging stopped almost as if something or someone had been released!
Other stores experienced the loud banging and security would train there CCTV on the location to reveal no earthly cause.
On another occasion a security guard was so convinced he had seen “something” he took to his heels and ran to the spot were the “thing” should have been, only for nothing to be psychically there! After reviewing the CCTV footage it appears the mist moved off away from him as he rounded the corner.

ASDA Hessle Road
Staff here have witnessed a little boy in the staff areas of the building, he is usually very playful and can often be heard running, laughing and having fun at other people’s expense.

Hessle Gate
Another Gate, and another tale from the period of Civil War.
This gate was the way out of the town towards the west and in particular Hessle. If one stands at the spot were the gate once stood and looks west the line of sight is were the original track would have stretched out to.
It is said that King Charles brought the Devil to Hull after being refused entry, the Devil made off with troops guarding the Hessle Gate.

Anlaby Road
A road with so much history and several haunted locations. One story comes from an unnamed property were the residents called in the local Vicar. Upon arriving he noticed broken glass strewn across the footpath and the bottom glass panel of the door smashed. He was informed the family dog had “witnessed” something and ran from the house! The dog returned in perfect health but refused to go near the scene of his sighting!

Castle Street
There is no wonder this area has activity given the past goings on here.
The Cemetery was an overspill cemetery for the Holy Trinity Church, next to it on the spot of the Comfort Friendly Hotel was one of the older Hull Jails, and standing opposite was a mortuary! It was also rumoured that there was a set of gallows along here, which may go someway to explain our next sighting.
Many years ago a friend of the family was driving along here on his way to pick up his son from the train station. He drove to the station and picked up his son before setting off back home. As he neared the roundabout on Castle Street near the cemetery he noticed a female figure in what appeared to be white clothes, her tongue was protruding, her head on a side and her eyes bulging. The driver, his wife and son saw the figure. The dog was cowering in the back seat! The family pulled over to try and get a better look but by now the apparition had vanished, but a couple of other vehicles pulled up.
They too had seen the mystery woman, one said her clothes looked like that of a nurse, the other claims she was hanging in thin air.
Whatever or whoever she was it is a very spooky place to be at night!

Hessle Road
It is not just the Haunted Hessle Road Shopping precinct which has had it’s fair share of activity, but the street itself! I remember sitting with a security guard one night when he pulled up a video he had filmed only nights earlier, the tape showed the camera panning across the site he was working and up Hessle Road. There is a point were the video stopped, and moved back to a bust stop, at the bus stop was a lady dressed entirely in white and it looked like she was wearing a wedding gown. Next on the tape we see her collapse, and the security guard run from his office to her aid. The camera never leaves her, until the guard reaches her, and she has vanished!
As the camera was aimed at her all the time, it is clear she never moves, just disappears! Who was the mystery bride, and why did she vanish? As luck would have it, the tape was recorded over and the guard eventually left the site!

Woodcock Street
Although most of the buildings have now been demolished, at one point an old male spirit was said to haunt number 16! He had been spotted on several occasions in the kitchen, sitting room and upstairs in the bedrooms. A local priest was called in to deal with the visitor and asked if the occupants knew of any history associated with the house. A neighbour suggested it was the old man who had lived there some years earlier and several previous occupants had come forward with their own sightings.

The Hessle Road Serial Killer
William Burkitt
Murdered Polly (Mary Jane Tyler) at her home on Derwent Avenue, Hessle Road on August 28th 1915, he had taken his pocket knife and cut her throat.
He was sentenced to 9 years and on November 16th 1924 he was released, by November 2nd 1925, Burkitt had struck again, killing Ellen Spencer at her home on Leslie’s Avenue, Hessle Road, Hull. He had stabbed and hit her with an hammer before trying to take his own life. Before he had killed her they had visited several public houses along Hessle Road, including Halfway House and Myton Tavern. After the murder he had gone to Waffand Arms in West Dock Street and down seven pints!
After he served his 10 year sentence he returned to sea, and bought a house on Neptune street, off Hessle Road with a lady called Emma Brookes. On the night of February 26th 1939 he and Emma had argued, she was never seen alive again. Burkitt had killed Emma with a concoction of water and over 600 aspirin tablets!
He was sentenced to Life, and he died in prison.
