Hi

In around 2001-2004 Most Haunted did an investigation in a house in Bidston Village.

I have searched for this episode online and can't find it?

Does anyone know if and why this particular episode hasn't been aired?

Regards

Are you sure it wasn't the Tom Slemen and Richard Felix programme in 2002? The Ghost Tour of Britain.

Hi Granny

Thanks for this information; I wonder can I get this on you tube?

Recently there's been a few shorts of Most Haunted on their official site and they have been great to watch. Hopefully they will have another one to watch this weekend too.

Kind regards

I don't seen to be able to find it on youtube or anywhere else for that matter. However, DD is the man of the moment, he might be able to trace it . Send him a message.

I can't find it but here is a bigger write-up ....

Quote
Church Farmhouse stands in the centre of Bidston, a small village on the Wirral - the Merseyside stockbroker belt, just a few miles from Liverpool city centre. In keeping with the village, it is a perfectly preserved building, just opposite the village church. Bidston today, however, is surrounded by suburban estates.

To its current owners, the farmhouse had always been a curious mishmash. Crammed into its insides are 26 rooms and 13 staircases - creating a labyrinthine interior.

When Jane and Roger O'Brien bought the old farmhouse, 12 years ago, it was completely derelict and they did all the restoration work themselves - which gave them ample opportunity to uncover some of the contradictions of the building for themselves.

For example, the original fireplace had had five designs layered over the original, altogether more gaunt version that Jane finally revealed.

It was here, she thought, lay the greatest mystery - the fireplace seemed medieval.

But how, with such an elegant facade, could the original building have been medieval?

Perhaps the first owner had simply cannibalised spare parts from other disused and derelict properties?

Despite the elegant proportions, another bizarre aspect was that none of Church Farmhouse's windows are level - and there are plenty of small windows serving the myriad rooms in the upper parts of the house.

One interesting detail was in the pigsties. These were designed with some care, not to say style, in keeping with the seventeenth century design. The relative grandeur of the pigs' accommodation reflected their more elevated status at the time.

After sizing up different aspects of the house, however, it becomes clear that it was originally medieval.

The real breakthrough came in one of the bedrooms, which has an original medieval timber frame supporting the ceiling.

The County Records Office in Chester furnished proof, through the Kingston Estate Survey of 1665, that a medieval building had stood on the site before the farmhouse was rebuilt in the 1600s.

The trio of detectives found the person who transformed the building into its present shape, one Robert Wilson, who was a nonconformist and rebel who prospered under Cromwell's ascendancy, but subsequently landed in hot water as a dissenter on James II's return to the throne.

In 1683, Church Farm was searched for weapons and, in 1685, he was up before Chester Crown Court, as a "person dangerous to the government".

The team was also able to track down a copy of the will made by Robert's wife Ellen. That too grants a fascinating picture of life in this household as the eighteenth century begins. Among the items she bequests is a tobacco box, to her son Matthew.

The program illustrates to any house owner with a question about the history of their property how much of the evidence can be pieced together - both from the architectural detail and the local records offices.

Hi DD
Thanks so much for taking the time to post the above, I love History and the piece above was most interesting.
I not only love watching Most Haunted for the antics of the ghost hunters and their great characters but because they often start with and include some History about the property they are investigating.
I went into this house in 1967 alongside other children, just before we went into St Oswald's Church to be confirmed.
Regards
