The Hauntings at the Maltings
The Maltings is the oldest inhabited building in Saffron Walden… it’s over 600 years old!
As the name suggests it’s an old malt house where cereal grain was converted into malt.
The building has been renovated and today I think it is now a private home.
But, it was once owned by the Youth Hostel Association and run as a youth hostel.
During this time a few paranormal research groups carried out vigils here and they discovered that the old building had a few ghosts within its walls.
It’s believed that most of the building is haunted but the two most active rooms are said to be the sack hoist room and the cellar!
It’s said that a ghostly little girl has been heard crying in the sack hoist room and shadowy figures have been seen in the spooky cellar.

FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: The Queen Hotel, Chester
The Queen Hotel is said to be haunted by the ghost of a little girl.
She’s said to haunt the area of a former nursery which was once situated on the second floor of the hotel.
Women guests have reported the little girl ghost has sneaked up behind them and pulled their hair before making her escape!
