Jacobs Well is the parish room for the Priory Church of the Holy Trinity, Micklegate, York.  It was originally a late medieval house consisting of an open hall with a two-storey cross-wing on the East (Trinity Lane) side. It is an unusual medieval building of a style not found elsewhere in York and is Grade I listed.  Why not join us on our investigations to see what activity we can find at this incredible location.

Following a trial event in 2022 we were amazed by the activity we discovered, including a “Class A” evp, taps, knocks and footsteps.  Certainly one not to be missed!

First built in the late 15th century, Jacobs Well became an inn during the 1600s.  It was acquired by the Church in 1904, but by the 1980s significant renovation work was required to ensure its continued survival. The Church Council set up a management committee to manage the building and make it available for hire to the public.

Holy Trinity Priory was established around the year 1100 by Benedictine monks from Marmoutier in France, on the site of a pre-Conquest church mentioned in the Domesday Book. The old church was rebuilt at this time, though remnants are incorporated into the present church, which dates from after a great fire in 1137, and has been much altered since.

It is no surprise the building is haunted, with the large number of alterations over the years.  Floors added, Stairs removed, front door entrance shifted etc. etc. and with such a long history to fall back on, we know the spirits will want to tell their own stories.
