Funds needed to restore haunted Wymering Manor

Even before it was damaged by death watch beetles, Wymering Manor in Portsmouth, England was pretty creepy. Tradition holds that the 400-year-old building, once featured on the Most Haunted Live television program, is the most haunted house in England. Today the manor's worst problem is its deterioration, which has led the owners to seek to raise the UK£2.5m needed for the project.

The Wymering Manor Trust, owners of the house, have received a UK£50,000 Big Lottery grant, but need more to make the building into a "community facility - with ideas including creating a hub for social enterprises, arts performance areas or making it available for wedding receptions or corporate events."
