Workington Hall (or Curwen Hall) is a ruin near Workington, Cumbria, England, Britain. It was formerly a castle-like dwelling built in 1379 by the Curwen family. It was originally only made up of the small tower in the north-west corner, but with funding from the Curwens' good friend King Richard the Third it was developed into quite a castle. The Curwen family were barons, they owned the whole Workington Area. They came originally from Galloway and Northumberland. But because of their useful support of the king during the Crusades they were rewarded with this piece of land
The Curwens are the only family to have ever lived in this building, They abandoned it in 1929 leaving it to ruin. Due to floods and general lack of maintenance, the hall became ruined. In 1970 however they decided to preserve it, so that people could visit it. Even to this day however, Workington Hall is home to a haunting phenomenon.
