From the Vicars’ Choral dining hall to Victorian slums, a bakery to a butchers, Bedern Hall is an infamous part of York’s history. Bedern Hall was a dining hall for the college from the 1390’s until the middle of the 17th century. Once a fine college home to the highest in York society, Bedern declined until it was one of the last respectable places in the city. The area housed immigrants from Ireland after the great potato famine, houses were crammed, it was overcrowded and hygiene unspeakable. Bedern was full of drunkenness’ and disease, a crime ridden red light district where decent people feared to tread. Bedern tenants fell into insanity from the pressure of living in the slum, the area was so violent with serious crimes, those who passed by the covered passageway to Bedern from Goodramgate knew to stay well clear…and so the Bedern slums had arrived.

The Hall itself is not short of scandalous stories…the intense cloistered life of the vicars was taking its toll and several had started to stray. But what of the children of Bedern? One story is of George Pimm, who ran a school and workhouse at Bedern for poor and orphaned children. Story says he neglected them so badly they died in large numbers and another story says he buried and stored children in the cupboards within the school. Numerous stories from Bedern and around the Hall are of children’s shadows seen on walls, invisible hands touching unsuspecting passers by and the sounds of screams and giggles.

***Never before has Bedern Hall been investigated***
