Letchworth village is a place with a sad and haunting history. Built in 1911 as a residential institution for the disabled, this property was closed down in 1996 after many years of inadequate funding. Letchworth gained notoriety when the gross neglect of patients was made public: resident patients were found in extremely poor conditions - unclothed, unbathed, and suffering from malnutrition. While the patients were often made victims, there were also several reports of abuse among co-workers. Even sadder, majority of patients were children aged 5 to 16. As this property truly sounds like a depraved horror story, it's no wonder Letchworth has a reputation of being haunted.
