Justified & Ancient

Great to read of a Cornish ghost.Over forty years ago, when I was 5 or 6 years old, I went through a short period when I kept seeing a man in my bedroom “with a light on his head”, as I used to say to my parents. This happened on a few occasions over a couple of months, but then stopped and was never repeated. I remember seeing this man in the middle of the night, always a distinct outline of a man, no facial features, and a light on top of his head. The house was a modern end-of-terrace house in a Cornish village. Years later, I realised that the area was dotted with mine workngs (indeed, the neighbourhood was called ‘Wheal Rose’), though I’m not sure I would have appreciated this at the time of seeng ‘the man’. To the best of my knowledge, no one else ever claimed to have seen anything in the house or surroundings.
There are three decent Cornish hauntings in this old tv series called Extremest Ghost Stories:
One is the haunted Lands End pub, one a poltergeist in a house on a Penwith moor and another the ghost of miners near Redruth
