Do you have a link to the blogposts?I live near Nuneaton and there’s an old record shop that has had weirdness attached to it for years. I believe it recently made an issue of the FT.
A previous owner wrote a very interesting series of blog posts about her experiences in the shop. I’ve (shamefully) only been in a couple of times, and the upper floors definitely do have an ‘off vibe’ to them, but I think a lot of Victorian properties do.
Great, thank you! I'll look forward to reading those once I've got work out of the way.
You need to get over there!Found this from my town, I wasn't aware of this story before. I'm familiar with the area where it was seen but it bears no resemblance to the place in the articles - lots of redevelopment over the years, just some street names remain.
When I was looking at some old maps I realised that many of my ancestors from my dad's side of the family lived in that area at the time of the incidents. If I remember there were mills in that area that had a reputation for being haunted. Will have to do some digging.Been there lots of time, it's mainly housing now. No sign of any quarry or spooky person.
Can't you chat up some of the residents there? Any "quirks" in the lodging that they could report on?The charmingly named Coffin Mill wasn't too far from the location of the quarry sightings and was a short walk from my workplace. Passed it many times - it was converted into flats.
The English Civil war created the only officially recognised ghosts in BritainThe slaughter and butchery of the American Civil War was devastating. Why anyone would want a civil war is beyond me.
A little off topic, I know, but the idea makes me so sad.
May have been a pervert when he was alive.Someone was telling me a tail or two the other day of ghostly happenings
one was of a man that would come into her back yard the type with a high wall
and a solid wooden gate and stand staring through the window, he was
dressed in a long overcoat and jeans, how do you know it's a ghost I ask
thinking we have a pervert on the loose here,
"Because he walks through the gate without opening it"
Now I have been in that house many times and not seen a thing but will keep
my eyes open in future.
I've had the same 'what ghost?' responses since I left Paul so I'd be tempted to think I imagined it all other than the 'hard evidence' (the suggested shape of a shadow woman taken on my friends phone which he showed me but then he managed to accidently delete because it was a new phone) .. a non peripheral shape of a definite woman walked across my direct line of vision with the texture most accurately compared to vanta black paint one night after I saw that picture. Mediums have postulated it's the spirit of a woman from the first world war era who was fond of a bell boy called Billy, they thought she was confusing me for him. If you want to pursue this further, the top people there now are Callum and Jo. The last time I asked Callum, he told me he hadn't experienced anything weird.
