Britain’s Most Haunted Locations

Britain’s Most Haunted Locations

Haunted houses, scary spirits and cursed objects are all things any spooky fan will be all too familiar with. Now if you’re a true spooky fan, you may want to pack a bag and go exploring across Britain, which is home to many spine-tingling locations. This week we take a look at Britain’s most haunted locations for spooky people for the spooky holidays!

Village of Pluckley, Kent

Pluckley Village was named the most haunted village in Britain by the Guinness Book of World Records in 1989. Between 12 and 16 ghost sightings have been reported in the village, including a screaming man, a highwayman who appears at Fright Corner, a schoolmaster found hanged by a group of children and an old woman who used to sit on a bridge smoking. They’re definitely not short on any ghosts in Pluckley.

Pendle Hill , Lancashire

Pendle Hill is reportedly the home to twelve witches from the 17th century. The witches were accused of murdering up to ten people which were brought to trial for in the infamous Lancashire Witch Trials where ten of the witches were found guilty and executed by hanging. Maybe the witches have got their cauldrons boiling and ready for your visit this Halloween.

The Ancient Ram Inn, Gloucestershire

The inn was built on the site in 1145, but an ancient Pagan burial ground is said to have been in the same place 5,000 years ago, two for the price of one. A popular legend from this location is that a witch burned at the stake still haunts one of the rooms of the house to this day. Others say they can see a blurry figure on the stairway. Fancy paying the dark figure a little visit?

Cannock Chase, West Midlands

Cannock Chase has become known as one the UK’s most active paranormal hotspots, most famously known for its werewolf sightings. It is rumoured that the werewolves prowl around the outskirts of Stafford. Who even needs a full moon these days?

Woodchester Mansion, Gloucestershire

Located in the National Trust’s Woodchester Park, the mansion appears normal from the outside, but inside there are several rooms and entire floors missing. Some visitors claim to have been attacked by ghosts, others have collapsed, while women who have been to the bathroom reported seeing a floating head. Other supernatural beings such as the ghost of an old woman and a little girl have also been spotted. Woodchester is definitely far from being shy of a few unwanted guests.

Highgate Cemetery, London

In a letter to the Hampstead and Highgate Express on February 6 1970, a vampire sighting was reported by an onlooker who had noticed it when passing the cemetery. He said he saw “a grey figure” and asked if others had seen anything similar. On February 13, several people replied describing a variety of ghosts said to haunt the cemetery or the adjoining Swains Lane. The ghosts were described as a tall man in a hat, a spectral cyclist, a woman in white, a face glaring through the bars of a gate, a figure wading into a pond, a pale gliding form, bells ringing, and voices calling.

Wharram Percy, Yorkshire

An archaeological discovery revealed mutilated and burned bones of at least 17 people were found buried in a pit outside the deserted medieval village of Wharram Perry in Yorkshire, now an English Heritage site. It’s thought the mutilations were carried out on the bodies after their death, out of fear that the dead might rise and walk among the living.

Barmston Drain, Hull

There is documentation that can be found about a half-man, half-dog creature that had been spotted stalking the banks of the city’s Barmston Drain. There has also been a report about a tall and hairy beast attacking a German Shepherd and then jumping 8ft over a fence with its prey still in its jaws. Further sightings followed including a woman in a car with friends who claimed she saw a beast with a human head walking towards them on two legs.

 

St Osyth, Essex

The Cage, in St Osyth, was used as a prison to hold people accused of witchcraft in the 16th century. The prison is known for the imprisonment of Ursula Kemp and other women who were accused of witchcraft and hung in 1582. In 1921, the skeletons of two women were found in a St Osyth garden. The cage to this day is said to be extremely active with spirits of a jailer, a young child, a suicide victim, and, of course, Ursula Kemp.
