A456, Hagley, Worcestershire
Near the Badger Sett pub the figure of a man in uniform similar to that of a 17th century Cavalier has startled motorists by running across the road. One driver who encountered him said he ran across two lanes before coming to a halt in the central reservation. He then dodged diagonally across the next lane, forcing the driver to slam on his brakes – his car went straight through the figure.
Beachy Head, Eastbourne, East Sussex
Beachy Head has been the scene of numerous accidents over the years. It has seen numerous ghosts. Records state that a mysterious black monk has been seen in the area. Most reports have him standing at the foot of the cliffs, beckoning to those at the top of the cliffs to jump off.
Chingle Hill: Goosnargh, Lancashire
Father John Wall, born in the Hall in the 17th century, was hanged for heresy in Worcester in 1679. His head was taken to France but is believed to have eventually been brought back and buried at the Hall. It is said that if it is ever found then the hauntings will stop. Visitors have reported noises, apparitions and objects being moved. The most haunted room is the bedroom of Eleanor Singleton who was murdered at the hall.
Deane Road Cemetery, Liverpool
After the cemetery fell into disrepair during the 18th Century residents of the road have reported hearing children’s screams in the middle of the night, doors slamming unexpectedly and furniture seemingly rearranging itself. Some of the older houses on the street which may have been involved in keeping slaves during the slave trade in the latter part of the 19th Century have experienced screams, scratching sounds, loud footsteps, doors shutting and locking and supposed possession.
Epping Forest (Hangmans Hill)
The famous highwayman Dick Turpin had a hideout in the forest; he lived for many years in a cave at High Beach. He and his partner Tom King would rob most people who would pass by. Because of its proximity to the city of London, the forest is also a notorious burial area for murder victims. Another reason why this forest is notorious is because of its ghost stories. People have reported apparitions, lights and there’s even a spot called the Hangman’s Hill at High Beach where some claims that when put in neutral, your car is going to be pulled uphill.
Fyvie Castle, Scotland
A story is told that in 1920 during renovation work the skeleton of a woman was discovered behind a bedroom wall. On the day the remains were laid to rest in Fyvie cemetery, the castle residents started to be plagued by strange noises and unexplained happenings. Fearing he had offended the dead woman, the Laird of the castle had the skeleton exhumed and replaced behind the bedroom wall, at which point the haunting ceased.
