101 Great British Hauntings

MJ WAYLAND continues his series on 101 Great British Ghosts with card-playing Cavaliers, a ghostly King Arthur and the spectre of a King Charles spaniel.

61. At Wonson Manor on Dartmoor spectral Cavaliers have been seen playing cards, perhaps replaying the hand on which the title deed of the manor were gambled away.

62. Visitors to Renishaw Hall, the family home of the Sitwells near Sheffield, have reported receiving chilling kisses from the cold lips of ghosts.

63. The ghost of a woman has been seen washing her hands at Castle Grant near Grantown-on-Spey in Scotland.

64. Ham House in Surrey plays host to the apparition of a King Charles spaniel which has been seen in broad daylight.

65. At Hergest Court in Herefordshire a head with no body is carried by its owner’s dog, who faithfully picked it up and carried it off after his master was beheaded.

66. The Bear Inn at Stock in Essex has a ghost whose earthly body became stuck in the chimney during a bar-room prank.

67. Roos Hall at Beccles in Suffolk has a variety of spooks including a coach with a headless groom which arrives on Christmas Eve.

68. The spirit of King Arthur is rumoured to inhabit Tintagel Castle in Cornwall.

69. John Buckstone, the actor/manager, still frequents London’s Haymarket Theatre, even though he died in 1878.

70. Saddell Abbey in Scotland is said to be haunted by “giants and beasties”.

We will continue to “count ‘em down” next week with more of 101 Great British Hauntings!
