101 Great British Hauntings

MJ WAYLAND continues on with his 101 Great British Hauntings series with several unusual ghosts, including Lord Byron’s dog and some chanting monks.

71. The echoes of phantom footsteps can be heard at Chingle Hall in Lancashire, which is said to be full of secret hiding places.

72. Even owner Lord Montagu himself is reported to have heard the chanting of long-dead monks at Beaulieu in Hampshire.

73. At Bisham Abbey in Berkshire the strange ghost of Lady Hoby is seen “in negative” with black hands and face and white clothes.

74. The spirit of Dorothy Southworth lingers at Samlesbury Hall in Lancashire where her would-be bridegroom was murdered by her brother.

75. At Berry Pomeroy in Devon the ghost of Lady Margaret Pomeroy lures passers-by to her tower from which they fall to their deaths.

76. The Chequers Inn at Smarden in Kent is haunted by the ghost of a soldier murdered there in the 18th Century.

Byron's Dog Boatswain

77. Lord Byron’s dog Boatswain haunts Newstead Abbey, Nottingham.

78. A nun, walled up in Southfleet Rectory in Kent returns to haunt the place.

79. Ashintully Castle, near Kirkmichael in Scotland, is haunted by three ghosts including that of a tinker hanged there for trespassing.

80. The ghost of Anne Boleyn is said to cross the bridge over River Eden at Haver Castle in Kent every Christmas Eve.

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