I’ve always been interested in the supernatural, ever since I saw a ghost in my teens. Waking one morning I saw a man sat on the end of my bed pulling on his boots. It was so clear I could see his face tight-lipped and straining as he pulled at his boot. Dressed in a top hat and a tailed coat he slowly faded into the background of my room. Since then I’ve always been curious about these things and luckily my family has shared my interest. We’ve visited many haunted locations so I thought I would share what in my opinion are the best.
1) Woodchester mansion
WoodchesterMansion is an unfinished, mansion house located in WoodchesterPark near Nymsfield in Gloucestershire. It was formerly known as Spring Park. The Mansion was abandoned by its builders in the middle of construction, leaving behind a building that appears complete from the outside, but with floors, plaster and whole rooms missing inside. It has remained in this state since the mid-1870s. By a mile this place SO creepy and I’ve had so much happen to me here. My bag has been tugged, cold breezes from nowhere. A black feather once floated up in front my eyes circled around then fell flat to the ground. Every time we’ve taken a photo there are orbs.
A dog on the wall?

2) Farleigh Hungerford castle
Farleigh Hungerford Castle at Farleigh Hungerford near Norton St Philips, Somerset, England was built around 1370 Now this place had a few surprises at first things were how they should be. It wasn’t until we entered the chapel that things got interesting. First the air was clammy and the silence was heavy. We felt unwelcome but tip toed slowly on, there was a very ornate tomb I decided to take a photo, my batteries were flat. I asked my daughter to take on, her batteries were also flat. My husband volunteered to go back to the car and get some fresh ones. While he was gone I began to feel sick, even though he was only gone about 2 minutes on his return I felt weak and shivery. I took 2 photos with the new batteries, before they went flat and went home and slept for three hours.
The George Inn Somerset
3) The George Inn Norton Saint Phillips
The George Inn lies about six miles south-east of Bath, in the village of Norton St. PhilipThis place has a creep factor of 10. The eyes of the portraits on the wall follow you around the room, while there is an atmosphere that you can’t quite describe. Footsteps behind me were my experience here. Not a lot on its own but combined with the rest, a good fright.
