Haunted buildings, further Ghostly adventures of Hubby

I answered a Hubpage question about spending a night in a Haunted House. Hub questions always provide great inspiration for creating a hub. Well they do for me. If you have hit writer's block you may just find they help kick start your writing.

However this time they may have unleashed a monster.

Having read the said created Hub, Hubby now feels that I have not shared enough of his psychic experiences for you to make an informed judgement. And yes I did write physic and not psychotic.

So along with hubby's narrative here we go.

Haunted Kingston-Upon-Hull on Youtube

Now this ghostly experience happened, apparently, around ten years ago. Hubby was in his fifties, just, so perhaps it was a time of life crisis. Oh hang on though that can't be the reason as these experiences have been throughout his life.

Of course an incident springs to mind from his teenage years. He and a guy called Chris were rather drunk. As they staggered home Chris had to stop for a pee. He went round the other side of a large tree trunk.

According to Hubby he vanished. He reckons there was nowhere he could have gone unnoticed. He has never seen this guy from that day to this. Sounds to me either like an alien capture or more likely, far too much beer, to me.

So on to his ghostly experience.

Ten years ago hubby was working in a large, old, Victorian hospital. The hospital was partly closed and most of the remaining inpatients were elderly men and women.

The building in parts was a little reminiscent of the Adams Family house. This hospital many years before had been a Workhouse for the poor. No wonder it eventually was decided to close it down.

Hubby worked with a guy who had been employed at this same hospital for many years. Around 30 in fact. He claimed to have seen a dozen or more ghosts during this time.Why he continued to work there then, escapes me.

The old Pathology Labs were rather a maze. One led into another, and so on, meaning it was all too easy to feel lost. A long passage way just inside had various rooms leading off. In what had been a locker room was hot water pipe. This pipe was so hot that even only slightly wet fingers would sizzle if they touched it. Funny thing was though, that the room was always deathly cold.

8 old bricked up cells had been situated to the right of this locker room. The cells had actually been demolished, so in other words just the bricked up entrances remained. They were from the hospital's workhouse days.

A new young member of staff had shown more than a passing interest in ghosts. So it was decided that Hubby and he would take a look in this spooky building. I suppose for Hubby it was to be a bit of a laugh and it was also to show this guy the old cells.

The buildings were always locked behind you as you entered at night. This was to prevent intruders and thefts. This menas that it was impossible for any other person to in the building. It was just the two of them.

As soon as they made their way into the heart of the building the young lad got the jitters. Hubby said he tried to calm him down, to no avail. The lad had froze and could only say he had to get out. His panic began to rub off and Hubby thought we better get out and quick.

So they set off to leave through the maze of rooms. Turning to switch off the light they both saw, only a foot or so away, a shadowy figure in black. It may have only been a glimpse but hubby maintains it looked like a medieval monk. Of course, neither he nor the lad stuck around to find out.

They both legged it in rapid time. Hubby never saw the ghostly figure again, nor did he see the young lad either. Seems he decided one shift there was enough.

      My mother and I were talking to one another and for an instant saw a woman seated in the room with us. We both described her perfectly to one another. It was just an instant vision and when we looked back, she was gone. This was not in an old house like that hospital of your husband's experience. She was a young Hispanic woman and it had meaning for us. We think that she was the grown version of a young child that we had known and she was assuring us that all was OK now...although it would have meant that she was dead. Of course we never knew for sure...but?
