Haunted: The Buttermarket Shopping Centre, Ipswich, Suffolk

| On 29, Jun 2017

The Hauntings at the Buttermarket Shopping Centre

Opposite St Stephen’s Church in St Stephen’s Lane you’ll find the Buttermarket shopping centre.

The centre was built over an Anglo-Saxon graveyard, the foundations of many medieval houses and the Carmelite White Priory.

So it probably won’t be too much of a surprise to tell you that the CCTV system in the underground car park beneath the shopping centre has captured unexplained ghostly shadows moving around the place!

Before the shopping centre was constructed there was Cowells department store and Cowells printers.

At both buildings terrified witnesses reported seeing the ghostly apparition of an old monk.

At the rear of the Buttermarket shopping centre there’s emergency exit doors which leads out into an alleyway…

Well, along this alleyway many spooked witnesses have reported seeing an apparition of a man running towards them only to vanish into thin air right in front of their very eyes!
