The Haunting of Chediston Street
The most infamous ghost of Halesworth is that of Squire Baker…
He’s an aggressive spirit said to be very active in Chediston Street.
It’s said that on one occasion his violent ghost hurled an unsuspecting vicar down some stairs resulting in the poor man breaking both his legs!
There’s a house along Chediston Street which terrified witnesses have reported hearing a heavy footed ghost walking from one side of the house to the other.
In 1982 the owner of a private house in the town woke in the middle of the night to discover a ghostly apparition of a man wearing a brown overcoat and trilbury hat in his room.
Thinking the intruder was up to no good the owner reached for his shotgun which he kept next to his bed only to see the apparition disappear in front of his very eyes!
