The Haunting of Cressing Church
The village of Cressing is just a 15 minute drive west of Feering.
You see, the lovely Grade I Parish Church of All Saints in the village has a ghostly tale which I think you’ll find interesting…
Back in the cold winter of 1949 startled locals reported hearing a congregation merrily singing away to an organ within the church.
So what was so strange about that?
Well, the church was locked up, empty and dark… nobody should have been inside at the time!
The church authorities investigated but could not come up with any feasible reason to why the locals heard a congregation singing in the building.
This ghostly phenomenon regularly occurred throughout that winter of 1949.
But funnily enough… the phantom congregation has never been heard singing again since that cold winter!
