The Haunting of Hockley Railway Station
Hockley railway station is said to be haunted by the ghost of a teenage girl.
One cold December night a railway employee witnessed a ghostly apparition of a distressed crying teenage girl run to the top of the footbridge at Hockley station.
She then shockingly proceeded to jump off the bridge…
But before she hit the ground she totally disappeared into thin air!
The sad story of the suicide teenage girl is said to date back to the 1960s when on one New Year’s Eve a distraught young girl committed suicide at the station when she discovered her boyfriend with another girl.

FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: The Arnos Manor Hotel
Along the Bath Road in Bristol you’ll find the Arnos Manor Hotel.
The hotel was first built as a private home for the business merchant William Reeve in 1760.
It was once a girl’s school which was run by nuns and it’s the ghost of one of these nuns that is said to haunt the hotel today.
Local legend says that a nun had committed suicide because she fell pregnant.
To hide the scandal, the other nuns bricked up her body behind a wall at the hotel.
During the Second World War the hotel was bombed by the German Luftwaffe.
The workmen who were sent in to repair the bomb damage area of the hotel uncovered a female skeleton.
Apparently, to avoid delay, the workmen just buried the bones elsewhere within the building!
Since then, poltergeist activity has taken place throughout the hotel.
Terrified guests have also witnessed a ghostly brown figure within the hotel especially within Room 160.
Guests have heard a female voice calling their name and have felt a figure pinning them down whilst they’ve slept in Room 160.
