The Hauntings at the King’s Head Centre
Just opposite the Moot Hall in Maldon there’s a building called the King’s Head Centre.
Well this building used to be the King’s Head pub and it has a few ghostly tales to tell.
It’s believed that back in 1946 a poltergeist was present at the King’s Head!
In the dead of night phantom footsteps were often heard running up and down the stairs and along the pub’s hallway.
It’s said that the poltergeist moved objects from room to room and even terrified people by locking doors behind them!
They never really discovered the true story behind the haunting of the poltergeist at the King’s Head pub!

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.
