The Hauntings of Lowes Mill
In Thaxted there’s an old windmill which dates back to 1804.
Some call it Lowes Mill whilst others call it John Webb’s Mill after the guy who built it.
Well, you know what I’m going to say now… yep, it’s haunted!
And the good news is that it’s opened to the public as a rural museum so you can have a look around it if you wish.
The team at the windmill have a few spooky tales to tell.
They’ve heard phantom footsteps and bangs coming from the upper floors of the windmill after closing hours when the building is supposed to be empty!
Ghostly shadows have been seen by the staff and on one of the floors visitors feel they are being watched by something unearthly.
The mill’s owners are open-minded when it comes to investigations by paranormal groups.
Interestingly, past investigations have uncovered the spirits of children, phantom voices, eerie lights and bone chilling cold spots!
