The Haunting of Northwood House
You’ll find the early 18th century Grade II* listed Northwood House situated along the Winchester Road in Chilbolton.
Today, the Queen Anne house is a private residence but in its history it was used as a rectory.
And it was during this period that it gained a reputation for being haunted.
You see, the house was built on the site of an old nunnery.
And it’s said to be haunted by the ghost of a nun from 1393 called Katherine Faulkener.
It’s said that she ran away from Wherwell Abbey.
And as a punishment for the sins she committed whilst she was away, the Abbess walled her up alive in the nunnery!
Witnesses have reported seeing her ghost staring out of one of the windows of the house, sometimes beckoning for help.
