The Haunting of the Old Rectory
The Old Rectory is said to be one of the most haunted buildings in the area.
The Grey Monk hauntings are said to date back to the 1600’s.
His ghostly apparition has been seen by terrified witnesses in the upper rooms of the rectory.
The monk has been described as being a five foot tall hunch-backed who wears a grey cowl.
His ghostly form was last witnessed in the 1930’s.
The upstairs passageway and rooms off it were said to be his favourite haunts.
The rectory was also rumoured to be haunted by the ghost of a kindly woman.
Her apparition is described as wearing a fine grey silk dress and carrying a bunch of flowers.
During the Second World War two teenage girls stayed the night at the rectory.
In the morning they were on their way down to get breakfast when they saw a bedroom door off the passageway was left opened.
They peeked into the room and were surprised to see a young girl in her nightdress sitting on the bed plaiting her hair.
When the girls sat down to breakfast they asked about the young girl in the bedroom.
They were told that they were the only girls in the rectory at the time as the vicar’s daughter was away!
