Haunted: Purfleet Quay, King’s Lynn, Norfolk

The Haunting of Purfleet Quay

The picturesque Purfleet Quay is said to be haunted by some rather vocal ghosts.

The first wailing banshee is of a bride who killed herself shortly after being wed.

Her screaming ghostly apparition has been witnessed throwing herself into the quay waters!

Other ghostly screams heard in the area are believed to be from phantom soldiers who are busy butchering each other during which the quay waters are said to turn red with blood.

The Edwardian public library which was built and funded by the philanthropist Andrew Carnegie is said to have a religious ghost.

You see, it was built on the site of the old Greyfriar’s monastery.

And, the cellar of the building is said to be haunted by the apparition of a ghostly monk.

In the past, female librarians have been so terrified of the phantom monk that they refused to go to the cellar on their own!
