Haunted: The Rose and Crown, Great Waltham, Essex

The Hauntings at the Rose and Crown
In the 1980s, the Rose and Crown pub had the builders in to update it.
During the conversion, the builders reported a series of strange unexplained ghostly noises coming from different locations within the pub.
They were constantly annoyed by their tools being moved from one room to another by unknown hands.
The funny thing is…
All the poltergeist activity ceased once the builders had completed the work.
To this day, the owners have never reported any paranormal activity taking place within the property!

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.
