The Hauntings of St Peter and St Paul’s Church

St Peter and St Paul’s Church is located in Church Road in Hockley.

There’s a ghostly tale associated with Hockley Church which involves of all things a stage-coach crashing into a tree just outside the church.

It’s said that the coach driver and his lady passenger both tragically die in the accident.

And from then on an eerie phantom stage-coach has been seen outside the church!

Witnesses to this ghostly apparition say they see the phantom stage-coach with all four horses come to a halt…

Then the phantom lady in white passenger gives them an eerie wave.

The ghostly stage-coach then pulls away only to tragically crash nearby!

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.
