We have a love of our little old English market town, and that is where our sole interest in investigating lies. If ghosts truly exist, then there is no reason to suppose they arent everywhere. Seeing a location on a TV show, does not make it more haunted than a local inn, it just makes it more well known

The Castle: Haunted By A Lady Ghost

12by Ayran MEtzender

What is it with castles and multicoloured female spooks? Ghost hunters calling at 12th century Berry Pomeroy Castle are spoiled for choice with both a Blue Lady and a White Lady plying their mournful trade and causing many people to feel inexplicably uneasy when visiting.

The White Lady casino online is said to be Margaret Pomeroy, a renowned beauty who had the misfortune to fall in love with the same man as Lady Eleanor, her less beautiful but insanely jealous sister. Eleanor imprisoned Margaret in the castle dungeons and it is from here that her spirit is said to rise to the castle ramparts. Her partner-in-colourful-haunting, the Blue Lady, is also reportedly seen beckoning to visitors among the ruins. The consensus is that it”s not a good idea to follow her.

Black Eyed Child of Cannock Chase UK

g1Black-Eyed Children (or Black-Eyed Kids) is an urban legend of supposed paranormal creatures that resemble children between the ages of 6 and 16, with pale white skin and black eyes, who are reportedly seen hitchhiking or panhandling, or are encountered on doorsteps of residential homes. Tales of black-eyed children have appeared in pop culture since the late 1980s.

In a British Newspaper The Daily Mail, dated October 3rd 2014, Paranormal experts have reported a rise in the sightings of Black Eyed Children, its reported that the terrifying spectre of a Black Eyed Child has returned to Cannock Chase in Staffordshire England, after an abstinence of 30 Years, and has literally struck terror into the local people, so much so that Following the headlines, many of the nearby residents have been so scared that they have considered selling up and leaving Cannock.

The story of the return of this Black eyed spirit has also sparked a number of other locals to make public their fear. Many posted online about how they’ve been left too scared to leave their homes at night, just in case they cross paths with the demonic spirit.

The latest descriptions of the girl given by several independent eyewitnesses, was of a very young female possibly 6 to 10 years of age, who has eyes as black as coal. These descriptions are identical to those chronicled in the early 1980s, where a woman heard a scream and upon responding found a small child wandering aimlessly, when asked if she had been the one screaming the child turned round and the woman was faced with a child who had eyes of black, the child promptly ran away into woodland, such was the disbelief by the witness that she called the police and the local police conducted a hunt for what they believed was a child out alone on the Chase, at the time no one had any reason to believe that anything paranormal was going on. It was only after many more reports that interest in this phenomena was sparked.

Another disturbing revelation is that unlike sightings of these Children in other parts of the world that take place at night, the Black Eyed Child of Cannock Chase, has been seen consistently during the day.

g2According to one leading psychic from the UK who claims to have not only come face to face with this spectre but to have caught photographic evidence, states that the child was the victim of a diphtheria outbreak in the 1800s. They claim the trouble spirit could be one of many buried in an unmarked grave after perishing in a workhouse. The Psychic also had an explanation for the child’s eyes of black, she commented “The eyes are for effect. These children have a story and they want it told.”

Another Ghost expert who is famous for appearing on TV shows led a team through the woods to where he says he felt the most intense paranormal presence, once at the spot he picked up on two names that of a young 7 year old named Christine (or Christina) and another female named Alicestina, but he was unable to say as to whether at the time if either of these youngsters had black eyes.

In 1967 the body of 7 year old Christine Darby was founded dumped on Cannock Chase less than a mile from where the expert felt compelled to stop.

The Ghost expert strongly believed that the sightings of this Black eyed girl may be connected to the murdered child Christine. He Stated: “I had a very negative feeling when we were up there and I think it is linked. The names I’ve come out with are too coincidental not to be connected.

Another statement from this expert in explanation of the black eyes was: “It’s also common for ghosts with black eyes to have been blindfolded or had their sight restricted shortly before their death.

He went on to say: “The feeling I got there makes me think there could be more bodies up there too.”
He also sensed that a medieval village had existed right where we he was standing, and that he believed that some form of burial ground connected to witchcraft may be there and was likely to have been linked with the young girl Alicestina that he had picked up on.

The notorious Black Eyed Child of Cannock Chase has very quickly become an internet sensation, and belief in ghosts and the supernatural is definitely on the rise in Britain. However if this phenomena is real or not a satisfactory conclusion I feel is a long way off.

Elvey Farms, United Kingdom

Assistant Director / Haunted Locations at National Paranormal Society
I am Deb Daniel Jansons. I was born and raised in the Huntsville, Al area, but lived in Ontario, Canada for 12 years, before coming back home to be with my grandson. I have had an interest in the paranormal since I was a small child and had my first experience. I love going out to places that are known to have strange things happen, but I always look for an explanation of anything that might happen when I am there and take nothing at face value. I also love to read anything that I can get my hands on concerning the paranormal and other people’s experiences. One of my hopes is that the day will come, during my lifetime that we will have absolute proof that there are spirits, aliens, etc out there. Until then, all we can do is investigate and hope.

elvOn 75 acres in Pluckley, in the Ashford District of Kent lies beautiful Elvey Farms. The actual farm dates back to 1496 and references to Pluckley can be found in the famous Doomsday book.

Surrenden Manor, the former residence of Sir Edward Dering, 1st Baronet ( 1598-1644) can also be found in this area. This is where the Dering manuscript, the earliest extant manuscript text of any Shakespearean play was discovered. It is a single play version parts 1 and 2 of King Henry IV.

In 1989, the Guinness Book of Records named this location as “the most haunted village in Britain”.

Several of the ghosts that haunt this area have had stories told about them for so many years, that when people stop by they seem to be automatically told about them.

Edward Brett actually shot himself in the dairy at Elvey Farms. It is said that prior to his death, he said to his wife, “I will do it”. To this day, there are reports of hearing these last words of Edward Brett being whispered around the farm.

There is also the legend of Robert DuBois, an 18th century highwayman. He was run thru with a sword, while he was hiding in a hollow tree at what is now known as Fright Corner. He can still be seen reenacting his death.

The Watercress Woman is seen as a misty figure at Pinnock Bridge. This is the same bridge where she would sit and sell the watercress that she gathered. She seemed to have a penchant for smoking her pipe and drinking gin as she sat on the bridge. One fatal day, she set herself on fire while lighting her pipe.

The Red Lady, who legend says was a member of the Dering family can be seen walking with a small white dog in the churchyard of St. Nicholas’s Church.

The White Lady of Rose Court allegedly poisoned herself over a love triangle.

The black silhouette of the miller can be seen in the ruins of the old windmill which closed in 1930.

There are many more stories of hauntings in this area. If you ever choose to go to Elvey Farms, be sure to take a walk around the village and see which one of these spirits decides to stop long enough to tell you hello…..
