“There have long been legends about the ghostly figure of an old signalman who used to work at Rothley station, but we certainly didn’t expect the report to uncover quite as many spectral passengers waiting for our steam trains!” marketing assistant Lynn Hill.

In the Victorian waiting room two ghostly apparitions have been seen. One a young female carrying a parasol, and the other an older lady in Victorian dress, sitting in a chair by the left hand side of the door. The station it seems is a centre for paranormal sightings. Witnesses have reported seeing a phantom a party of schoolboys with their teacher, on the platform waiting for a train.

Loves a good ghost story, especially whilst sat in front of an open log fire on a cold and dark winters night.

    I believe I have been the witness of poltergeist activity. I was on a visit with my party and as I walked past an unnamed room, I saw a drawer open. The chest seemed in good condition, the floor was level and I swear that there was no draughts.

Got something to say? Go for it!
