The grand 18th century Georgian house has a fearsome reputation as one of London’s most haunted properties.

“… It seems that a Something or Other, very terrible indeed, haunts or did haunt a particular room. This unnamed Raw Head and Bloody Bones, or whatever it is, has been sufficiently awful to have caused the death, in convulsions, of at least two foolhardy persons who have dared to sleep in that chamber…”
Charles Harper. Haunted Houses, published in 1907.

Lights flash on and off in the windows, and eerie screams have been heard by passers by. The sound of a heavy body has also been heard being dragged down the staircase. Two sailors stayed the night at the house and one of them reported that upon sleeping in a room upstairs they woke to hear heavy footsteps climbing the staircase. The door was then flung open and a hideous, shapeless, oozing mass then began to fill the room. One of the pair managed to escape but upon returning to the house with a policeman, he found the body of his friend impaled on the railings outside, with a twisted face and bulging eyes. The house is now a booksellers, and in 2001 a young woman working on Saturday morning witnessed a mass of brown mist, move quickly across the room and vanish. In the same year a cleaning lady felt the presence of someone standing behind her but upon turning found she was alone in the room. In another ghostly occurrence a man walking up the staircase suddenly had his glasses snatched from his hand and flung to the floor.

Other Manifestations include, the ghost of a scottish girl, who sobs and wrings her hands and also the ghost of a woman who threw herself front a top window.

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

Got something to say? Go for it!
