When I was about eight years old, my parents booked for us to stay in an old Rectory in Dorset. It was a really beautiful place, kind of medieval looking with roses around the door. It was quite old and run down on the inside; not much modernisation had taken place. It was still the old iron beds and patchwork covers.
On the first night there I remember being woken up by the sound of a strange thudding, but my parents reassured me it was the old central heating system - I wasn't overly convinced.
I was even less convinced the next morning when I walked down the stairs (they were a half turn set of stairs with a landing half way down) to see a dense dark shadow, about six foot tall and wearing a hat. I remember being quite distressed and my mum telling me I was imagining it. Years later she told me that although she hadn't said so at the time, she saw the same shadowy figure several times on the holiday. When she did a bit more digging around she discovered that other guests had seen the figure and they believed it was the ghost of a vicar who fell down the stairs and broke his neck. It would certainly explain the strange bumps in the night.
When I left university I worked in an old bookshop in Gloucester. I'd only been there a couple of days when I kept smelling really strong wafts of lavender. It was strange because it would often come when we were at our quietest and literally felt as if somebody had just walked by. Their was an antiquarian bookstore on the floor above and very often I'd hear a thump and then later find books on the floor. The third story of the bookshop was disused and rarely visited, but very often as I came back from the staffroom, I would hear the soft steps of slippered feet on the stairs; when you put your hand out it would be like literally touching a cold metal door of air.
Kerry Sparks: It was Halloween night. I was in college, coming home from a Halloween party. It was dark and there were handfuls of students walking about. One person stood out from the rest. He was wearing a Scream mask and a dark black robe paired with midnight pants. I saw him for a few seconds then he disappeared behind a tree. I got into my car and then I went to put my key in the ignition. Suddenly, I felt someone looking inside the car. I looked at the front windshield and BAM! there was the Scream mask plastered across the windshield. AGHH! I jumped. I quickly started the car and honked the horn at him, and he lurked away.
