My Haunted Life Too


Old Monastery Pool is Cursed

03 January 2023 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

There is a place near my village that I am too afraid to visit at night. They say Old Monastery Pool is haunted and that this is the story which proves it. Just after the Second World War and with rationing still firmly in place, trading any extra food you grew or caught was near necessity. A youth in my tiny Nottinghamshire village known only as Young Charlie understood this well. Back in those days Young Charlie could often be found in the Burrell Arms (I actually live there now) trading the trout and eels he’d plucked from local streams for ration stamps. ‘I s’pose you know about Old Monastery Pool,’ one patron asked, as he exchanged a few stamps for one of Charlie’s slender trout. Charlie shook his head. ‘Never heard

The Haunted Dresser

25 December 2022 | Haunted items, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

One of my first ghost experience was when I was about 9-11 years old. A relative of ours has passed away, after she passed, her family had given me a dresser of hers, (she kept her stuff in immaculate condition). Well, when I was sleeping, I saw her standing at the foot of my bed. The next morning, I told my mom, she didn’t say too much about it then. But then the next night, she was there again, I told my mom about her again the next day, she told me the only way to find out if something is real or not is to touch it. So, this is now the third night I see her standing at the foot of my bed, so I sit up so

The Heysham Chronicle

24 December 2022 | Your Stories

We don’t usually publish fiction here but I will make an exception this once for this story by Mike Ricket and originally published here. By Mike Rickett Anthony Slim has always had a liking for local museums. They are usually quirky and full of curiosities that you would not find in the big city museums. He is wandering around a small museum in just three rooms in the village of Heysham on the Lancashire coast, probably best known for its port offering sailings to Ireland and the Isle of Mann. His visit is entirely unplanned. It is December and Hope University in Liverpool, where he is a senior lecturer in the Arts Faculty, is winding down for the Christmas break. He has a free day and the prospect of a

Ghost Girl

23 December 2022 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I grew up in an area that used to be a Pottawatomie Sioux and French fur trading village. This history is relevant. Outside of town, just down the road from my grandma’s house, was a clearing in the woods, on top of a hill, right near a spring. When I was a kid, my dad chose to situate a single-story ranch-style prefab house in that clearing, and we moved into it when I was maybe 12 or 13 years old. The weirdness started right away. Within a few days of moving in, when we were all watching a movie in the living room, we heard a loud BANG like a gunshot in the kitchen. When we went to see if something had fallen over, though, nothing was out of place.

Missing Xmas Decorations

22 December 2022 | Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

A relative suffered an untimely death that shook our whole family to the core. Their passing was in early December many years ago and our family, grief-stricken, endeavoured to decorate our tree. The box of decorations was kept in a space under the stairs in our basement. That year, the box was nowhere to be found. Our family went out and bought entirely new tree decorations. We got through the holidays, into the new year and took the tree down. As we went to place the new decorations in the usual space…there was the old box we’d been looking for. And it was really one of three boxes under there.   Submitted by  t3eee

20 December 2022 | Haunted houses, Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

An ex-friend of mine and I had one of those missing item experiences – his car keys (which were kept on the kitchen counter) vanished one morning before we left for work. We looked EVERYWHERE in the apartment. Scoured the living room, the kitchen, his bedroom, we even checked the driveway, but no keys! So he called the boss and told her that we weren’t going to be able to make it in to work because his keys were missing, and then we decided to take a short walk down the street to the convenience store to de-stress and figure out what to do if we couldn’t relocate the car keys. As soon as we got home and walked back in the front door, THERE WERE HIS KEYS, sitting on

My Brother

19 December 2022 | Phone Calls from the dead, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Before I start, I want to say that I am quite a spiritual person, but I always try to find the logic in things like this. My brother died nearly 2 years ago, and for months after his death he was quite ‘active’… For example, multiple people have claimed to have received phone calls from him. I witnessed one of them. My mother picked up the phone, apprehensive because it was from a “no called Id” number, and immediately we both recognised his voice.  We were quite shocked and he said “goodbye”. (Bear in mind my brother had a very very distinctive voice). When my brother was alive, he loved to paint.  After his death, my sister and I both took one painting from his house. The painting that my

The Haunted School

17 December 2022 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

A friend of mine runs a school for pre-school kids. It is located in a large 1920’s building just outside the city center that was built to strict standards of opulence by a wealthy jewish family.  Unfortunately, when the Nazi’s took over in this part of the world, the family were taken from their home and shipped off to concentration camps where apparently they unfortunately died. Several teachers at the school have reported strange happenings. One, took her boyfriend there returning home from a night out when it was very late with the intention of sleeping on the floor. She said that after about 30 minutes, someone switched the hall light on yet the building was empty. This worried them a bit but they switched off the light and settled

We Spent 3 Nights in a Haunted Hotel Room

15 December 2022 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, we spent the weekend in a hotel room considered by many to be the most haunted hotel room in the country. The room is in the Marshall House in Savannah, Georgia — ranked as the most Haunted City in the USA, and the Marshall House as Savannah’s most haunted hotel. It’s room 414. And we stayed there for three nights. I did not plan on staying in room 414. Well, I sort of planned, but that was not the specific plan. Here’s how it happened. It was our 13th anniversary. We both love Savannah. Its historic district is beautiful and full of history. I love history, and she loves this kinda stuff… I mean, stuff like “ghosts”. And it was our 13th. It just made sense

Our Haunted Home: 63 Maple Street

03 November 2022 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

About the town, the Haunting of 63 Maple Street took place in… Belišće, Croatia, the quaint little town that I moved to back in 2017, sits in a corner of southeastern Europe that is near the Slavonian and Hungarian border. It is a place with quite an interesting past, to say the least. The contents of this book center around the history and events that occurred on and around one particular street in town; Maple Street, as it used to be known before the Balkan Wars of the 1990s. The town was originally made up of peaceful working-class people who flocked there from all over Europe, for the most part, to work at the giant sawmill (one of the largest of its kind) created by the founding family of Belišće,

The Place by the Lake

20 October 2022 | Your True Encounters

It was designed to be a prank. I was going to take my sister and her friend out to the place by the lake at dusk and then suggest that something wasn’t right. I just wanted to give them a bit of a scare that’s all. But it did not go to plan at all. It was easy to get them to join me even though darkness was approaching. “It’ll be fun,”I said. It isn’t far to the lake. Just through a small copse at the bottom of our land and across a marshy field. The lake isn’t very large nor deep. But it does have a few fish and so we had a spot down there for fishing. It had a fireplace, a wood-built shelter from the rain and
