It Followed us on Our School Trip!

21 September 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was on a residential trip in year 3 and we only slept there for one night. All the girls were in one big room and all the boys were in one big room. We were at Tatton Hall and it was time to go to sleep, so all the girls settled down and went to bed. There were bunk beds and I was on the top bunk as well as my friend, Taylor, who slept right next to a small window which was a frosted window. In the morning we all woke up and looked out the window. There, looking straight into the room, was a man who wore a top hat and a suit. Because it was a frosted window it looked like the man had no face,

Leigh Woods

10 September 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

In May 2017 I found myself going out a lot more on my Mountain Bike, I was getting bored of cruising around the streets so I wanted to go for a trail/woodland bike ride. I’ve never been to leigh Woods before then, Personally I don’t think I’ll be going alone again. After some research into a few different areas, Leigh Woods seemed to be my best bet, Living only a couple miles away it was a nice bike ride. On arriving, It looked very peaceful and I was almost in a dream like state by my first look of the place. For a woodland area in England let alone Bristol, It was amazing. On going into the woods I remembered seeing different colours at the start of each trail signifying

Otto’s

31 August 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was 16, I got into a wreck in my Dad’s truck. I’d had my license for just 1 week when this happened and the truck was my Dad’s work truck. He had his own business. I was in deep trouble. Luckily for me, the guy who came to tow the truck was someone my dad had known from his teenage years. The man’s name was Otto. So my Dad rode with Otto since he wanted the truck towed to our house. When my Dad had cooled off enough to talk to me he told me about Otto and how they had both been street racers (was that a term used in the late 60’s?). Anyway the main street in Salt Lake is State Street and weekend nights teenagers

Ghost Follower

25 August 2020 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Okay so here is my story. At least the best that I can remember it This is long sorry. Before I start the story, you need to know I have been told I am what they call a medium and that ghost are very drawn to me. If you don’t know, a Medium is some who can interact with the spirit world, at least that is what the internet says. I never really investigated what people called me because I never believed it. I have had several encounters with the paranormal in my life, but this is the one that has always stuck with me the most. When my husband and I first started dating we lived in my old apartment together. At this apartment, I swear to you, there

Slaughterhouse Canyon

05 August 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

We went on a tour of the western states for our honeymoon, on an impromptu Jeep camping trip. We mostly explored National Parks and historic sites. While we were in the state of Arizona visiting the Grand Canyon for the first time, my wife and I decided to research other attractions in Arizona. I found a list of haunted places in the state, and Slaughterhouse Canyon popped up near the top. The legend goes that a family homesteaded in the canyon many years ago. The father was a prospector and hunter who would leave and be gone for weeks at a time, looking for gold and wild game. One time, however, he failed to return. The children slowly began to starve, and their screams for food began to drive the

It Followed Me Home From the Cemetery

04 August 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I am from the small town of Lumberton, North Carolina. We have local legend of a ghost that haunts one of the cemeteries here in town. Her name is Clare Townsend. The legend goes that Ms. Townsend was set to wed in 1912; however, she passed on the night before her wedding day. She has been seen walking thru the cemetery at night, wearing her wedding gown. My encounter happened back in 2010. Some friends and I went to the cemetery looking for the ghost. It was an easy trip. Turned right, then left, and the cemetery was there from my apartment. We got out, flashlights in hand and walked thru the cemetery. It took us a while to find her grave, but there it was. A headstone with a

The Tragedy of Fairytale

03 July 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Pohádka means fairytale in Czech, but it is also the name of a reputedly haunted and cursed location in the Czech Republic. It all began May 1828, when in a nearby village called Strážov, a fire broke out. One house caught fire and a storm blew the hot embers across the roofs of neighboring houses. In the end, 78 houses including the town hall, were destroyed. The villagers wanted to know why why such a horrible event would take place in such an idyllic place and soon they had an answer. Near Pohádka by edge of the forest, was a small hut occupied by a strange old woman. There was talk of her being a witch. This poor old woman was determined to be the culprit and to be the

Sherman’s Blue Coats

01 July 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I write this experience as a way to possibly relieve long standing stress and fright that I have had to deal with personally since it occurred to me. I would hope that you will be able to respect what happened to me and take it for what its worth. Just know this experience still haunts me to this day, and I have only ever told one other person about this. They believed me, but due to my occupation, urged me to never speak of it in any serious fashion to anyone else. I suppose I am getting a little ahead of myself so I will start from the beginning. For sake of me telling this you can refer to me as “Jack”. I live in a predominantly rural county in

Mum’s Morgue Horror Stories

20 June 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My mum Is a paramedic, been in the NHS for 30+ years, a well known member of staff. And like her reputation. She is known for her fair share of ghost stories about the old morgue in north west england (not being specific for privacy reasons), which has now been torn down with the rest of the hospital and has a housing estate on it. Her most freaky one has to be when they dropped an expired patient at the morgue. This happened back in the 90s, when the hospital was still used. They had been in the morgue, handing over an expired patient. This next bit of info is important to the story. The ambulance bay was a concrete garage, with one tiny dim light inside and was directly

A Sobbing Ghost

04 June 2020 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your True Encounters

Langley Castle in Northumberland, England, is now a hotel as well as a fortified medieval castle. Those who know me will know I have a soft spot for haunted hotels and have even put out a book filled with reviews of haunted hotels. Langley Castle is also reputed to have been the inspiration for JK Rowling’s  Moaning Myrtle and Grey Lady, which both haunt Hogwart’s.  That is because it hosts the ghost of the Gray Lady who is regularly seen sobbing uncontrollably as she glides through the corridors towards a high window. She looks back with a tear-stained face, and then jumps and disappears… No one really is quite sure who the ghost is as the obvious candidates can all be ruled out. Reputed to be Maud de Lucy, who

The Missouri Gargoyle

27 April 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

So my story is from about 10 years ago. We lived in Franklin county, Missouri. My cousin is like my brother and me and him were bored one night and so we decided to go see a movie the town. The theater was only about 6 miles from where we lived. There was a road that we use to take back and forth to the theater to avoid police because we were in our early 20s and it was the time fast and the furious was big and we drove like idiots everywhere. Point being it was a quicker route. So it begins after we leave the theatre. I don’t recall what we went and seen but it wasn’t a horror film that would put us in that head space.

The Man in the Roadway

22 April 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My senior year of high school I had a job that kept me out until midnight. As I was driving home one night I noticed someone walking beside the road. This is very strange because there was nothing around there for him to be walking to so I paid close attention to him to make sure he didn’t jump in front of me. He was wearing an early 1900s suit with matching suitcase. I continued watching him but he disappeared as soon as I started to pass him. I turned off the radio and sat in silence the rest of the way home. I didn’t believe in ghosts until that night when I saw one.   Submitted by Jordan Michael to weird Darkness and My Haunted Life Too

Shadow Parishioners at St. Andrews

09 April 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Back in August of 2018, I started a second job at the church I attend. It was a weekend gig cleaning the school and the church. It started off pretty easy. I would come in early on Saturday morning in order to beat everyone there so I could clean without interference and then come in Sunday afternoon. One Sunday afternoon, while cleaning the classrooms, I started hearing what sounded like a large crowd in the hallway. I looked out and saw no one. There were a couple teachers getting stuff ready for the next day, but nothing that justified the noise. This went on and off for the rest of the shift. I got a little spooked and I told my wife about it. She thought that perhaps I was

Balan-Balan

19 March 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

‘Balan-balan’ as it is known in Sabah (North Borneo) but also known by different names in Southeast Asian countries. It is a nocturnal vampire-like entity that feeds on new mothers’ blood, their babies or someone who is gravely ill. One must remember that most folklore or legends in these countries are handed down by word of mouth from way back when so the stories about how balan-balan feeds on its victims and how it came to exist vary from country to country in Southeast Asia. What I was told, the evil entity came to exist because of a woman who dabbled in black magic. So the story goes, she was startled by someone who walked into her house and saw her perform the ritual by submerging her body in water.
