Ooh, looks interesting!

We've all just been away in Northumberland, just returned, I'm sure Spirit Bear and Chatelaine will be watching this too.

Reminds me of the Black Monk of Pontefract.

I should have remembered this story. About 3 years ago, while on holiday in London, I went on Richard Jones'(of Most Haunted fame)Ghost Walk of the Financial District, where he described, in great detail, the story of Sarah Whitehead. One fact not mentioned in the video is another reason why the bank workers got tired of Ms. Whitehead showing up every day-she stank. It would appear that the lady, in addition to not bathing regularly, also refused to change or clean her clothing, for the 25 years she lived after her brother's death.

The video was very good, but the narrator made one howler-he says Sarah died between 1937 and 1942-pretty good, considering her brother was hanged in 1811! BTW-if you've never seen Ghosts of the Underground, you are missing one of the best videos ever made on the paranormal.
