A council has given away a £375,000 manor house after potential buyers were put off by rumours of hauntings, ghosts and ghouls

Wymering Manor in Portsmouth, Hants, is said to be haunted by a choir of nuns who scuttle across hallways as well as a host of unseen hands which reach out and touch passers by.


The property, thought to be the oldest house in Portsmouth having been mentioned in the 1086 Doomsday book, was placed on sale at an auction with a reserve price of £375,000 last year but failed to sell.


Portsmouth City Council have now donated the Grade II listed building to the Wymering Manor Trust along with a £30,000 grant for repair work.


The group will attempt to restore the house to its former glory, estimated at a total cost of more than £500,000, before opening it as a tourist attraction.




The spirits of whispering children and Sir Roderick of Porchester, who was murdered outside the manor in the middle ages, are said to be among the ghosts haunting the property.

Happy Birthday Lon Chaney, Jr.   (February 10th, 1906 - July 12th, 1973)

All the best of the monsters played for sympathy. That goes for my father, Karloff, myself and all the others. They all won the audience’s sympathy. The Wolf Man didn’t want to do all those bad things. He was forced into them.”, via the-dark-city.

“USA - A collection of anonymous photographs, the oldest dating from 1875. The book Haunted Air by Ossian Brown with a foreword by David Lynch dating from 2010 takes us into the atmosphere of the costumes Halloween party, between 1875 and 1955. Some photographs are still frightening.”

Some first photos of Halloween, dating from the XIXth century to the 50’s. Very interesting and fantastic, some costumes remind me The Nightmare Before Christmas!

Scott Martin and his family encountered a mysterious dark entity while traveling home by taxi.The incident occurred at around 10:30pm when they spotted a figure darting across the road in front of them. Likening it to the legendary Spring Heeled Jack, the family were so terrified by what they”d seen that night that their son was too scared to sleep and even the taxi driver was hesitant to drive home on his own. It isn”t the first such incident on record either,investigator Neil Arnold has heard of a similar case: “About three of four years ago I got a report of a woman driving when a dark figure walked across the road and she crashed her car to avoid it,” he said. “I spoke to her and she was absolutely terrified. So witnesses are clearly seeing something.” Jack Bowman, 32, writer and director with the Wireless Theatre Company who produced a three part radio series on the legend of Spring Heeled Jack, said: “What absolutely intrigues me about this is that Spring Heeled Jack hasn’t been seen since 1986. “
