The first spooky building I want to tell
you about is the 16th-c building called Warwick House. It’s a Grade II listed
building and is located on Church Street. As you can see from the photo, it’s a
magnificent timber framed building, which has had lots of different uses over
the last several hundred years.
the 1970’s, it was a bistro, and the staff would regularly see a figure of a
person on the stairs but when the staff would approach them, the figure would
disappear. This was said to happen when the bistro was closed for the evening
so no one, apart from the staff, should’ve been in the building when this
figure was sighted.
with the figure on the stairs, there were also sightings of a large Alsatian
dog that would be seen all over the building. The sightings of both the figure
and the dog became more frequent and alongside this, unexplained noises began.
There were slamming doors and sounds as though things were being moved around.
sights and sounds became very frequent for around 2 weeks when suddenly, a fire
broke out in the building. Luckily it was under control before it spread
further and caused more damage. Obviously, it being a timber framed building,
it would be more susceptible to fire but no-one could explain how the fire, in
such a short time, could become so intense that it melted the aluminium beer
barrels within a very short amount of time. Were the sightings and noises some
sort of warning?
