Sounds of Murder

Location: Loch Assynt (Highland) – Banks of the loch
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Date / Time: 11 March (reoccurring)
Further Comments: The site where a debt ridden schoolmaster killed a peddler for his gold is marked once a year by the sounds of the crime being reenacted – the crack of something hard being brought down on the salesman’s head, followed by footsteps, a body being dragged, and the splash as the corpse is thrown into the water.


Location: Hopton (Shropshire) – Hopton Castle
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Date / Time: 14 March (reoccurring)
Further Comments: The ghosts of twenty eight Parliamentarians return on this date. They held out in the castle against a force of five hundred Royalists for two weeks, the siege only ending when the defenders were tricked into surrendering in exchange for their lives – they were slaughtered as they left the building. A maid is also reported to walk the site. (Image �2006 Lawson Clout)
