Top 50 Most Haunted Places in Britain – daily countdown

So what was my Hallowe’en article? Well, it’s the first post in my own personal roster of what I consider the Top 50 most haunted places in Britain. As I say, it’s very much a personal choice. My criteria are number of reported ghosts and frequency of activity. I’ve tended to go for better authenticated sites than those that have become popular in recent years with the advent of ghost-hunting TV programmes and fee-charging entertainments. but the best of those, like Woodchester Mansion, do appear.

I’d be really interested to know what people think of my choice. I’ll be uploading the list one at a time over the next 49 days, counting down to the top spot. I’m sure every reader would have made a different list. Some will ask, why has Richard chosen so-and-so over such-and such and why has he left famous Castle X off the list? Have I forgotten somewhere major? Probably, and I’ll kick myself if I have. Please do keep coming back to find out. It’s just a bit of fun, of course, but i’d be very interested in your feedback.

Number 50 in the Top 50 is a classic haunted site in Essex. You can find out what it is here: (Note the ‘666’ in the URL – see previous, creeped out, blog entry!)
