Is this Britain’s most haunted church?

While I was researching my Ghost Finder London app ( I was introduced and re-introduced to a number of haunted sites previously not known to me or which I only knew of vaguely. Many stood out but perhaps the most notable is the church of St Bartholomew’s the Great in Smithfield.

St Bart’s is terrifically haunted – by numerous apparitions, some identifiable and others more ambiguous, such as shining lights and a shadowy presence. Really, there are so many ghosts here it deserved a place in my recent Top 50 Most Haunted Places in Britain chart. Indeed, I believe it could arguably be described as Britain’s most haunted church, eclipsing the likes of the celebrated Westminster Abbey.

You can read more about haunted St Bart’s over on the Spooky Isles website at:
