The Royal and Ancient

In the 1800s, it is said that there was a fire at the local Atkinsons Mill, in which 18 children aged 9-18 lost their lives. The disfigured bodies were laid out in the cold cellar of the Royal And Ancient pub, which served as a temporary mortuary.

Visitors have reported glasses shattering, light fixtures being removed from the walls, and furniture being moved around the bar. Some members of staff have supposedly been afraid to work alone in the kitchen.

 

Also, the ghost of a former landlord Mr Black who mistreated the staff often scratches visitors he doesn't like.

Old Victorian House in Huddersfield (Undisclosed)

The house was part of an estate and was once the game keeper’s house.  Kirsty a former worker there, made reports that on several occasions when she emptied the dishwasher, strange things would happen. Kirsty would always take the cutlery through to dining room, however upon returning a few minutes later the cutlery would be on the floor.  This wasn’t the only strange thing that happened there, she was required to stay in the old house on several occasion but these nights never went without something strange happening. One night she reported hearing a banging in the one of the children’s rooms, when she went to investigate she found the child sleeping, but what was strange the banging seems to becoming from above the Childs head.  She called out to the invisible entity to stop banging but the banging then moved over to the radiator, Kirsty recalls the sound as if someone was running up and down it

One of the children living there also claimed to play with a ghostly girl in the spare room, however, she would often recount that the girl would turn into and ugly old woman if she didn't get her own way.

However, Kirsty would soon leave the old house for good after she saw a man looking up at her from the cellar when she went to fetch some wood.
