Castel - House known as Les Mourains (may no longer stand)
Possibly mid-to-late-eighteenth century
A woman who lived here died after giving birth to two sons, although she had time to make her husband promise not to remarry. Her husband failed to keep the promise, and shortly after his second marriage, his first wife came home post-mortem. She was seen by the children's nanny and the sound of her silk dress heard along the corridors. The family locked up the drawing room as it was the ghost's favourite place to manifest. Eventually the rector of the parish banished the ghost to a cupboard which was then boarded up, although sometimes the former wife could be heard behind the planks.

Mr Blondel left instructions that on his deathbed the church bell should be tolled to show his passing. However, when Blondel died the bell remained silent, so his ghost took to climbing the church tower and throwing crockery around in the rectory kitchen. Thirteen members of clergy gathered and locked the ghost in a cupboard.

A cashier in this store during the 1970s watched a woman in old fashioned clothing walk in and move from sight down an aisle. After fifteen minutes, the cashier grew concerned and tried to find the woman, but she had vanished with no possible way to leave the store.

When the bones were buried in a churchyard, the ghost never returned.
