Hampshire - Paranormal Database Records

Round Table

Location: Winchester - Winchester Castle
Type: Legend
Date / Time: Still present
Further Comments: The Round Table that is on display here, alleged to belong to King Arthur, is more than likely a fake made many years after his death.


Monks

Location: Winchester - Winchester Cathedral
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Date / Time: Twentieth century
Further Comments: Disappearing at the knees, these phantom monks reportedly walk on the original floor of the building. In 1957 a photographer caught several male figures dressed in medieval garb. Saint Swithun is buried outside the cathedral, as per his wish - on one fateful 15 July, his body was moved inside the building; the rain began to fall and did not stop until Swithun's body was moved back outside. Now, popular legends say that if it rains on 15 July (St Swithun's Day), it will rain for another forty days.


Grey Lady

Location: Winslade - Spring Wood
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Date / Time: Unknown
Further Comments: Part of this wooded area is haunted by a ghostly woman in grey.


Small Figure in Brown

Location: Worthy Down - Disused railway course near the former Winchester Junction
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Date / Time: 03 February 1980, 14:30h
Further Comments: A husband and wife were walking along the disused junction taking photographs, when without warning a small figure wearing a muddy coloured coat rose from the ground no more than four metres in front of them. The figure wore a hood, but the parts of the face which could be seen resembled a child. The figure also had slanted dark eyes. The husband grabbed his wife's hand, said 'hello' and took a step towards the figure - it turned to the left and vanished.


No Touching the Tankard

Location: Yateley - White Lion public house
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Date / Time: 2000s
Further Comments: This phantom, thought to be James Rogers (the first licensee), has a particular liking for his tankard. When the tankard was last moved, the alarm system kicked in during the early hours of the morning until a peace offering was made.
