Hampshire Ghosts, Folklore and Forteana

Tall Man

Location: Winchester - Private house along Quarry Road
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Date / Time: 1970s?
Further Comments: A tall man wearing a black cloak, a woman dressed in white, and a figure resembling a nun are all said to have haunted this property. Two exorcisms failed to remove the entities.

A Man Vanishes

Location: Winchester - Office building along the High Street
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Date / Time: 2005
Further Comments: Two men sitting in the manager's room eating lunch spotted a figure climbing the stairs, heading towards the top office. No-one should have been in that area, so both men ran upstairs to apprehend the intruder. However, there was no one present, and it would have been impossible for an intruder to pass the men without being seen.

Henry

Location: Winchester - Jolly Farmer inn
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Date / Time: Twentieth century
Further Comments: Hanged somewhere close to the inn for theft, the shade now torments the bar staff by periodically playing with the pumps.

Driverless Coach

Location: Winchester - Ellingham Lane
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Date / Time: Unknown
Further Comments: The driverless phantom coach is said to contain Lady Alice Lisle, one of three locations where her ghost haunts. Though the coach and horses have not been seen for many years, it has been said that the sound of a carriage can still be heard.

Clanking Woman

Location: Winchester - Hampshire Chronicle, High Street
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Date / Time: October 2001
Further Comments: This entity has been reported in the part of the building that housed cottages and a small printing press, which has been offered as an explanation to the sound which accompanies her.

Lady Alice Becomsawe Lisle

Location: Winchester - Moyles Court
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Date / Time: Unknown
Further Comments: After her execution in 1685, the ghost of Lady Alice Becomsawe Lisle was reported in three areas of her old neighbourhood. At her former home, Moyles Court, she could be heard walking along corridors; her disembodied footsteps always accompanied with the swoosh of her silken dress.

Starving Woman

Location: Winchester - Hyde Tavern
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Date / Time: Twentieth century
Further Comments: This ghost, when flesh and bone, was turned away from the Tavern during a cold winter's night. She died soon after, and to take revenge, her ghost took up residence in the building. The spirit now pulls bedding off sleeping guests.

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.
