Elizabeth Downing

Location: Woodstock - Bear Hotel
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Date / Time: Late twentieth century
Further Comments: This ghost's footsteps can be pacing across the floor in Room 16, and lights turn themselves on when the ghost is close enough to a switch. Elizabeth's son is also said to haunt the building, and Room 12 is said to be haunted by a workman who fell (or was pushed) from the roof around the seventeenth century.


The Royalist Devil

Location: Woodstock - Manor House
Type: Poltergeist
Date / Time: October & November 1649
Further Comments: Several Parliamentary Commissioners who stayed in this building were set upon by unseen hands - they were thrown out of bed at night, glass was thrown at them, candles blown out... When the Commissioners left the building in early November, the noisy spirit disappeared.
