Ghosts & Hauntings

The ghost in the outhouse

C Jordan recounts this harrowing tale from his childhood, together with his two brothers he recalls confronting what any child of his age would consider the stuff of terror - the ghost in the outhouse of his grandmother's back yard.
C Jordan: When I was five years old my parents moved the family from our old town of Wigan to a new home in Preston. Both “towns” are in the North-West of England, not far apart, and since those days Preston has become a city. Wigan had been home to our family since at least the middle of the 19thcentury. It is a town that had built its history on coal mining and industry, and the housing at the time of this story, typically, consisted mainly of streets of terraced housing, with the fronts directly onto the pavements."

That's just a stock picture to represent ghostly 'mist' i'd imagine, its not intended to be a real ghost photograph.

My grandad lived in a mining village and used to love telling us spooky stories about the mine and the like. At the time, wee me believed every word but now I think he may've just been trying to scare the grandkids!

I'd be peeved if I was bound to an outhouse. Talk about a whole other Hell altogether. PEW!
