Former witches' prison goes up for sale

A former prison regarded to be one of Britain's most haunted buildings has a long and disturbing history.
Dating back to medieval times, the prison - which was converted to a residence in the 1800s - was known as 'The Cage' due to its use as a place of incarceration for suspected witches.

Situated in St Osyth, Essex, the building has been a hotbed of paranormal activity for years and has attracted investigators from all over the world.

Visitors and former residents have reported sightings of a 'satanic-looking' goat, encounters with 'growling' shadows and all manner of other strange sounds and occurrences.

The current owner stayed at the property for only a few years due to the amount of activity going on.
So great is the building's haunted reputation in fact that it has even served as the inspiration for a book - Spirits of The Cage - as well as the TV docudrama - True Horror: The Witches Prison.

"The superstitious among you will probably think twice about even setting foot in the property, let alone wanting to live there," said Miles Shipside of Rightmove.

"The building certainly has a unique atmosphere about it, but I'll leave it for others to decide whether this is because of paranormal activity or not."

No one's gonna buy a witch prison without witches! That'd be like buying Swedish meatballs without Swedes!

it does, it helps get attention, look how many people who didnt wanna work a real job write some made up book about a haunting and cash in, even the writer for the warrens came forward they were frauds the book was fiction, if i could deal with people i could do b&b here like they did in the 40s, plenty supporting the joints haunted, i would be booked months, years in advance, and the fun part guests would leave hailing this joint haunted. †
