He added: "There was a survey done in England in the 19th century asking if people had experienced a ghost."Of the 27,000 people that replied, 10 per cent claimed they had and when they analysed the results, the most dense amount of people were in Oxford. We're the ghost capital. Can be me, but I find a claim to be the "Ghost Capital" based on a more than 100 year old survey not really valid. Anyway, nice way for him to spend the time I guess, copying and bundling other peoples stories... And being able to sell it at his Ghost-tours

It is nice to see all the stories for an area grouped together. You do have a very valid point though Deva.
