Borley Rectory

Borley is certainly amongst the most publicized haunted places in England. Every type of haunting imaginable has been reported there by thousands of witnesses throughout the last century.

Borley Rectory
A nun-like apparition has been seen many times which is believed to be the ghost of Marie Lairre, a woman murdered by a member of the Waldgrave family who lived at Borley for centuries. She was often seen near to the Rectory accompanied by a coach drawn by headless horses. A well-known psychic investigator, Harry Price, was brought in to record the disturbances, which resulted in the Rectory becoming even more famous.

In 1937, Price leased the newly abandoned rectory for a year and began to examine the continuing phenomena. A team of 40 investigators recorded such occurrences as violently moving objects, severe temperature changes and strange noises and smells.

Exactly eleven months after a spirit predicted the burning of Borley Rectory during a sťance, a lamp appeared to 'knock itself over', and the building burst into flame.
