Haunted France: Catacombs of Paris
''Paris may be one of the most beautiful cities in the world, but when you factor in the creepy dark tunnels winding underneath, it’s more like City of the Dead. The Catacombs of Paris is one of the eeriest and most haunted places in the world, and is also considered the largest grave in Europe. This underground labyrinth with skeleton-lined walls and chambers filled with human bones is home to the remains of about six million people. Opened in the 18th century, it was part of the city’s efforts to decongest its space. The deceased would be buried above ground, and then their skeleton remains would be dug-up and placed in the catacombs. There are several stories of people getting lost in the catacombs and never being found alive again.
One such case was a man named Philibert Aspairt who vanished in the catacombs in 1793 and was found only in 1804. His corpse was discovered only a few feet from the exit. Strange orbs, spectral lights, voices in the walls, touches from invisible sources, and other paranormal sightings are reportedly considered regular occurrences in the catacombs.''
I've been there twice. It really is something to see in person.
Heard the coach with a quite a few people. I was at art school at the time. You could hear the coach pass on the wind clearly and fast. Was quite something.
"Blickling Hall, near Aylsham in north Norfolk, is said to be haunted by the ghost of Anne Boleyn.
The apparition is said to appear there every year on the anniversary of her execution.
Anne, who was the second wife of King Henry VIII, was beheaded on 19 May 1536 just days before her husband married Jane Seymour.
Her ghost is said to draw up to the door of the stately home in a carriage pulled by headless horses and driven by a headless coachman.
The house was built on the site of a former manor which was once home to Anne Boleyn, who was the mother of Queen Elizabeth I. Some people believe it was her birthplace, although there is no evidence to support this.
Anne's father, Sir Thomas Boleyn, is also said to haunt Blickling Hall, a National Trust property."
My own photos. Took these in 2017 when I stayed in a cottage on site a different time to the art school one.
I watched that movie the Nun. And wondered if it was at all inspired a tiny bit by the Borley Rectory hauntings. It's something I grew up with. Was apparently a French Nun who was killed there that was one of the main ghosts.
Take all this with a pinch of salt. But just had a look: https://www.esquire.com/entertainment/a23106047/the-nun-movie-true-story-ed-lorraine-warren/
There are so many tales here in the UK of stuff. But it is fascinating and ancient at times.
