I live in Hampshire England and have done all my life, I live right near many world famous ghost hot spots such as Beaulieu Abbey, the Isle of Wight and Netley Abbey. My story is not the most scariest or thrilling, but it is true, it is also my first and only paranormal experience. When I turned 18 I got a job in the next town to me Hythe in a little 18th century pub called The Lord Nelson.
The whole street of shop's alongside and including The Nelson are connected and were built at the same time so it's a very pretty place, frequented by tourists. Any way I had been working there approximately half a year and was stood behind the bar half way down it in an arch way which would have been the back door to the original pub the rest of the bar was a new extension. It was closed at one end so only had one way in or out, it was also a quiet day about 4 people in the pub at that time. As I was pulling a pint above my left shoulder (the closed side of the bar so any one there would have to walk past me and probably brush past me as it was a very narrow bar) I heard a deep man's voice right by my head ask 'Are we here?'. Just thinking it was another member of staff I instantly looked up and left and saw no one there, then I looked to my right to see no one there either, I then did a 360 wondering where this man had gone? Feeling baffled I slowly began to realise I must have heard a ghost, quickly finishing off the round I was serving I rushed off to tell my colleague who was the longest serving member off staff at The Nelson and also rented out upstairs.
I said 'Nicky I heard a voice!', and before I said anything else she said 'what in the archway?' my eyes widened 'yes how did you know?' she said people always hear things there. I was shocked and that night as all the staff sat down for a drink at lock up she told me stories of things she and other people had experienced in the pub, all in the original part of the pub. I'm 20 now and still believe what I heard was a ghost, I didn't get any feeling of fear or loneliness some people say they feel when having a paranormal experience just head that voice.
