Firstly,I just want to say that this story I am about to write about is not a ghost I have encountered, but one my elder cousin, who I trust very much and would not lie about such things, experienced some time ago.
The park by the bridge which was the location of the event with the 'Ghost car' I had took place, an old house lies just near the other end of the park (not near the bridge). It is a old house, built circa Tudor/Victorian times, and you can tell when you look at it. It is probably the house of the park-keeper, but it had been closed off for many years my cousin says, and the only way to access it is obviously by forced entry and trespassing.
So, some time before now, my cousin and some friends of his were walking home, going away from the canal. His journey route home takes him past the park and the old house.
As he walked past, he told me that he and his friends looked up at the top floor of the house, in the largest window. He reports that he and his friends all saw an elderly women, who was looking out of the window, unaware of being watched.
But,my cousin also told me something else about this figure he and his mates had seen-he says that one of his friends was told about the people who used to live there.
According to tales, years ago, around the 1890's,a family of two parents and their 3 children lived in that very house. But, for unknown reasons, the family decided to move away, but left the eldest child in the house by accident. They could not get her out, as they had handed over the keys to the people who technically own the house. They had no choice but to leave the child in the house.
And does the young girl wait for her parents to come and take her home to this day?
