My boyfriend and I moved into our flat about 2 and a half years ago. When we first veiwed it, it was obvious that a girl was living there at the time, make up, perfume and just generally girly stuff led me to believe this. Anyhow on the first few days I kept seeing a figure of an old man, bald head, wispy grey beard, wearing a red waistcoat. I also got a bad feeling down one end of the room. My boyfriend never saw anything, and dismissed it as an over active imagination. In time we met our next door neighbour who had lived there for a lot longer.
Whilst chatting to him I told him of my experiences, he looked quite shocked and went white as a sheet.
A year before we had moved in, an old man had lived there for the past 36 years. He matched my description to a T. Also he had died in his sleep, his bed situated right where I had the bad feelings down that end of the room.
Also one day much later and in broad daylight I was making a cup of tea in the kitchen when I saw what I can only describe as a small humanoid figure bent over with blackened, bumpy skin. It was scurrying just past the kitchen window. It was as if the thing had been severely burnt. I ran out the kitchen to investagate but saw no sign of this creature.
A few days later I decided to research the history of our road and surrounding area. It turned out back in Victorian times there used to be a theatre, that caught fire and many people died in the fire, trapped in the building, men, women and children died in that fire.
Was it maybe the ghost of one of the children I saw?
