Cemeteries near you

Postby Dellycat » Sat Feb 11, 2012 6:09 pm

Do you have a cemetery near you, is it old, have you been for a visit?
Some are older than we realise and many headstones tell stories of the past. If you are lucky, there may be a ghost or two floating around.
Either way, we would love to hear about cemeteries close to you :grin:

I recentley moved out of my family home and the area i am now has a very very old cemetary with some great old buildings and tombs.

I take my dog Charlie there and i feel everytime we go that im being watched and we are not alone also he is very very alert when we are there. I will take some pics when next i go.

Its also a great place to watch Foxes as they have some great dens down one end of the cemetary.

I live in a very old Saxon village in Devon, England called Northlew. The church itself dates back to William the conquorer with the actual houses and going back much further (well plots and foundations) I also run the broadband for the whole village as we are so rural and some of the kit is actually on top of the church tower. If it ever goes off (any time day or night) its me that has to go up there. :(

I love Churches and must say I know most ghosts don't live there as they haunt the places they loved in life or had experiances at. Now saying all that. I visit lots of churches and usually get a happy feel in them.. our church not so in fact its a very eirie place and you get the distinct feeling of being watched and not in a good way. The oldest grave I've found so far is 1538 which is next to the alter but know there are older remains there going back over 1000 years.

Many a night I've sat up there fixing cables and having a very one sided conversation with whoever it is to just leave me alone while I do my work haha It's quite high and you have to crawl over the church bells to get to the roof so the last thing I would want is some ghost spooking me lol

Equally, I moved from Tintagel cornwall about 3 years ago and used to love going up to the church there on the headland and that had a happy feel to it, even though a lot of the graves there are from ship wreck victims but it didn't have the same feel as Northlew, Northlew without a doubt has ghosties living in it! lol

Here are a couple from Tintagel

O my goodness Jenn, so does mine, well actually mine is Robert the count of Mortain who was williams half brother, my mum did all the family history so if you are related to him that means I might be related to you! lol If you are then I got a few more surprised for you in our family tree! including one George Sparry who was Gentleman to the bed chamber of Henry VIII (Its more exciting than it sounds) a few murderers... one poisoner.. border revers who used to nip into England and rape the women and steal their sheep and for a time we owned Tintagel including Tintagel Castle, alleged birth place of King Arthur. Interestingly, most of the castles in the uk were built by Robert after the invasion. wow totally small world... so I can call you sis now then??????? LOL xoxo

Love your pics Sean, and the stories you told. Those churches look nice and old, my favourites. That job up at the top of the church sounds a bit hairy though! :roll:
I have been aware for some time that my church has a ghost. I experienced it, unaware of the stories about it and was told later that it is the spirit of a former vicar, and a number of people have had funny experiences there, such as noises, unexplained smells (my experience) and odd things happening. It's obviously someone who loved being in the church and visits regularly to keep an eye on it! I don't think anyone has reported seeing him, but I'll let you know if they do. :bigwink:
