This is a very recent haunting in Wooburn, the lady who experienced this has asked me not to mention her name.

” In 2012 I was renting a house in Northcroft, Wooburn Green. I had been living there happily with my 2 teenage daughters for 6 months or so. One evening the 3 of us were sat together watching television when we noticed what appeared to be a large ball of smoke cross the room from right to left above the TV. It was touching the ceiling but seemed to be about 12 inches tall & a couple of feet wide. It moved across the ceiling quite quickly & all 3 of us saw it. My daughters were completely freaked out, screaming & running to the far side of the room.
Within seconds it just faded away but we could find no explanation for what we saw.

Mystery Month – Flackwell Heath Haunting

A lady who used to live in a flat in Oakwood, Flackwell Heath during 1990 has kindly sent in this story but wishes to stay anonymous.

My mother would often have the boys to stay on a weekend & she told me that they were very well-behaved. They always…

This story of a sighting in Wendover Road, happened in 1980 –

“My family lived in the white house at the top of Wendover Road, opposite Claytons school for 40+ years before Mum & Dad moved away earlier this year.  I moved away quite a few years ago now, but it was our family home and I grew up there.

Dad worked for Thames Water and my sister and I often played in the Thames Water pumping station grounds in school holidays. 

On one occasion, whilst playing hide & seek with my sister and our friends, I saw a ghost of a man on the south west corner of the 70s pumping building. This would have been around 1980.  He was a man dressed in a blue or green parka type jacket, approx. 35/40 years old. He was a kind soul (at least he didn’t scare me!) and just walked…
