Most Haunted Places In Britain: Borley Rectory

For a house labeled as the most haunted house in England it’s little wonder there’s no shortage in ghostly experiences. One of the earliest sighting and perhaps most famous us that of a nun. Which may seem strange given that there used to be a monastry on the site, one would expect a monk rather than a nun.

Firefighters Ghostly Handprint- Unsolved Mysteries- Francis Leavy, a career firefighter for the Chicago Fire Department, was hard at work on maintenance and clean-up around the engine house when his co-workers around him felt he was behaving quite aloof and not his usual self.

Firefighters Ghostly Handprint

Helltown
The excellent website Ghosts of Ohio did an impressive job of researching the Hell Town stories, and concluded that the area was first called “Mutant Town” when the federal government bought up the land in the area in 1974 to create the Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Area. They boarded up most of the houses they bought and put US Government “No Trespassing” signs everywhere because there had been a chemical dump in the area. So naturally everyone assumed there were slimy mutants wandering around murdering people.
THE SATANIC CHURCH

This one goes along with allegations of satan worshipping made against the entire town. I’ve heard that all the people in the area worship satan , and that there are animal mutilations and satanic symbols all over the place.
All of which leads to the church, which is called Mother of Sorrows in the real world. Supposedly, black masses are conducted here, and there are supposed to be upside down crosses all over the building. As it turns out, the upsde down cross shape is just a feature of gothic revival architecture. 
THE SCHOOL BUS
This one has some creepy elements. A haunted school bus with all the seats removed is said to sit at the edge of the woods in Hell Town. Legend has it that the kids it was hauling on its last trip were killed by a crazy killer/bunch of crazy killers. They say sometimes you can see either the kids or their killer/killers inside. If it’s a single killer, he sits in the back, smoking a cigarette.
THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE/FUNERAL HOME

There’s a slaughterhouse not far from the cemetery—or so they say. The Ghosts of Ohio website reports that it’s just part of an old barn. Over time it acquired a reputation as a haunted slaughterhouse where you would see faces if you looked through the windows at night.

The Tuesday Haunting: Eilean Donan Castle -

Eilean Donan Castle is one of the most visited attractions in the Scottish highlands. Found on an island, this waterfront castle near the village of Dornie was established way back in the early 1200s, and thanks to restorations in the 1900s, it looks as if it has had little trouble standing the test of time. In fact, you might find it hard to believe that the beautiful stone structure was mostly demolished during a Jacobite uprising in 1719. After lingering in a state of ruin for approximately 200 years, one Colonel MacRae came to the rescue with a plan for restoration plan, and today, Eilean Donan Castle is among the most picturesque castles in the entire UK.

Harold Holt Disappearance - Unsolved Mysteries - It has become one of Australia’s most legendary mysteries, fuelled over the years by numerous claims and speculation. However, it’s unlikely we will ever know what happened to Harold Holt. His disappearance while swimming has overshadowed his many achievements as a politician in a career that spanned 32 years.He was born on the 5th of August 1908, and was the eldest of 2 boys. Between 1913 and 1919 he attended three different schools in Sydney and Adelaide, before being enrolled at Wesley College in Melbourne in 1921. Three years later his mother died, instilling some would later say “a sense of loneliness” that prevailed throughout the rest of his life.In 1927 he began a law degree and attended the University of Melbourne, excelling at sports as well as debating and essay writing. After graduating in 1930, he found that he could not find work as a Barrister due to the Great Depression and was drawn to politics around the same time.At the age of 27 he became one of the youngest MP’s at that time. Holt was one of the first MP’s to join the Liberal Party when its was established by Robert Menzies in 1945 and administered many portfolios in his subsequent career, being Minister for Air and Civil Aviation, Labour and National Service and Minister for Immigration. With Menzies support, Holt (now Treasurer) was elected leader of the Liberal Party when Menzies retired after his second term and on Australia Day 1966 (the same day 3 children disappeared in Adelaide by the name of Beaumont) he was sworn in as Australia’s new Prime Minister.In his short term as PM, he faced controversy regarding Australia’s commitment to the Vietnam War, after significantly increasing military involvement and defending the US and its President Lyndon B. Johnson. He also faced allegations of allegedly misusing VIP aircraft and his leadership style and public image were questioned by his own party colleagues.On the morning of Sunday 17th December 1967 Holt, accompanied by three friends and two bodyguards, drove from Melbourne to Cheviot Beach, one of Holt’s favourite swimming and snorkelling spots. Noted for being a strong swimmer, he had swam this area before, which was known for its dangerous rip tides and strong currents.Soon after entering the water, he was seen being dragged under a wave and was never seen again.A search soon afterwards by Police, the Army, Navy divers, Air Force helicopters and volunteers still could not find any trace of his body. No formal inquest or investigation was ever conducted due to it being “a waste of time and money”, however Victorian Police compiled a 108-page report and in 2005 a coroner ruled that Holt had drowned in accidental circumstances.What is known is that at the time of Holt going missing, he was suspected of being in poor health after collapsing in Parliament some months earlier, blaming a “vitamin deficiency”, however many senior Liberals suspected a heart condition. He also had a shoulder injury at the time and was said to be on Morphine, his doctor telling him not to swim or play tennis.Claims started surfacing soon after that he might have faked his death to be with a mistress.

Will the remains of Harold Holt ever be found?
Was there something more sinister, perhaps paranormal, behind him going missing?
Did he fake his own death and if so,why?
Or was one of Australia’s PM’s an Asian spy?
