Sheffield Ghost Stories & Sightings

Recommended Posts

Is this Boots on High Street? I worked in Van Allan fashion on High St in 1980/81 and the basement stockroom was definitely haunted. It was one of those places where you just knew someone was watching you.

 

I remember when there was a basement sales floor in Boots but never knew about a haunted stockroom. Is the basement still used as a sales floor or did it just become one big stockroom?

Are they camping out near the stocksbridge bypass most nights ??? I wonder when the last sighting of the monk was ? I would love to stop on the bridge

Do their sleeping bags lift off them and spin in the air? That would make camping a bit of a trial I should imagine.

 

I think stopping on a bridge is probably achievable. Go on....treat yourself! The monk could do with a chat.

I'm just concerned about why they're not paying their taxes...

If this is the High Street Boots ... maybe its something to do with its proximity to the old Marples Pub and those people tragically killed in the 2nd word war by a bomb when it was a hotel?

The story about the David Wilson home was credible until the spinning duvet such a shame

I wonder how the concept of the "ghost" first started, and also "UFO's". Ghost and UFO stories inspire people to perhaps make up their own but it had to begin somewhere.

If you read the opening post, the purpose of this thread is to tell Sheffield ghost stories etc. It is not to discuss whether ghosts exist and its certainly not to ridicule people that believe they do.

 

Posts have been removed. Feel free to start a thread discussing the existence or non existence if thats what youd like to talk about.

Thank you! I tried to make this point a couple of months ago :D

Didn’t one of the policeman on the stocksbridge bypass admit making it up about the sightings years ago ???

I think you're thinking of one of the security guards who said that the part about the children singing ring o roses never happened.

 

I find this very interesting as that's the only account of the children from the original story and yet to this day investigators claim to see them or contact them.

 

As far as I am aware he still insists the rest of the story about the monk actually happened though.

 

If this is the case I have no idea where the children part came from or how it got woven into the myth as fact, I suspect it was probably a case of Chinese Whispers.
