Haunted Shrewsbury DAY THREE – St Nicholas Presbyterian Chapel

When I was a little ‘un and up town with me nan the vicar invited us in for a coffee to escape the sudden downpour but our first ghoss here inna quite so welcome. Bloody Jack (who you hopefully read about in yesterday’s post) has been seen and heard banging on the main door demanding entry, did he flee here to claim sanctuary and escape the angry mob pursuing him? This is the only case I have heard of the same Shrewsbury ghost being sin in two different places, if you know different please get in touch. Now the more observant of you are probably thinking “but that chapel was only built in 1870” and you’re correct but it was built on the site of an earlier Norman chapel.

Remains of the earlier chapel

The church is said to be whum to four Christian ghosses, two females and two males who “exude a nice feeling”. At least one of whom can be a little mischievous as during cashing up they have bin known to remove all of the money frum the cash box and neatly line the coins up alongside. These visitors made an appearance during the renovations in 2014 although I saw a few spooky characters afore that when I had to pop in to pay me poll tax.

Pop back in tomorrow if you can for number 27 Pride Hill, oh! and dunna have nightmares.
