Back in October I had the privilege to do some Freelance work for Reader’s Digest UK. If you are into ghosts, unnerving noises, and mysterious happenings in eerie mansions then this article is for you!
Here is an excerpt from the article:
“This haunted townhouse claims to be home to the spirit of a young woman who committed suicide in the attic. Constructed in the late 18th century, the home first belonged to the British Prime Minister George Canning who lived there between 1770 and 1827.
The attic seems to be the on-going theme of spooks in this home. Legend has it that a young man was locked in the attic room and fed through a hole in the door until he went mad and died. Another story claims a little girl, who was killed by a sadistic servant, haunts the attic room.
After Canning, the home was rented to one Mr. Myers, who had recently been abandoned by his fiancée. He reportedly locked himself in the attic room and slowly went insane until his death.
In 1879, Mayfair Magazine reported that a maid who had stayed in the attic room had gone mad whilst working there, and died in an Asylum.
The day after this was reported, a nobleman wanted to see for himself if the home was haunted and stayed the night in the attic room. He died the next day. The coroner pronounced ‘fright’ the cause of death.”
