To think there’s a ghost or an axe murderer in the house!

Currently stopping in a holiday home. It’s as creepy AF with noises galore.

Just heard a very distinctive ‘it really happened’ noise. DH went to investigate and found nothing.

DC’s are all ok but images of ‘Jason’ and Poltergeist are keeping me awake shock

You should be ok, church grounds are consecrated. So if you believe in woo, you can also believe that the consecration acts as a physical barrier to any spectral gatecrashers

Are they not usually deconsecrated if the land/building is to be used for something else?

That said I don't think there's anything sinister going on!

Is the chapel in Hampshire ?

When I moved into my house I was up half the night one night hearing people thumping about and trying to break in/into my garage.

Turns out I had put the dishwasher on overnight and the water pipes bang and bash like there's a war going on downstairs.

Possibly heating/water pipes just having a clang at some point?

I once stayed in converted chapel that I felt was haunted! It was small and open plan!

I wonder if it's the same place..

I never saw any ghosts or anything but I always felt creeped out and I thought my things moved over night

I lived in a converted chapel and it was seriously spooky. Lots of weird things happened there and I was glad to move. The resident ghost took a dislike to the carpet fitter and he fled, ended up in a and e as he thought he was having a heart attack due to the shock 👻👻👻👻

It's just the house settling.

When houses cool down or warm up, the structures shrink or expand and it makes noises that's all. Also the same for plumbing. It's really nothing sinister at all.

Do you have the number of the local exorcist? 👻

Made it to morning (late I might add due to being up two hours in the night) and didn’t watch ‘ghosts’

Hopefully the rest of our stay won’t require an update!

Did you watch ‘Ghosts’ on BBC last night?

That might explain it.

3am is the witching hour OP, just saying......

Glad you made it to the morning op 😱

LittleElle Tue 16-Apr-19 06:51:54

I live in a converted chapel. Can confirm they are haunted

Doesn’t sound like there’s a place for an axe murderer to hide. So probably a ghost. Could even be a ghost of mice and bats

notsodimwit Tue 16-Apr-19 03:09:42

Oh no😯 then the bats/mice could be in the room with you

Ginormoustrawberry Tue 16-Apr-19 03:06:30

@notsodimwit no attic 😳

Basilneedswaterandsun Tue 16-Apr-19 03:02:24

Safety in numbers OP!

notsodimwit Tue 16-Apr-19 03:02:10

It's mice or bat's in the attic🦇🐀

notsodimwit Tue 16-Apr-19 02:59:43

Oh no😱👻! I hate scary places

Ginormoustrawberry Tue 16-Apr-19 02:53:41

Not as heavy as a book. Maybe keys or a phone, something lighter.

It’s quite small and open plan and there is nothing obviously out of place.

We are both now wide awake though confused

Basilneedswaterandsun Tue 16-Apr-19 02:51:19

Like a book falling off a table?
Can see why you’d be scared but there’ll be an innocent explanation I’m sure

MarthasGinYard Tue 16-Apr-19 02:51:02

"They're heeeuuurrrrrrrrr"

Ginormoustrawberry Tue 16-Apr-19 02:49:32

Like something had fallen off something.

It’s a converted chapel too which isn’t helping my imagination!
