The Crying GirlEdit
The ghost of a girl has been seen and heard in the house, its said she starved to death after her parents died of plague. She only appears to haunt the upper floor of the house.
In the Middle Ages a family owned the house, when plague hit the city, locals began sealing people within their homes, the parents got the plague so the family was sealed within the house, sadly the lass was immune to the illness but the locals wouldnt believe her so she was left sealed in the house to starve to death, alongside the rotting corpses of her parents.
Her crying has been heard, in the 1950s 2 children saw her crying on one of there beds, she has also been seen at the small window.
