Sefton Park - The Ghost of Sefton Park.

In Victorian times Sefton Parks delightful fairy glen was always a popular meeting point for courting couples. The Glen is spanned by a unique Iron Bridge and it was this bridge that Oliver and Cathleen used as their regular meeting point. Oliver was from an upper class background and his beautiful Cathleen was from a middle class background but despite this class
difference they where madly and deeply in love. However one cold Valentines night as they met on the bridge, Oliver had some devastating news. He told Cathleen that he was being forced into an arranged marriage. This happened a lot in Victorian times when two wealthy families would arrange a marriage so that their wealth would combine and they would become a greater force in Liverpool's business world and this was what was happening to poor Oliver.

Despite this, Oliver begged Cathleen to meet him in 12 months time, on Valentines night at 11.00 pm on the bridge at Sefton Park. Cathleen reluctantly agreed!

12 Months passed and Oliver stood on the bridge waiting and hoping that Cathleen would appear.11 o'clock chimed , 5 past, 10 past, the quarter hour chimed and Oliver was just about to leave when he saw at the far end of the bridge, his beautiful Cathleen. Oliver's heart leapt with joy and he ran to her with outstretched arms. But as he reached her she passed right through his body. She Turned. Gave Oliver a delightful smile and a gentile wave and
Cathleen vanished into the darkness!

Oliver was of course shocked and devastated, but on making further enquiries he discovered that poor Cathleen had been struck by the dreadful Cholera epidemic and she had died that fateful night at exactly 11.15 but her last dying words where " I must meet my love on the bridge at Sefton Park" Her Ghostly spirit kept that tryst.

But it is said that now, every Valentine night at exactly 11.15, both Oliver and Cathleen mysteriously appear and they cross the bridge hand in hand and this signifies a true love, which will live forever.

Broughton Hall High School - West Derby - Liverpool

I consider Broughton Hall High school a haunted place, it is located on yew tree lane, which by local reputation, is a very active place for ghosts. The hall has been open long before WW2 and in its grounds is a convent, still occupied by nuns. I am convinced that the hall is haunted because I was a student there.

I used to get to the school very early in the morning when know-one, except for the
caretaker and a few teachers where in the school, I experienced cold spots and warm
spots in some of the old classrooms, and I think there might be hidden corridors or rooms that haven't been opened. I therefore consider it to be an active place mainly because it is situated in Yew Tree lane, West Derby, and because it has been host to over a million children in its lifetime. It is also reputed to have had one of its students commit suicide.

Thank you for reading this
