This is a question Halloween

‘WoooOOoOOoo’ intones Richard McBeef. ‘WooOOooo’. Halloween is upon us, that time of pre Christian spirit worship, the fear of the unknown and the undead….and plastic skeletons from Asda.

What better time to hear your scariest accounts: when have you been most petrified? Ever had an encounter that you couldn’t rationally explain? Perhaps you yourself are a spooky ghost? Do tell.

My family used to have a cottage out on the Welsh borders
Staying there as a child was pretty scary - it was very isolated, down a track at the edge of a forest, at night it got so dark that you couldn't see your own hand in front of your face and the toilet was outside in a shed that was invariably infested with huge, horrible spiders.

Scarier than that though, was being trapped as an adult at a recent family barbecue by a slightly dotty aunt while she recalled all the times she'd felt the presence of spirits there, how it was haunted by this ghost and that ghost, how there was a spectral carriage with horses that used to ride up and down the track at night etc. etc. while I had to keep nodding with a straight face.

Wales. *nods*

I happen to be in a cottage in Wales right now.
Not particularly creepy but plumbing noises and oddly-placed mirrors and pictures make it a bit odd.
Mind you, I should probably be more worried about weather-baloon type balls preventing me from leaving.

Ooh, are you there?
I went a couple of years back with my black-and-white jacket but the tide was in so I couldn't run along the beach in it :(

I haven't run about on the beach this time either.
The tide times and the weather didn't work out. Still, The Village is a pleasant place to stay.
