The greatest multiple haunting of all time is the battle of
Edgehill in the Civil War Period.
Many of the witnesses were still alive, and could identify comrades. What on earth is going on?
King Charles I ordered an enquiry. I believe, that this is the only "ghost story"that ended up in the National Archives
Always keep an open mind about things; But make sure your brain doesn't fall out.
The interesting thing is that Edgehill is close to Warmington, Warwickshire. I have checked, and Warmington village did exist at the time of the English Civil War. It got it's name from the person who once owned the land. Interesting that there is a double 'War' reference in that address. I think that this manifestation was a set-up job, just as with Heidi, the ghost dog. Remember that Heidi means 'the battle maiden', and that Manton means '[from the] Hero's Farm'.
well that's one heck of a "set up" what about the many witnesses and the fact that the "apparition" appeared quite a number of times? they can't all have been lying or mistaken,surely?
What's so hard to imagine? My wife was caught-out every time, because she sincerely wanted to believe that the ghost of Heidi was real. The apparition of Heidi occurred repetitiously. If people sincerely want to believe in something, then they will ignore the incongruities of the situation.
The castle, now a romantic ruin, is reputed to be one of the most haunted in the British Isles. It has numerous legends associated with it, and although now only a shell of its former glory, it retains an air of its troubled history.
