Strange experience in my old home
When I was 17 years old I shared the downstairs flat in a large house in Highgate, north London with my parents. My mother would hear a bell ringing but could never find the source and she would often smell cooking but again could never trace the source. We had a cellar and one time I was sitting on the last step of the slatted wooden stairs chopping wood for the fire when I distinctly felt someone looking at me from behind which was the back of the cellar. I told nobody about this but one evening I was talking to my mum and she mentioned that she had felt eyes looking at her in the cellar.. I told her of my experience and she was stunned.
One Friday night I returned home from the pub a bit worse for wear and I was soaked from the continual rain that was falling and went straight to my bed. I’d closed my eyes but I sensed something near me and on opening my eyes I saw a priestlike form with a black hat on his head. I said "go away" . I then went to sleep.
Now 30 years later and I’m living in Brighton I took my daughter up to London to show her my old haunts. We went back to that house where I used to live and knocked on the door. The Lady of the house (most trustworthy) let us in after I explained to her that I used to live there. Over a coffee and cigarette I took a chance and told her of my experience many years back. She went very pensive and then she said that her daughter had seen a form with a black hat on its head standing on the landing which frightened her but on looking again it had gone.
I was stunned as was my daughter. The lady of the house said that the atmosphere was sometimes strange.
I did have her email address to keep in touch but I have since lost it .
Any comments please.
