Church of St Peter and St Paul, Ellesborough
The Parish Church of St Peter and St Paul in Ellesborough is a Grade II listed building dating from around the late 14 century. It was suggested by Gerald Line in ‘The Church on the Hill’ that a figure seen in the church wearing 17th century clothing was Rev Robert Wallis, rector here between 1635 – 1637 and 1665 – 1667. But it would appear that the church has a reputation for having several more ghosts.
The apparitions of two women in pre war WWII clothing have apparently also been seen sat at the back of the church before gliding through a wall.
The church organist has complained about the organs pedals being interfered with and a woman in white also reputedly appears beside the organ, walks do walks down the aisle disappearing close to the South door.
A man wearing a dark cloak has also apparently been seen a couple of times on the Church path before vanishing.
I find it unusual that one building would have this many different reports of experiences over the last century.
