Ghost Hunting in Newport Pagnell (yes I did say Newport Pagnell)

It may seem a strange location to go ghost hunting, a small market town on the outskirts of Milton Keynes. But, according to Julie Wison’s book ‘Haunted Places in Newport Pagnell’, it is Britain’s Ghostliest Town! The day got off to a promising start. It was foggy and eerie. However, by the time me and my fellow ghost hunter met up, it was unnaturally sunny (spooky). We decided to start by the church and the Three Arches. It is said that bodies used to be laid out under the far right arch, hence the picture.

Unfortunately, it was not the dead of night, so mournful sounds could be heard and the infamous grey lady was not in evidence. Unperturbed, we headed across the field by the river, where it is rumoured that a pair of spirit swans swim there in the winter.

Apparently they were star crossed lovers who died horrible deaths. We did see a swan, and a couple of ducks, oh and also a moor hen. We decided that we might have more success at the pub, the Kings Arms.
It is here a monk has been seen. I took a photo inside the pub, in the hope that a ghostly apparition might transpire, but unfortunately to no avail. I would say that the locals in the pub were pretty scary and didn’t seem to like strangers very much.
One building that did draw our attention, was a rather rickety looking place. We assumes some elderly witch must live here. However, on closer inspection, it was the back of an MOT servicing centre.
Our next stop was Tickford Abbey. This is now an old people’s home. The infamous grey lady is rumoured to frequent here too, but again she did not seem in evidence; in the grounds any way. We decided to find the plague fields, called Bury Field. It was here that we were handsomely rewarded. The field is a vast expanse of fields heading off into the distance. You can see for miles. It is totally beautiful and I am sure at night, extremely scary. We could see a large bird of prey circling overhead. Of all the places we visited, I think it was this one that inspired us to decide to revisit Newport Pagnell at night for our Ghost Hunting. That, and the fact that we went looking for the haunted telephone exchange and couldn’t find it. (spooky)
