Do you believe in Ghoulies and Ghosties?

During the day, I don’t believe in ghosts.  At night, I am a little more open-minded.

I have just read an article in today’s Lincolnshire Echo which reports that things have been going bump in the night at The Robin Hood pub in Boston.

The pub in question has been around for a very long time and old buildings do have a reputation of producing ghostly phenomena, in this case …

 ‘A tall, mysterious man with a hat kept being seen by regulars – and great, shuddering noises were heard from behind the walls’.

Canines are very sensitive to any paranormal shenanigans.  As a child, we lived in a house that dated back to the Doomsday Book and there was one particular part of that house where all our dogs refused to go.


At the Robin Hood pub there was one particular encounter reported by a friend of  landlord’s who, at the time, was dismissive and sceptical of ghoulies and ghosties.   The dog was ‘going ballistic and its fur standing up on end’.  The friend and unquestionably the dog, saw a figure.  A tall man in a long trench coat, with a hat.

Do you see it?
This is not the Robin Hood ‘Man with the hat’ but do you see it?

So who ya gonna call?  Well, not Ghost Busters in this instance, but Paranormal 3.  The investigation team was made up of Tina Woodcock, Neil Wells, Darren Gunson and medium Anthony Coffey.

The team have thoroughly investigated the weird goings on at the Robin Hood pub and their findings have been recorded for posterity.   And indeed things were going bump in the night, as well as incidents like Tina feeling ‘a cold presence’ in front of her and that she could ‘feel him breathing on her face’.

References were made to the dominant spirit of a man with an injury to the left hand side of his face.

Anthony Coffey stated that ‘spirits exist all around us, but as we are on a different frequency to them, they cannot always be seen’.  So, maybe dogs are on the same frequency?

Whether or not you believe in ghosts, there is definitely food for thought.
