Time to get creative, people. :) It's Traveling Tuesday. Picture prompts for #writers. Today, we'll also have a picture prompt for all of you wonderful #readers.
Make sure you're firmly planted in your chair, because today we are getting spooky with three of the most haunted places in England. There are many more, but I don't want to creep you out too much. I usually stay away from things that are scary and or creepy, but I thought it might come in handy for those of you than enjoy writing #paranormal, horror and possibly, #scifi.
Borley Rectory, Essex
Borley Rectory was a Victorian mansion in the pretty village of Borley, Essex. It was destroyed by fire in 1939, but gained a reputation as being heavily haunted after a series of locals reported some unexplained paranormal goings-on. In fact, the hauntings at Borley caught the nation’s attention when the story of Borley was covered in the Daily Mirror and by noted paranormal investigator Harry Price. The first indication that there was something paranormal happening at the house were footsteps heard in the dead of the night in the 1860s. The ghost of a nun, two headless horsemen, a phantom carriage, the phantom ringing of the servant’s bells and bottle-throwing are just some of the paranormal incidents reported at Borley.

Ancient Ram Inn, Gloucestershire
The Ancient Ram Inn has often been referred to as the most haunted house in Britain. The house itself is said to have been the location of many sinister happenings, including child sacrifice, suicide, black magic rituals and was also used as a hideout by criminals. The current owner, John Humphries believes that he shares his home with all sorts of spooks – two demons, a witch, orbs and other ghostly presences, and many people who have visited the property have described it as the ‘scariest place’ they’ve ever been to.

Pendle Hill, Lancashire
Pendle Hill is located in an area known as Pendleside. It’s famous for its links to George Fox, which led to the foundation of the Quaker movement. A Bronze Age burial site was also discovered at the foot of the hill and it was also home to the Pendle witches, prompting many people to visit the site in search of ghosts and spirits. Most Haunted visited the site in 2004 for a live episode and the presenter, Yvette Fielding, maintains that that episode was the scariest episode of Most Haunted that they have ever filmed.
