  1. My sister is adamant that she saw a lady with auburn hair and a Victorian-style dress with a colour to compliment the hair lying in dead leaves near a path, when the family took her there as a young child.

    She thought that the woman was resting, perhaps daydreaming, until we passed her and she saw a straight cut across her throat. She didn’t mention it at the time, but she has always insisted that she doesn’t like the place and would rather not go back.

    She is not the sort of person that would usually make things like this up.

    Has anyone else ever seen this ghost?

  2. its a nice place where you can have a nice day and chill. There are ice creams and wonderful grass fields. I go there often, hardly haunted.

  3. I often visit Ashton court for a nice stroll through the park.
    One day me and my partner stumbled across the little Ice house. Being somewhat interested in old architecture and history, I naturally peeked inside.
    The entire thing was pitch black, clearly abandoned, with rubbish everywhere on the floor.
    Suddenly, I see a big black figure move inside. I freaked out, my partner doesn’t believe me to this day, but I know I saw something move in there.
    I can’t quite describe it, as it was dark inside, but at first glance the place was empty, then suddenly I saw this big, vaguely animal shaped, completely black figure move towards the bars.
    I haven’t been to that specific place since, but just thinking about it creeps me out.
