  1. In 1990 I moved into a new house on an estate called Brimsham Park in Yate. Within weeks strange phenomena started to make itself known. The first sighting was in broad daylight when my husband was watching TV – he saw a male figure walk from our airing cupboard through our closed bathroom door. It seemed to be the beginnings of things to come. Things would go missing – the heating or the oven would come on in the middle of the night and on occasion the keys we kept in our door that led to our balcony would swing violently from side to side. This escalated after the birth of my son. By the time he was 18 months old he was having regular visits from ‘The White Lady with no shoes’. At first I thought it was just the normal night terrors children have until one day when I asked him what she was like. He said she was cold. I asked how he knew and he told me that she picks him up and rocks him. One day while he was quietly playing in the living room he suddenly shot on to my lap screaming ‘take him away – take him away’. I consoled him as best I could and a few days later I quietly asked him what happened. These were his exact words ‘It doesn’t matter now, the man only came to play trains with me’.( he was barely 2 years old) Incidents like this continued over a six year period. We have now long gone from the area and live in Spain where the phenomena has continued over the years and at times become so profound I have been lost for words.
