Hello, Stephen here, with what I think may be my first truly paranormal experience in the house. I was working upstairs in the house this afternoon – exploring some of the rooms at the rear – when I could have sworn I heard footsteps in the hall downstairs. I immediately went to the head of the back stairs to start down to investigate and the immediate sense that was a presence in the hallway downstairs – there was a definite impression of movement – a shadow, I think, or some movement – but by the time I got downstairs the hallway was empty and the house quiet. I have often, over the last few days, had the impression that I was not alone in the house but had put this down to having been on my own for the past week, but perhaps I am not as alone as I thought. It’s certainly an intriguing event.
