Thanks, Mike, apparently Langley Priory was built from ruined material from the Castle at Castle Donington, which was meant to be haunted. Also, there is a lane heading north out of Osgathorpe called Breedon Lane, it has quite a reputation, several agricultural salesmen visiting a certain farm along that road have been scared witless by an entity, some have refused to go back!http://michaelandmaryline.blogspot.com/
Just had a dowse about Merlin and the farm at the end of the lane on the south side of the Breedon Lane is interesting, very close to where Top Brand runs.I dowse no evil but its had in its past Black Water lines running through the farm, they cannot harm/influence now, but when they were active and strong I imagine could have allowed past historic things to repeat, actions of the past to appear/form long enough to scare townies not used to country things. These forces like Ley Lines carry a scene from the past that was observed at the time, a hanging or a robbery, a rider on horse going fast that struck fear in the heart of those who saw this unfold.The imagine is repeated, ghost dogs hunting game, someone running for their life, a murder perhaps or violence seen through a childs eyes.
Old buildings often carry the history of the past within them,and Ancient Sites sometimes have past scenes of Roman troops walking past, or Monks at old buildings long gone....Its said people who have transplants sometimes adopt the likes and dislikes of the organ donor, and do things they have never done before the transplant.
