One of my favourite photographers is Simon Marsden, to say his images are haunting is one of many things I would say. His absolutely stunning images inspire me to write and look at mysteries.

Netly Abbey is one such place.

A visit to Netly Abbey in Hampshire would not only be good if you like a wonderful sight but you might even come across reported ghosts from the place too.

A Cistercian monk is said to roam the area and a former abbot have had a sighting. A nearby derelict site also has also had it’s involvement with reports of faint chanting.

Legend has it that Walter Taylor was a contractor brought in to demolish the church, before he was due to start work he had a dream that he would be punished if he committed sacrilege by damaging it. During the demolishing work Walter was killed by falling debris.

Still not sated? Okay lets try another one! It’s also said that the Abbey once stored contraband and that a curse was laid down by a Guardian of the Treasure, Blind Peter. He has a curse for anyone that tries looking.

“This was once my home. I was a proud and loyal servant. Nobody but a ¬†member of our order will lay claim to the treasure that might be buried here. Since my death I have guarded this place but you will only see me on Halloween.”

Apparently the treasure it buried at the end of a long tunnel. Now apparently a warning tale comes with this, Slown is the man said to have tried to find it and he was frightened to death by what he found.

(I’m not sure how seriously a ghost would take threatening on Halloween, seems a bit fishy to me!)
