In Bordeaux, France is a scenic place in Haux that dates back to the 15th Century, it was used for vineyards to produce Semillion and Sauvignon Blanc. In 2003 the Chateaux was brought by the Holmes family and it is now being run as a hotel.

La Gorce has a reputation for being haunted, escalated no doubt thanks to Ghost Hunters International, due to it being cursed when the German’s seized it during World War II. They made it into a Nazi post.

Voices screaming things such as ‘fight’ have been heard by guests, other reports have come in about apparitions of soldiers, little girls and shadows in the hallways.

Whilst investigating Ghost Hunters International found problems with otherwise usually good equipment, EVP’s from the TV team and others also caught voices with things such as ‘This is mine’ and ‘get out’, some also believe that they have heard the name Pierre.

Another report says that a force pinned a woman to her bed one night, this has apparently been an experience for more than one guest. Have you been there and experienced anything?

A major highway/express-way in Hong Kong that was built in 1977, the early design and heavy usage mean regular traffic jams and road accidents. This has led to it being known as a haunted road.

In July 2003 a lorry and bus collided, the bus broke through the barriers and dropped 115 feet into the Ting Kau village below. 21 deaths, including the driver, and 20 injured were the results of the accident. The lorry driver was convicted for causing death by dangerous driving which after an appeal was reduced and became careless driving.

This is only one of the history of fatalities but it is by far the worst, drivers down the road began to tell of people who had appeared causing them to serve and it has been accounted for pile-ups and crashes there regularly enough that it has given way to the haunted reputation. Now regular travellers and witnesses say they simply drive through them.

Whether or not this is true or urban legends developing from the tragedies, it’s certainly a road that you will need to take caution with if you are heading along that way.

Wales in New York, an old inactive village lot which has the original settlers of Wales and the surrounding areas buried within the Goodleburg Cemetery. It was a relatively peaceful place to visit until the 1990’s when rumours started up about ghosts and sightings of apparitions. It sparked interest with enthusiasts who were intent on capturing evidence of the Paranormal.

21st June 2003, 11:15PM saw the death of a member of the Western York team, Paranormal Ghost Society when they were struck by an oncoming car. The cause was listed as DUI but partial blame has been laid on the group for being on the road late at night when there are many known blind curves.

Thanks to vandalism there is a harsh restriction on visitors that they can only go from 8am to Dusk. Anyone outside of those hours caught on the grounds will be prosecuted due to the history of vandalism. Also if you want to head that way prepare for a walk, there is no parking within half a mile.

The folklore/urban legend attached to the cemetery is that a man named Dr Goodleberg had been performing illegal abortions behind his home, on a small hill overlooking the cemetery. Any of the aborted foetus or any one that did not survive the abortion procedure was then buried in the cemetery.
