Ghosts Aren’t Just For Houses:Top 5 Most Haunted Roads

 

Apparently some ghosts have taken their shows to the road… and this list will tell you just which roads to avoid if you don’t want to hear anything go bump in the night on your next drive.

haunted tunnel

First up, Belchen Tunnel, Switzerland. It looks creepy enough, doesn’t it? It gets better… or worse. Apparently, this Swiss road is haunted by an old lady. One report shows that two women actually claimed to pick the old lady up, and were told by the old lady that “something dreadful was going to happen.” Then, with her message apparently delivered, she disappeared.

Not scary enough? Let’s try Stocksbridge Road, also known as the “Killer Road.” Located in the United Kingdom, there have been numerous ghost sightings reported… and of more than one ghost, as well. There’s the ghost of a monk who likes to show up on the bridge on Stocksbridge Road. And then there are the ghost children (aren’t those always the scariest?). Some of the sightings of these ghost children actually come from security guards, who said they saw children playing on the road late one night… but the kids disappeared before the guards could reach them. Workmen often reported children singing in the night, as well.

hwy 666

 

But let’s bring it a little closer to home with Highway 666 in the United States. Here there have been reports of speeding ghost cars — including a flaming, demonic semi-truck that reportedly seems to drive directly at spooked travelers — as well as packs of devil dogs. Also, people tend to disappear from this stretch of road, losing their sense of time and sometimes not being found until days later. The name was changed from Highway 666 to 491, and, strangely enough, accidents did decrease… but it is still known as America’s “Highway to H*ll.”

Then there is Tuen Mun Road, located in Hong Kong. There is a disproportionately high number of car accidents on this road, and people there blame the local ghosts. Apparently, these ghosts will appear suddenly, right in front of a driver, forcing the driver to swerve and inevitably crash. Furthermore, just to guarantee there is never a shortage, they say that each new car accident fatality results in a new ghost haunting the road.

old boy bridge

But if you are looking for a little more personal interaction from your ghostly encounters, try Clinton Road, in New Jersey, at the Old Boy Bridge. If you toss in a coin, the ghost of a boy who drowned there will toss it back up to you. And if that isn’t creepy enough, there have also been sightings of UFOs, mutated circus animals, and mysterious glowing eyes.

Kuhn Memorial State Hospital in Vicksburg is known to be one of the most haunted hospitals in the south.

The dust on the table reads, “pleh,” or “help” backwards. Nobody on the paranormal investigation team knew how it had gotten there….

Oh, and by the way… ghosts are said to write backwards.

New Poll: Zombies, Yes or No?

Or, I Need Your Opinion

After the Dark Caster series ends in Spring ’15, I’ll be writing a new paranormal romance series. If you know me, you know I love zombies. I’m kicking around an idea to include zombies as the villains’ mindless attack dogs.

What do you think? Do you enjoy zombies in your paranormal series?

Thanks!

Newcastle’s 5 Most Haunted Spots

Or, Take A Virtual Tour Of Haunted Sites

Jump to the original article here. Read the full story below.

Ghosts and Hauntings in Newcastle and the Hunter Valley

HAUNTED: The Civic Theater, Hunter Street

The Civic Theatre is said to be haunted by ghosts, and the best known ghost is Joe.

Joe once, apparently, had a long conversation with former Newcastle deputy lord mayor Frank Rigby.

The Civic Theatre stalls.

The story goes, Mr Rigby was sitting alone in the theatre stalls one evening pondering the shortfall of funds required to renovate the rundown theatre.

That’s when Joe seated himself down next to Mr Rigby and insisted on talking.

Mr Rigby told Joe that there was not enough money in the budget to cover the cost of refurbishing the orchestra pit.

The ghost turned, smiled and told him not to worry about it and that everything would turn out alright.

Not long after, Newcastle was struck by an earthquake. Miraculously the Civic Theatre was spared its destruction, except for one place – the orchestra pit. Insurance covered the cost of its replacement with a new and better pit.

HAUNTED: Miss Porter’s House, King Street

Miss Porter’s House in King Street, Newcastle West, is a heritage listed building. Built in the early 1900s it was the home of the Porter family.

Sisters Ella and Hazel, both spinsters, lived in the house their entire lives.Many visitors to the house, which was bequeathed to the National Trust, claim to have seen the ghosts of the sisters.

It is said the sisters still reside over the home, which the longest surviving sister, Hazel, requested remain untouched after her death. Everything in the home is just as the sisters left it, complete with their clothes, furniture and even teaspoons.

Visitors have reported seeing apparitions of the sisters dressed in slippers and a skirt. There have also been claims the furniture moves around in the house, seemingly all by itself.

HAUNTED: The Old Hunter Street Police Lock-up

The old Newcastle Police Station in Hunter Street operated from 1861 until 1982. And those who believe in ghostly entities say its lock-up is haunted by many, but its best known is the spirit child named Mary.

Mary walks the jail looking for her parents and a Sydney based team of paranormal investigators claim to have made contact with her and have even recorded her voice.

But Mary is not the only ghost of the lock-up.

Paranormal investigators claim to have photographed what they believe is a ghost (pictured above), possibly a police officer, during one of their overnight camp-outs in the lock-up in 2012.

HAUNTED: Newcastle Court House, Church Street

Newcastle Court House is one of the most ghostly places in town.

There have been many ghost sightings in the Church St building. Jurors have reported feeling as though there were being watched from the upstairs public gallery during trials, claiming that even though they try to concentrate on the trial before them, their attention is repeatedly drawn to the fourth row of seats on the left hand side.

Jurors have also reported hearing the rattling of doors, cold spots throughout the building and the constant feeling of being watched.

One juror described a ghost in a pillbox hat and gloves sitting in the gallery with her hands folded in her lap.

HAUNTED: The Royal Newcastle Hospital, Pacific Street

The Royal Newcastle Hospital operated for almost 190 years. Built by convicts in 1817 it has a rich history of ghost sightings.

Some of the sightings were of the ghosts of patients who died in the hospital – including one woman who continued to set off the buzzer in her hospital room after her death.

Nurses have reported seeing bright lights shining above the beds of recently deceased patients, full bodied aparitions in ward hallways, ghostly workmen walking into lifts and the unsettling appearance of ghost nurses.

There is even a story of a matron who still came to work, years after her death.

New 5-Star Review of Spell of Vanishing

Or, An Enthusiastic Endorsement For The New Release In The Dark Caster Series

I feel so blessed to have the job I have. Thank you, RC!

SOV quote 1400x2100

SiMPLiREAD’s review of Spell of Vanishing:

Click here for the original post.

This book is brilliant! It is thoroughly gripping and keeps the reader on the edge of the seat. I enjoyed it, needless to say. The plot beautifully blends the paranormal world of the White Wraith, Dark Caster and Cole with the earthly world. It’s a pretty tough job to create a world of where such fantasies are abound.The book combines many genres at one go – drama, suspense, action and dark fantasy. The author is also an excellent story-teller, having conjoined the suspense and thrills in the lives of the protagonists with the ambience. The characters are perky, witty and mentally strong, all at once. If you love reading books that are fascinating and electrifying, with memorable characters, you would love this one as much as I did! 5 out of 5 stars. –RC Bean
