Seven places to spot ghosts in June – Plymouth Live

Traditionally, June is a month of glorious sunshine as summer finally arrives..

But while some people may be hoping for a warm weekend away this month, others are going ghosthunting.

If you’re into the paranormal, then June is a good month to head out on an adventure.

According to ParanormalDatabase.con, spooky spectres can be ‘creatures of habit’, and often ghosts will return to places important to them each year.

With that in mind, here’s a list of ‘reoccurring supernatural events’ that reportedly take place across the UK in June.

Time Line

Ghosts of June


  1. Woman’s Singing, Hickling (Norfolk), June 1



    Once a year, a gentle female voice can be heard singing. Reportedly the Woman in White, she can be seen punting from one side of the broad to another, heading towards a mill.

    Another ghost is associated with the broad; a drummer is said to be a Napoleonic soldier who drowned while skating across the ice, en route for a secret rendezvous with his girlfriend, can sometimes be heard.


  2. Battle replayed, Naseby (Northamptonshire), June 14



    Reported less frequently now, but for 100 years locals would sit on the nearby hills and watch the decisive Civil War battle occur once again, complete with the sounds of men screaming and cannons firing.

    A photograph taken by the Northampton Paranormal Group on this date in 2008 may show a phantom soldier, although nothing was seen when the image was taken.


  3. King Arthur, Cadbury (Somerset), June 20

    Escorted by mounted knights carrying lances, King Arthur of the Britons traverses this route back to Camelot (as Cadbury is thought to be) on this day.

    One witness said that in 1995 they encountered an armoured man (more dark age than medieval) holding a standard on horseback – the figure disappeared around a corner, though there was no place that he could have gone.

    One legend says a door opens every seven years in the hillside so Arthur and his company can leave to feed their horses.


  4. Swimming Horseman, Ashford (Kent), June 20



    Riding towards the park house, this phantom horseman veers off at the last minute and enters the nearby lake.

    A white lady haunts the house itself, seen by porters on the night shift. In the 17th Century, the Earl of Winchelsea cut down several oak trees, bestowing a curse on his family which took the life of his wife and son shortly after.


  5. Witch Haven, Trewa (Cornwall), June 23



    Robert Hunt wrote that once a year the entire local witch population would meet in the town and travel around the surrounding area to light fires on all monoliths and standing stones in the area. However, the ‘town’ does not appear to exist on modern maps.


  6. Mayfly, Oulton (Norfolk), June 24-25



    The ghostly barge Mayfly relives its final voyage. With the captain of the boat on deck, chasing and murdering a young woman, the boat has been seen with its sails bellowing on calm nights.

    The captain of the boat was escorting a large sum of money and a woman down the river when he decided to steal the cargo and murder the witness. The woman and Captain killed each other in the fight, and now the boat haunts the waters.


  7. Four Royals, Windsor Castle (Berkshire), June 26



    Henry VIII, Queen Elizabeth, Charles I & George III have all reportedly been seen here after their natural lives ended. Elizabeth frequents the library, Charles the Canon’s House (traditionally walking on the night of June 26), while George haunts the rooms in which he was bound after being declared mad.

    Henry can only be heard, moving slowly down the corridors, dragging his bad leg. The great park attached to the castle is home to Herne the Hunter, who together with his devil dogs, stalk the woodlands.
