Your Daily Ghost Story #070 • Ghostly Doggos Interact With Living Doggos (Sutton House)

Built in 1535, Sutton House has seen a variety of uses before its timely refurbishment in the 1990s. But before the Spice Girls hit the scene, and before bowl hats were ok to wear in public, it was the home to merchants, clergymen - and was even a schoolhouse!

However, its past residents are still active even now. With the Most Haunted team making an appearance in 2007, there’s an array of human and animal hauntings often detected.

Maybe you’ll see a woman in a blue dress hover over you when you wake from a nightmare, the ghost of a woman believed to have died in childbirth. Or perhaps you’ll hear the wail of John Machell’s dogs as they howl at the bright moon in the dead of the night.

Sure, they might have lived in the 16th century, but a doggo gotta doggo.

Speaking of puppers, even living dogs have weird reactions to the house, often becoming transfixed by the stairs and someone who may or not be walking down them…

Your Daily Ghost Story #068 • Mary Queen Of Scots Walks To Her Execution (Fotheringhay Castle)

Mary Queen of Scots’ life ended as many of her ancestors did - at the executioner’s hand. But its not just her death which she has in common with so many other British monarchs: its her afterlife, too.

After her death, the castle she called home was essentially dismembered and sent round the country. But even though the great oak staircase ended up 4 miles away in another location, it is said she still walks down them towards her execution.

Fun fact: when the guy cut her head off, he held it up by her hair to prove her death, only for her wig to be pulled off and her head drop to the floor.
