We moved on to the Prince Rupert Hotel. The hotel dates back century's. Staff tell of ghostly goings on. Guests have claimed to see the figure of an old man looking lost in the hall way holding a candle he wanders along before disappearing through the wall. One guest spent the night in the bar after seeing the figure refusing to go back to his room. Another story tell the tale of a groom jilted at the alter by his bride, he is said to roam the rooms looking for his bride.
The council house a very old black and white building was was own by a lady from the Netherlands her parents fell ill back over seas. The Lady's sister in law came to look after here children and the dog whilst she went abroad. On her return the sister in law said to the lady why didn't you tell me about the other. What do you mean said the lady. The cavalier soldier that walks the top floor she said. Oh him he is just one of the family. She went on to say when we first moved in I just told him we will just have to share this house and that's what we do. No and then she said I just go up and talk to him. Strange but true.
