Most haunted house in England up for sale

The whispers of children, strange apparitions, furniture moving on its own — for people who are thrilled by the paranormal, a property in England could become your personal haunted house.

Portsmouth City Council has put Wymering Manor on the auction block. Wymering Manor is touted as Britain’s most haunted property. The council is hoping to sell the property for $600,000.

‘This is a property of some renown for being haunted, so there is a fair chance a future owner may use it as a guest house because of the novelty factor attached to it," surveyor Jeremy Lamb told the U.K.’s Daily Mail newspaper.

The building belonged to King Edward the Confessor in 1042, and to King William the Conqueror after the Battle of Hastings in 1066 until 1084. It is listed in the Domesday Book — a survey of properties and information from 1086.

The website says Wymering Manor is "not for the faint hearted" as there have been a number of reports of paranormal experiences in the old building.

The website says there have been sightings of a man hanging from a tree in the yard, a woman dressed in violet dress standing at the end of a bed, a man known as Reckless Roddy who was killed in the laneway, and the ghost of a nun with her hands dripping blood.

The house has also been featured on the British paranormal documentary reality television show, Most Haunted.
