People have been hearing a young girl crying, coming from the attic of
old Stapeley house. My friends and I decided to go up there to see if we
could find any evidence of a ghost. We went up into the dark attic, and
up into the loft. Everything was dark, and my Dad wouldn't let us turn
on the torch, so we couldn't see anything. Ella and Jo (names changed)
went up onto the roof, and saw something engraved into the slates, 'I
WEEP' like the crying girl had written it. We went back into the main
part of the loft, and then decided to go up onto the roof on the other
side. We were chatting, and then my Dad told us to be quiet. I asked why
and he told us he had heard banging. We went silent, and heard it too.
It was a slow continuous banging, that wouldn't stop. We decided to get
the hell out of there. We went silently down the stairs, but the banging
continued, and we could also hear scraping coming from under the stairs,
under our feet. We were so scared, because we were the only ones in the
house. As soon as we got out of the door to the loft, the banging and
There is a room that is said to be the most haunted room in the house.
As we passed that room, we noticed something that we hadn't noticed when
we came up. The door frame to the haunted room looked like it had been
slashed at with a knife. Spooky... As we went downstairs, every door we
passed was open and they hadn't been before. People still hear the
weeping of the young girl...
