National Trust releases top 10 haunted hotspots (UK)





Preferably headless, rattling chains optional, but soul wandering the earth for eternity essential: it is what those of a ghoulish persuasion may want to see this Hallowe'en week — a ghost.

To assist in this quest the National Trust has released a top 10 list of its most haunted historic properties.

In at number one is Blickling Hall, Norfolk, described by the National Trust as a "magnificent Jacobean house famed for its fine tapestries, rare books and reputedly the headless ghost of Anne Boleyn".

Henry VIII's second wife, beheaded in 1536, took Blickling to the top spot with the help of her "fellow residents": Sir John Fastolfe, the 15th century knight whose name was adapted for Shakespeare's comic character Falstaff, and Sir Henry Hobart, killed in a duel in 1698.
