When it comes to ghostly encounters, I’m an absolute sceptic. I sit on a fence of believing and liking a good ghost story, and keeping a scientific mind of ‘there must be another provable explanation‘.
It doesn’t take away the fact that I experienced an encounter which I still can’t explain to this day.
My experience was at the George Inn at Norton St Philip, just on the border of Wiltshire. Sat with a group of friends, near a roaring fire during winter, the evening was cosy and fun. That was until the temperature dropped and I felt the firm palm of a hand rest on the crown of my head. I quickly turned to see who it was but no one was there. That is it. Something I can’t explain, but it still crosses my mind whether I was being blessed or cursed!
Ask many Wiltshire people who have visited old monuments, buildings, pubs, dark paths, or simply live in older houses and most will have a story of some kind that cannot be explained.
