Old buildings often have rich, sometimes tormented, history. Maybe that's why these places are sometimes haunted. A presbytery, located not far from Leicester (in England), would thus be inhabited by a mysterious ghost.
In the small village of Walton-Le-Wolds, there is a large rectory with 30 rooms. According to Reverend Thomas R. Williams, a strange "black shadow" lurks in the halls of this building. Many witnesses would have seen him. It is said that when this ghost walks through a room, the air cools dramatically.
No one knows the identity of this spirit. The Reverend says he is in no way malicious. He explains that during his life he had already been called upon to cast out spirits using his holy water.
However, the clergyman explains that he did not see this ghost with his own eyes. “Perhaps it's be cause I do not wholly believe in ghosts,” he concludes.
