After Sunset

Ruins after Sunset W

Bordesley Abbey is reputed to be haunted by the ghost of the 10th Earl of Warwick, who died in 1315. The Earl was a benefactor of the abbey, in an age when the privileged few could commit all sorts of crimes, but have them forgiven by the simple method of donating large sums of money to an abbey or other church foundation, an arrangement that suited both parties.

Even though I have spent some time there after sunset, I have never seen anything remotely spooky. Just as well – because I don’t believe in ghosts anyway.
