It is that time of year so in keeping with the season allow me a tale or two.
It is told that on a little hill just out side Watchet and old house stood. It is said that many of the family
are buried in the old church yard and their, many of their monuments still stand today .It has been said that for years and still possibly today that her ghost haunts the old manor.
A strange ghost story indeed It is said that the Lady of the manor was strangely taken ill one fall day and rapidly grew worse and finally dieing and her body was to be buried in the family vault.
Now the old care taker noticed that her fingers bore many a valuable rings and around her neck was a diamond as such he had never seen, and it was then and their that the old care taker had made up his mind to remove these as he figured the body snatchers , who at that time plundered the corpses of the dead and the corpse was sold to the local hospitals . So waiting until dark he decided to make his move , he entered the vault and began to pry open the coffin, and began to remove the Lady's rings, but in doing so one of them cut his finger , but at the same time he saw that their was blood coming from the corpse as well for it spurted out all over himself as well as the corpse, but as he worked trying to get the remainder of the stones , the body twitched and began to move , suddenly it raised from the coffin , over turned and began to walk from the vault back to the place that she called home . For days the old cares mind was unbalanced and the hauntings when round and round in his head , it is said that he went back to the vault and their saw many of the other lids of the coffins fly open and the figure of the Lady stood before his , he was so terrified he flung himself to his death .
