Description

Guy's Cliffe House

The ruins of Guy's Cliffe House is supposed to be one of the most haunted, Guy of Warwick's ghost-a tall figure with full beard-is said to roam the corridors and grounds around the house, Phantom footsteps have also been known to follow visitors in the wine cellar, and a young girl crying has been heard, add to that the apparition of a hand has been seen pressed against a wall. In 1992, during the filming of an episode of Sherlock Holmes, a pyrotechnical stunt went wrong and the property nearly burned down to the ground. It is only open to the public 1 day a year and is now owned by and used as a Masonic Lodge.

Wow, thanks for the history, Karen. It's a great shot. I wonder what Guy thinks of the little palm tree. :-)
