Wharfedale Rise, Tingley

Posted in >

A house tucked away in the corner of this unassuming, bungalow-lined, cul-de-sac was said to be haunted by the shade of a monk. The nearby Woodkirk Church was at one time a priory and presumably the monk was associated with this place. The inhabitants of the house would sometimes look up on an evening to see the monk walking silently across the corner of the room - embedded in the floor up to his knees. The spirit was accompanied by a feeling of pure happiness and filled all who saw him with a warm glow. 

When the layout of the house was changed - and a new interior porchway built in 'his' corner - he was never seen again, to the eternal regret of the owners.
