Chester: England's Most Haunted City

'Charlie' and 'Herbert'

Ghostly monk, ChesterTwo ghostly monks have haunted part of Pepper Street, in central Chester, for many years.

Affectionately known to local people as 'Charlie' and 'Herbert', the spectral figures achieved notoriety, however, only in the 1960s. Today, however, they've not been seen for a while.

At that time a long-established garage occupied the site next to what is now a modern Habitat shop. When out-of-town competition increased, the owners decided to open the petrol station 24-hours-a-day. Strangely, however, none of the staff seemed keen to do the night shift.

The culprits turned out to be two black-cowled phantom monks who prowled up from the river each night to vanish in front of the petrol pumps. Staff turnover was swift until a young woman took over the job. She apparently viewed the ghostly visitors with blithe acceptance and would call out to them each night: 'Hello, Charlie! Hello, Herbert!'

For some people, the supernatural is a cause of fear, while for others it's merely part of 'life's rich tapestry'!
