Chester: England's Most Haunted City

Haunted Hermit's Cell

Evil poltergeist, ChesterOn a sandstone knoll overlooking Chester's river Dee close to the city walls is the curious Anchorite's Cell. Originally occupied by a hermit monk, the unique medieval cell is home to a powerful, mischievous spirit that springs to life at Halloween.

Legend says the cell was the final home of the Saxon King Harold after he escaped alive from the battle of Hastings. Other famous residents include the 12th-century Holy Roman Emperor, Henry Godscallus. During its long history, the cell has also been a grain warehouse, the meeting place of the Company of Shoemakers and, more recently in the 1970s, an architect's office.

Now converted into a cosy, centrally heated, two bedroomed house, the cell nonetheless seems to have a rapid turnover of owners. Local rumour suggests recent occupiers left soon after a terrifying experience one night when a heavy oak door was inexplicably ripped from its hinges in front of their eyes.
