STRATFORD UPON AVON
Few buildings have had as turbulent a history as No.40 Sheep
Street in Stratford Upon Avon, now known as The Falstaff Experience.
There have been numerous sightings of ghostly figures and some of the
most physical activity we have ever encountered has been experienced at
this truly frightening and oppressive location. We defy anybody to walk
through its rooms alone without the feeling that you are being watched
There has been a property on this site since 1146 and the building has been known as The Shrieve's House for the last 500 years, in honour of its first recorded tenant, an Archer to King Henry VIII. The building has borne witness to Plague, Fire, Civil War and murder and William Shakespeare is documented to have walked the ancient cobblestones that lead to the massive barn at the rear of the house. Civil War troops were billeted here in the 17th Century and a local Serial Killer is said to have committed his foul deeds within the building during its time as a brothel and tavern. There are also strong links to Witchcraft here and one area outside the barn is still used by practicing Witches to this day.
It is little wonder that there is so much reported activity within this building, as it sits upon no fewer than 5 Ley Lines. There are also reported to be several Vortexes on the upper floors, through which non-grounded spirits can enter and leave again, making it a real hot-spot for paranormal activity.
There are several known spirits and ghosts that haunt The Falstaff Experience, including a young pickpocket who will often try to remove people's jewellery, a corrupt Justice of the Peace who used to extort money from the locals and even a dark, hooded figure with red eyes who is often seen around the same time of the year, just standing and observing. Most frightening of all is the 17th Century serial killer who regularly makes his presence felt by physically interacting with people in the group. Heavy footsteps, whispering voices and dragging sounds have all been heard during vigils here and some have been so badly affected that they have been unable to return to the upper floors.
