    They are missing our local melonheads. We used to go driving down Gravity Hill once a month or so to look for them. Never had a sighting myself though.

    To keep up with the spirit of Halloween.

    Has anyone here ever seen a ghost?

    I am not the type to believe in that stuff. I am a atheist/agnostic/confused leaning towards science as the only answers but I know enough to know that I know nothing. Anyway one day I was walking from my bedroom toward the kitchen and out of the corner of my eye I saw a whitish, luminous, slightly transparent, flowing object a foot above my daughters bed. I did a double take but there was nothing there.

    My daughter was only 3 at the time. I picked her up and kept her on my lap in the living room till I got sleepy, then had her sleep in my room with me,,,,, scary!

    I'm moving to Savannah in a month or two; it's supposed to be the 2nd-most haunted city in the U.S. I'll keep y'all informed...

    This is my only experience and actually a friendly ghost story.....

    When I was around 4 years old I remember waking up in the middle of the night. From my bed I looked down the hallway and saw a light in the living room. It got brighter until I actually saw a person in all white come up the hallway towards my room. I do not recall seeing an feet or even seeing a walking motion. At the last minute it turned and went into my parents room which turned really bright for about 30-60 seconds and then went dark. During this whole time I was never scared in the least and must have fallen asleep just afterwards because the next thing I remember is my mom waking me up in the morning and telling my mom what happened.

    Years later as an adult my mom asked me if I remember seeing what I told her about that next morning. I said yes. She then said that that night she woke up and saw a person standing over her, looking down at her laying in bed. She said she was not alarmed or scared at all. He had a kind face. The person told her something she needed to know at that time and disappeared.

    The next thing she remembers is waking up the following morning and pondering about what happened the previous night and even wondering if it was really real or just a dream. When she came to wake me up, I volunteered my experiences of the night before as she never did mention anything to me until I was about 22 years old.

    Ghost or angel, it made a positive difference.

    I love the supernatural. I kind if saw one once. I definitely believe there are other entities around us that we cannot see. So what if science can't prove it. I live in Los Angeles & the Queen Mary is supposed to be one of the most haunted places in the world. If any of you are in LA, check it out. The TV show Most Haunted is awesome too!

    A four year old is asleep in bed when he half wakes up from the sound of his dad flushing the toilet down the corridor. Still half asleep, he sees his dad walking through the corridor and disappearing into the parents room, where his father accidentally switches on the light. The mother turns in her sleep, wakes up for a few seconds and looks at her husband standing beside the bed who says "Sorry darling, I accidentally switched on the light". The mother returns to her dreams and would have forgotten about the funny dream the next day, if her son had not told her his dream, or his interpretation of what he had seen half asleep.

    Simple and straightforward - but I guess you prefer the more complicated, adventurous and mysterious explanation of the events.

    As always....it is a believe it or not event, which we know from our always interesting and entertaining discussions in the past that you do not believe in anything beyond this life.....but it was such a striking event beyond my dad flushing the toilet, that it is my first vivid memory of my life.....which I feel is significant since my Mom never said anything or made any big deal about it for 20 years.

    But then again, if my Mom and I had the same dream on the same night and both remembered it 20 years later without really talking about it at the time at all...that would be an extraordinary event in itself.

    Anyone else know of any ghost stories from your local area?

    Not strictly a ghost story but one of the most famous legends from my area, if you have read much Alan Garner you will recognise this story, he's from my area too:

    Once upon a time a farmer was travelling from Mobberley to Macclesfield market to sell a horse. He was hopeful of getting a good price for the horse, because it was the finest he had seen - pure milk white in colour and a beauty. As he was crossing the sandstone cliff called Alderley Edge he was surprised to see an old man with a long white beard and strange clothes.


    The old man greeted him and asked to buy the horse. The farmer refused thinking he might get more money at the market. The old man smiled and said, "Do as you please. Go to Macclesfield, but you won't sell the horse and this evening you will sell the horse to me."

    The farmer laughed and went on his way. At the market the horse was much admired, but no one would buy the fine creature. The farmer had to turn around and go home with the horse. As he was returning over the Edge, suddenly the old man appeared. "Follow me," said the old man and led the farmer to a great rock.


    Just as the farmer was wondering where he was being taken, the old man touched the rock with his staff and two large iron gates appeared. With a loud crash the gates opened, the horse reared at the sound and sent the farmer tumbling on to the ground. "Don't be afraid," said the old man and led the farmer and horse into the cave beyond the gates.

    Inside the cave, the farmer looked from side to side. All around lay sleeping knights and their horses. All the horses were milk white. On and on the old man led the farmer through countless caverns all filled with sleeping men and horses - a huge army sleeping and waiting to rise. In the innermost cave the old man stopped and pointed at a huge pile of gold and jewels, telling the farmer to take his payment for the horse. The old man explained that one day when England was in great danger the army would wake and ride out onto the Cheshire plain to save the country. One soldier didn't have a horse, which is why the old man wanted the farmer's.

    The farmer grabbed some gold, stuffed it into his pocket and staggered out of the cave. The great doors clanged behind him. The farmer ran on. When he had gone a little distance he turned around, but all he saw was the rock. No one has found the door since.

    On Alderley Edge you can see the Wizard's Well and on it you can read these words:

    Drink of this and take thy fill,
    For the water falls by the wizard's will.

    Is it the same wizard, who met with the farmer? What is his name? And what is the name of the leader of the army who sleeps under the hill, waiting for the time when England needs him? The local people think they know the answer - they think the wizard is Merlin and the sleeping king is Arthur. The legend has it that King Arthur and the knights of the Round Table will one day return in England's hour of greatest need.

    One of the nicest pub/restaurants on the Edge is called The Wizard.
