The Waun Llwyd Haunting
the 1930's, one of the Waun Llwyd Cottages, located on the isolated moutainside above the village of waun Llwyd, was home
to a normal family... and a ghost. A "strange presence" that beared down upon family members in an upstairs bedroom was just
one of the frightening experiences reported. Bedclothes were also pulled by an unseen force. The family soon realised that
they could not share their home with this presence, and duly moved out.

Haunted Underwear Factory
Berlei Underwear Factory is home to a friendly ghost, that has even been given the nickname of 'Charlie'. According to employees,
lights switch themselves off, and at Christmas the decorations are taken down! The ghost has apparently been seen next to
one of the sewing machines. Could this be the ghost of a workhouse inmate that hanged himself when the factory site was once
an old workhouse?

The Mill-stream and Churchyard
apparition of a young woman carrying her baby has been seen in the area of the mill-stream and churchyard. She has been described
as a "white misty form... walking steadily along the path by the stream". According to accounts, the form disappears where
the stream takes a bend near to a bridge. The ghost has also been spotted on the other side of the bridge, walking through
the closed church gates.
