James Street, Penygarn
In the mid 1980's, the occupier of a council house in James Street reported unexplained noises, doors and windows
rattling, icey-cold sensations, crockery smashing and a shadowy figure was allegedly seen. The owners' dogs
would not settle in the house.
St Albans School
The school is said to be haunted by the ghost of a nun, who walks the main stairs and has been witnessed by a teacher.
The building was aquired by nuns in its early history, and it appears one of them wants to stay around!
The New Inn Public House
Unexplained noises, strange smells, doors shutting themselves, footsteps and slaps to the face of one unfortunate
individual were the phenomena once reported here.
It is said that the face to face encounter with the White Spirit on Varteg Fawr, will be the last thing you will ever
see! Varteg Fawr is located on the highest hillside above Pontypool, and is a very desolate spot. So, how do people
know if others have seen it, because if they have seen it, they should have died?
