Borley Rectory was a house that gained infamy as “the most haunted house in England” after being described as such by psychic researcher Harry Price. Built in 1862 to house the rector of the parish of Borley and his family, it was badly damaged by fire in 1939 and demolished in 1944.
The large Gothic-style rectory in the village of Borley had been alleged to be haunted ever since it was built. These reports multiplied suddenly in 1929, after the Daily Mirror published an account of a visit by paranormal researcher Harry Price, who wrote two books supporting claims of paranormal activity.
The church and rectory both have a history of paranormal activity., including phantom organ music, ghostly chanting, and the ghost of a nun moving about the churchyard. Tales from the church and the rectory are frequently connected to a supposed Benedictine monastery in the area.
Paranormal investigators Ed & Lorraine Warren documented their experience at Borley with clear photo evidence. Ed was able to capture the photo of the ghost of a monk, leafing though a book in the church.While Lorraine experienced a black mass moving past her with an undeniable evil energy. The photos revealed a nun in their presence.
