The Old Rectory in Lincolnshire was built in 1709 and is
famous for being the birthplace of John and Charles Wesley, perhaps two of
Britain's most famous clergymen.
The haunting of this place began in 1716, when John
Wesley was still living there. Strange noises were heard all over the house
and doors and windows opened and closed of their own accord. A corn mill was
seen turning on its own and from then on, two months of poltergeist activity
invaded the house. Footsteps on the stairs were heard as well as raps
and knocks in the hall and kitchen.
