Haunted treasures

Yesterday we went to one of favourite haunts... Bygone times which is a junk come antique place which is housed in an old mill and has a really interesting history It is believe to be haunted by 10 ghosts, and what a wonderful atmosphere  it has. There is a cobbled victoria alley, a penny arcade, ghost trail , cafe, WW11 exhibtion, they even run ghost hunt nights. In fact some of the history of the old Grove Mill is at present being investigated by "Mark Olley" from the historical program lost treasures. (more to follow on this as some point)

Well we arrived at lunch time, had lunch and the staff let us in round the back of the building to the basement as the stairs to it are very steep and too many to do I found three wonderful pieces green glass in the basement I just had to have:) yummy I also found some wonderful wool the type you make scarfs with 12 balls for £5 bargain so I am well stocked with scarf wool.

Next time we go we do a different section of the place, its wonderful as there are so many memories of things we used to use and things you may never have seen ,,,also loads of chairs to sit on as you go round which makes looking possible, also the staff are amazing there and willing to help .
