A Homewood Park Horror Story

Over the hills, but not so far away…

As Halloween approaches, we cannot help but begin to sense those unavoidable waves of spine tingling torment as the famous night of the unknown dawns upon us. While Homewood Park is known for being a ‘safe haven’ for those wanting a relaxing break, All Hallows’ Eve can be enough to turn even the sweetest of spa breaks into a holistic horror story. But why may you ask? Here are a few teeth chattering, tummy trembling tales from the local area to know about before you arrive…

Burning Hills

Several witnesses in Warminster have reported seeing large burning fires on the hills, with figures dancing around them, talking and singing loudly in an unrecognised language. However, whenever those investigating have drawn nearer to the site of the commotion, there is never any evidence of the fire or figures…

The Fallen Woman

Again in Warminster, a lady ghost is purported to haunt the theatre. It is said that footsteps can be heard in empty parts of the building and the smell of perfume wafts through the air. The woman is thought to have died after being pushed from the top of a staircase when the building was a reading room in the eighteenth or nineteenth century.

Screaming in the Tunnel

Four workmen working in Box Tunnel, near Corsham, all heard the moaning of a woman’s voice at the mouth of the tunnel. The wailing grew louder and louder and the men thought someone was playing a practical joke, until one of them shone his torch up the hill and the party saw a dishevelled woman in a nightgown staring down at them – she disappeared before their eyes. When they reported the sighting, they were told that the figure had been seen before at the site.

Sally in the Woods

Sally in the Woods is an area near Bradford-on-Avon, just a few miles from Homewood Park. The road through the area is a road accident hotspot, for a particularly spooky reason… There have been at least 8 fatal accidents on this short stretch of seemingly innocuous road, with the cause of 7 of those accidents remaining a complete mystery. The road is said to be haunted by a ghost called Sally. Sightings of a ghostly figure running across the road have been reported as well as the sound screams and disembodied voices coming from the woods. But the most common Sally sighting, is in the rear view mirror of the car, when she appears in your back seat…

We hope all of these terrifying tales have got your Halloween juices flowing, but the frightful fun doesn’t end there… Homewood Park is terrified to be hosting ‘A Homewood Horror Story’ on Sunday 30th October. Who knows who might be there?! Perhaps The Fallen Women or Sally from the Woods – regardless we need you to come and help us solve the mystery.
