Yes that was my first thought when he spoke to me about it and bless him he was so scared.
The building i'm assumimg was a Cider Barn, as it is now called The Old Cider Barn.
It was renovated in 2002/2003 into terraced cottages of which there is about 10,
The one we lived in was probably the largest having 3 bedrooms my bedroom was on the first floor
over the living room which is where i saw the head and shoulders (the shoulders being level with the floor)
of a man, i could see him very clearly, though i could still see the wall behind him, i looked him in the eyes, my heart was banging so hard but i didnt feel fear from him it was like he was just seeing what i was doing, it was the middle of the night, i had been sleeping and was woken by something, I assume him, but he was there staring at me, he had white straggly hair, a beard and from his shoulders i would say he was wearing an apron as i could see the straps. I just rolled over in bed and closed my eyes and dare'nt open them again as i felt he had come round the bed and was staring at my face......
My youngest son who was 4 at the time would never stay in the house he always had to go back to his dad at night time, the only time he did stay he would only sleep in the living room on the sofa,
He said he did'nt like the man in the living room.
I can't say what my son's saw but i know for a fact i saw that man, and as it was only his head and shoulders im assuming that before the renovation the floors would have been at a different level.
I really wish i had taken photos of the house but i left after 6 months and moved back in with my husband,
I've tried to research the building but can find nothing other than an old map from the 1800's showing it as a barn surrounded by fields and apple trees.
Hope your having a lovely day Hella and thankyou for you reply
