St. Mary's Church

Baglake House

Baglake House was the home of William Light, who committed suicide here in 1748. His sad shade now haunts the house, but he is sometimes seen in company with a ghost in rustling silk. The author Coxe states in 'Haunted Britain' that examples of telekinesis have been reported here.
