Wiltshire is a ceremonial county in South West England. It is landlocked and borders the counties of Dorset, Somerset, Hampshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire.
The ancient county town was Wilton, but since 1930 Wiltshire County Council and its successor Wiltshire Council (from 2009) have been based at Trowbridge.
Ghosts, premonitions and superstition all feature as part of the haunted heritage of Longleat. It is reputedly haunted by the ghosts of a Green Lady, a Grey Lady, Sir John Thynne (the first occupant of Longleat), and a “tall, dark haired” young man reading a book.
