The Phantom Bingo Player of Huddersfield
- Updated: October 28th, 2014
With just a few days to go until Halloween, we have some stories that’ll send a real chill down your spine!
The Huddersfield Daily Examiner has compiled a list of creepy tales about supernatural sightings and activity in Huddersfield.
Who knew the northern town was such a top spot for paranormal activity!
We know the story you want to hear about, but first a couple of others…
Black dogs and panthers have seen sighted, during the 20th century and in the last 10 years respectively. The large black dog supposedly haunting the Milnsbridge area would howl at the moon and turn its victims’ blood to ice.
A particularly blood chilling story is the one about a ghost called Jonah who is said to haunt Huddersfield Railway Station and St George’s Square. A former porter at the railway station, Jonah was hit by a train and forced to retire early due to the injuries received. His spiteful laugh is said to be heard when there is an accident on the site, or a narrowly avoided mishap.
And now we come to the bingo related story!
A former bingo hall in the town is thought to be haunted by a bingo player who won the jackpot, only to collapse with a heart attack caused by the shock.
Maybe this will make bingo winners worry about getting just a little *too* excited over their celebrations in the future!
