Rumour has it there is a dog with jet black fur, snarling fangs and eyes blacker than the dead of night, the dog apparently roams the streets around Bunting Nook, Norton, hunting for men to savage in the dark. Apparently, the dog makes the car stall before preying on any male passenger of cars. It was last sighted 13 years ago in 2007.
This scary old corridor at Sheffield's main hospital has apparently had many reports of ghostly patients walking up to nurses and doctors asking them to help them to sleep. However, when the staff try to reach out to them, they disappear.
Campo Lane, in the city centre near the Cathedral, is the dividing line between ‘old Sheffield' and the newer half of the city. Right in the centre, the old area is known as Hartshead, and it's allegedly home to many ghosts thanks to being built on the site of an old well from Celtic and Roman times.
The Old Queens Head is said to have a Civil War soldier who stands in front of the fireplace and has been seen by the general public. There is also a medieval child who's known by the name 'Pierre' who loves blonde-haired women and pulls on their hair to get their attention.
This building is said to be home to a lady dressed in a beautiful purple dress, Victorian in style, who walks through the place to her death. She has been chased before and disappeared at the back of the building.
Billed as Sheffield's most haunted place, this former watering hole, now a Starbucks, is nevertheless said to be home to many a restless spirit. The ghosts that inhabit this old inn have been known to throw open doors, smash bottles and even lock people in the toilets against their will.
Paranormal investigators have captured the image of what appears to be women at the back of this corridor. The now derelict building dates back to the Georgian era and opened as a pub in 1822 before sadly closing in 2008. The building has been dubbed one of the most haunted sites in the city.
This notorious building is another of Sheffield's most haunted landmarks. Visitors have reported regular cold spots and extreme drops in temperature inside the building - a former combined police and fire station which dates from 1900 - and the spirit of a young pickpocket is said to haunt it's corridors.
The Lord John Darcy Suite is said to be haunted by the White Lady of Mosborough Hall. The story of the White Lady, goes back to the late 1600’s. A governess at the Hall had flirted with the squire and found herself to be pregnant. The squire promised her monies and a small cottage, but finding himself in some financial restraint had finally refused. The angry voices, occasionally heard, are reputed to be their last bitter argument when the girl’s final threat was to tell his wife about the affair which led to her tragic death. He had visited her room on the pretext of keeping his promises and in one moment of desperation had slit the poor girl’s throat.
Finally, we end with probably Sheffield's most famous haunted locale, the road connecting Sheffield and the Peak District has been well documented by those interested in paranormal activities. There are countless reports of dark figures and shadowy beings spooking drivers along this eerie stretch of road.
