Dark Places: Borley Rectory

Borley Rectory is in Essex, England. In 1362 the Benedictine Monks built a monastery there. A nun from the Bures convent, 7 miles southeast of Borley, fell in love with a monk from the monastery. They had decided to elope to be together, but the elders discovered their plans. The monk was hanged and the nun was bricked up alive in the walls of the vaults beneath the rectory. Their ghosts have haunted the site ever since.
