Minsden Chapel
Minsden Chapel is situated just south of Hitchin in Hertfordshire, heading out of Hitchin on the B656 towards Welwyn, turn right on the B651 to St Pauls Walden. Follow this road down about quarter of a mile, you will see a small wooded area on a slight hill to your right. Minsden Chapel is in this wooded area. There is a public right of way footpath leading along the field boundary up to and past the chapel.

This haunting and other paranormal phenomenon, was first documented by Reginald Hine an amateur historian, who had leased the crumbling ruins of the chapel for his lifetime. The Chapel was built in the fourteenth century, 'Hine' was a respected solicitor, he also wrote a book called "Confessions of an Un-Common Attorney". He loved the building so much that he wanted to be buried there but could not gain permission, however his ashes would be scattered at Minsden upon his death and a plaque was erected on it's wall. Due to vandalism in the 1980's the plaque was removed and laced on the ground. Within his writings he published a warning that "I will pursue any trespassers or sacrilegious person in death as a ghost as I did while I was alive".
Minsden Chapel is said to be haunted by several entities and examples of paranormal phenomena, these include, "the sounds of sweet and plaintive music", a figure in White, a ghostly monk who it has been claimed to climb up the long gone stairs in the chapel.There is also a legend of a Nun who was murdered and the ringing of the lost bells of Minsden which in turn caused the ghostly monk to disappear. Other investigators claim to have heard the faint sound of distant music and reported seeing the glow of a cross on a wall. Shadowy figures and strange animal reactions while in the vicinity of the chapel.
Halloween - All hallows eve, are claimed to be the best night for this location, though reports claim that this is not the only time these phenomena are seen. I have visited Minsden Chapel on several occasions during the day and night and at Halloween, but never been lucky enough to witness anything that could even loosely be called paranormal or felt anything on my psychic radar.
