I and two friends opened a gun repair/manufacturers along with a shooting range in the basement back in the mid 80s. The workshop was in the rear cellar whilst the rest was given over to the shooting centre.


Whilst the builders were working near the front portion of the cellar late one night, both of them swore blind they had seen a woman in old fashioned clothes walk through the place and with our security we knew no one could get in. We never saw anything again but neither of them would ever work at night again either.


We later learnt a woman had died in that spot trapped in the machinery driving belts that ran from the steam engine throughout the factory.
