50 BERKELEY SQUARE

“Perhaps the most famous of all haunted houses

in London is Number 50,

Berkeley Square…”

“When I called there in June, 1970,

I learned that the occupants are still pestered

by curiosity seekers…”

“Probably the story that did more than any other to enhance the reputation of the house concerned two sailors…”

“...who found themselves penniless in London in the 1870’s…”

“…and broke in to obtain a roof over their heads for the night.”

“…they were disturbed during the night first by banging noises, like door-slamming…”

“...and then by footsteps that seemed to slither and slide up the stairs and approach the[ir] door…”

“After a moment the door handle turned and ‘something shapeless and horrible’ oozed into the room.”

“One sailor escaped to get the help of a policeman passing by…”

“...upon returning to the scene,

they discover the body of the other sailor

…with his neck broken…”

“…but the policeman found no trace

of the horrible creature

that had so terrified the two tough sailors…”
