The Most Haunted House in England


The full title, "The Most Haunted House in England: Ten Years' Investigation of Borley Rectory," was written and investigated by, Harry Price. The book was first published in 1940.

The book itself is well documented, Price writes about his explorations and about the history and legend that surrounds Borley Rectory.

At the end of the book, he packs it with appendixes from A to F. These appendixes share list of events, witnesses of the strange events at the rectory, an analysis of the phenomenon, and it even goes more detailed about some of the investigations. So that was quite helpful to have.

Price doesn't necessary write to be dramatic, he doesn't want to just make a terrifying story, he provides his facts of what supposedly really happened. He does touch on the lore of Borley, but tries to find the truth, like the story about the nun.

To some the writing can be a little dry, but really for me it was a quick read. It also has photos to show more what the Rectory had looked like. Another problem is how much one can believe especially since Price had been discredited by some. That's up to the reader to decide and to note many psychic researchers through the years have had this problem.

Overall what Price tried to do is make sense of it and share his own experiences (also others) at the Borley Rectory. If one is looking for a first hand look at the "Most Haunted Place in England," then this book isn't terrible.

It's pack with a lot of information and it's a nice piece of early ghost hunting. It's an interesting piece of commentary. So this book gets 4 stars out of 5.
