Strange Stories UK: The Society of Psychical Research investigate a London ghost

Strange Stories UK: The  Society of Psychical Research investigate a London ghost

I thought it time for a paranormal type episode, this one taken from the journals of the Society for Psychical Research. I do my research in the British Library for these podcasts, this one comes from the 1949 journal.

I like to do a paranormal podcast during the month of May, This story was published in the 1949 Journal of the Society of Psychical Research and was called 'The Woman in Brown'.

 Edward Osbourne was an investigator for the SPR and it was he that wrote up the story.

I gave quite a long lead into the podcast explaining what London was like in 1948, for someone in their 80s, they must have seen so much change during the course of their lifetimes’, it would scarcely seems credible to someone much younger so I thought I would give some description to London life at that time.

There may be something of a delay in my next podcast as I have to do some building works, I am going to try to lay a concrete floor using Youtube tutorials, so I think that will take up most of my time for the next month. I will try to put another podcast out within the month.
