The Haunted Harbours of Barmouth Fishing Town, Barmouth, Wales, UK

'Aber' meaning ESTUARY.

It is believed that water may attract spirits and or paranormal activity! So its no surprise that when i recently enjoyed my annual holiday in the ancient fishing town of Barmouth on the River Mawddach off Aber Estuary and spoke to some good local folk about any spooky goings on along the shores - lets just say the tales were aplenty!

Barmouth is nestled amongst the Cader Idris mountain range and has its own railway system. Folklore says that sailors fought off a giant sea serpent which attacked their boats here snapping the masts! Many have witnessed unexplained light anomalies dancing upon the harbours waters believed to be the Barmouth water fairies! 

There have been many reports of a tall dark shadow figure which runs fast along the railway tracks!

One lady told me she had lived in Barmouth all her life and her cottage is haunted by the spirit of a fiesty old man who likes to grope her a little too snuggly on cold nights! She laughed as she explained initially she was terrified but now she simply tells him off and the activity ceases! 

An elderly gentleman explained how his grand daughter would tell him she plays with a little girl at the church yard on sundays who says she is from the olden days but likes to play !

And lastly a woman explained how one night she sat on the promenade telling her family all about her late father when he literally appeared with them sat on the same wooden bench! She claimed he was smiling and calm and then swiftly disappeared!

Some actually believe Barmouth to be a portal ever since in 1922 Flying Officer Brian Holding was incoming from Chester and attempted to land the airstrip in Wales. Officer Holding was never seen again and it is said that strange lights were witnessed in the skies during the weeks before his endeavour! Since then there have been numerous unexplained happenings around the area. Many believe the waters attract a spiritual realm and may act as an opening or doorway.

A beautiful place to visit if ever you are in the UK! I went once and now frequently recharge there! 

Photographs are my very own holiday snaps! Enjoy!
