Halifax Courier (24/Mar/1855) - The Seed Hill Ghost

The following is a transcription of a historic newspaper article and may contain occasional errors.

The Seed Hill Ghost.

The people of Huddersfield have been amused, surprised, and alarmed, as the case may be, these few days back, by the reported visits of a ghost, which secrets itself somewhere in the premises or mansion of Mr. Samuel Routledge, of Seed Hill. What questionable shape it may yet take, who can tell, but so far it has modestly kept out of sight, no one having seen its saucer eyes, if it have any, nor its horns or anything to make "night hideous," beyond a noise. It is known, as yet, but as a ghost of percussion.
