Lee Jessup works in a 16th Century house thought to be the most haunted in Wales — Llancaiach Fawr.
The old manor was built around 1550 and reported ghoulish goings-on from its resident ghosts include mysterious footsteps and laughter.
But Lee’s story is even creepier than some unexplained noises.
He told the BBC about his personal experience with the “ghost” who now is said to stalk him.
“She didn’t look transparent like would expect a classic ghost to be”
He said: “People who were working here and had worked here quite some some would tell me stories of what had happened to them.”
He added that visitors “experienced things” and although initially taking the tales with a pinch of salt, “any skepticism has been eroded”.
In fact, after his own haunting he is convinced there is “certainly something going on at Llancaiach”.
He added: “I think just about everybody who works here has had some sort of experience.
“Personally my experience at Llancaiach started shortly after I came to work here.
“I was downstairs in the kitchens, late in the day, I was damping the fire down before we locked and alarmed the house for the night.
“I turned to my right and stood at the bottom of the steps and there was a figure of a girl, probably 15, 16 years old.”
He said the girl wore a long cloak with a hood pulled back so he could see her hair.
Lee wasn’t alarmed and said he “smiled at her, nodded.”
He added: “She didn’t look transparent like would expect a classic ghost to be.”
But the ghost story doesn’t end there, years later a woman who claimed to be a medium sidled up to Lee with a spine-chilling revelation.
According to Lee, she said, “You know there’s a girl who follows you around this house?”
And Lee, unconvinced, said he asked her “Really? Can you describe her?”
To his astonishment she did — and it matched the description of the strange figure he thought he saw years before.
He said: “She gave a description of the girl I’d seen stood at the bottom of the cellar steps.”
