Long Description:
The Paranormal Database has a tale to tell:

'This ghostly presence is said to tease the cleaning staff by leaving handprints in places just polished, and turning equipment on and off. Footsteps have been heard in empty parts of the building.'

This ghost is surely a joy to mischievous children and an annoyance to the cleaner. Standing on the busy West Street this old house is a surprise with its fine architecture and grand appearance.
Public access?:
Private residence but access to the street outside is available at all times.
