Netley Abbey dates from 1239.

Some of the stone from the Abbey was used to build St Mary's church in Southampton.

tiny The Society of Paranormal investigators spent a night at one of Southampton's most famous landmarks, Netley Abbey.

Many things are thought to have happened at the Abbey including dark arts, and deaths - such as that of a man who was crushed by one of the walls.

During the night we were there, another investigator and I saw a white figure which was so quick that most of the group failed to see it. The figure was tall and may have been a monk who is regularly seen at the Abbey. He usually appears to sceptics - who leave believing in Ghosts!

Another sighting was that of a tall dark figure reported by many of the group members, and by past visitors to Netley Abbey. This is believed to be the Abbot who was well known for his violent activity at the Abbey - activity which continues today.

Later in the night I heard chanting coming from the nave area. Another investigator and I went to investigate this further and found nothing, yet the chanting continued.

The Abbey may be disused, but its ruins remain here today and, perhaps, so do some of the spirits of those who once lived in this great landmark.
