HIGHGATE CEMETERY HAUNTS
LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG
The story of Highgate Cemetery Haunts.
Most people have heard
of the Seven Wonder of the Ancient World, but very few know that one
of the most haunted cities in Europe, London, is the proud holder of
the "Magnificent Seven", the seven older private cemeteries of the
United Kingdom where haunting occurs any time, any day.
Out of all of them Highgate Cemetery,
the so-called Victorian Valhalla, is the most bizarre and scenario
of diverse paranormal and unexplainable phenomena, from ghostly
apparitions to vampires, UFO's, and strange pagan practices. Famous
also for the flora and fauna haven, the cemetery is home to the
corpses and "living" ghosts of Charles Dickens and Dante Gabriel
Rossetti that have been seen nearby their tombs.
In the 19th century, the cemetery ran
through the west side of the actual Swain's Lane, but eventually
extended to the East side for a total of 37 acres with 52,000
graves, 168,000 names engraved, and not less than 850 notable people
buried here. The Egyptian Avenue, a pathway that connects both sides
of the cemetery, is the place where haunts of ghouls are commonly
observed, including spooky sightings reported by paranormal
investigators from USA and Greece.
At the end of Egyptian Avenue, the
Circle of Lebanon features a Gothic area of family vaults with a
Columbarium, place for urns and catacombs where most haunting
activity occurs in Highgate Cemetery. In the top, a three-century
old Cedar of Lebanon, after which this area was named, is the ideal
location to see from the distance a man who walks below in the
circle going through the Columbarium walls.
In the highest point of the cemetery,
Italian craftsmen built a mausoleum for Julius Beer with a cost of
£5000, which are about £2 or £3 million pounds today. Beer was a
poor German resident of London that left Frankfurt to make a fortune
in the Stock Exchange; however, he suffered the ostracism of the
Victorian High Society, always concerned with the inheritance of
people rather than their commercial success.
Hurt by their attitude, Julius Beer
ordered that his mausoleum were built at 1000 feet above sea level
and above all other graves in Highgate. Beer made his dream came
true becoming to the Lord of the Highgate’s death and today he has
been seen rejoicing this fact, observing visitors since the higher
point of the cemetery is where his ghost "lives".
