SHAKESPEARE'S DAUGHTER'S HOUSE - OUR GHOSTLY ENCOUNTER -
Hall's Croft is the name of Shakespeare's daughter, Susanna's house. It's a great example of a half-timbered building from the 1600's. Susanna lived there with her husband Dr John Hall, a reknown physician.
GHOSTS- Both of us got light-headed on the first floor of this house. As I (Rob) entered, I got a searing headache, followed by chest pain, indicating a heart attack of someone that lived in the house. (Ghosts will share the pain of how they died to help identify them -I just have to tell them to cut it out!). When I got the pain, I got the name "John." That was before I found out the name of Shakespeare's son-in-law, which happened to be "John." As we walked through the house I learned that John Hall died at 60 years old in 1635 - and it was likely a heart attack.

When I asked the two employees about ghosts, neither reported anything paranormal and said they worked there for seven years.
HOWEVER - According to Stratford Town Hall Walk's website, "There have been many ghostly sightings over the years, including the mysterious lady with red hair, and a flying spoon! (http://www.stratfordtownwalk.co.uk/index.php?id=59)"
VIDEO REPORT OF THE GHOSTLY ENCOUNTERS - As you can see by this video I made from the garden at Shakespeare's Daughter's house- the ghosts were really making my head hurt.
