Bristol Central Library - Haunted History

Bristol Central Library, Bristol

Bristol, Bristol

The library stands in College Green next to Bristol Cathedral, one of England's most famous medieval churches that dates back to 1140 when it was founded as an Augustinian abbey. The whole of College Green, including the cathedral and the library is said to be haunted by the ghost of a monk who is often seen walking wearing a grey habit.

Most stories from witnesses tell of the monk wandering out of the cathedral's main door on to College Green, before disappearing in to the library. The library stands on the site of the old Augustinian priory and while the Augustinians wore black habits, some believe this grey monk may have been visiting the priory in life. He’s also spotted in the library itself going through theological documents. The monk entered the library through a bricked up door way which is one of the original entrances to the priory.
