St. John's College Library - Haunted History

St. John's College Library, Oxford

Oxford, Oxfordshire

The library in the University of Oxford is said to be haunted by the headless ghost of Archbishop William Laud, who was beheaded in 1645 following impeachment by the Long Parliament. His ghost is said to disturb the peace of the library by kicking his severed head along the library floor. Others have reported hearing the sound of disembodied footsteps in the long reading room, which was built by Laud in the 17th Century and is known as the Laudian Library.
