The Hauntings at Borley Rectory (Dramatised) | [Michael, Mollie Hardwick]

The Hauntings at Borley Rectory (Dramatised)

Borley Rectory in rural Suffolk seems to have been plagued with ghosts, particularly that of a young French nun believed to have been murdered on the site. Dark and malevolent shapes, poltergeist activity, and voices from disused cellars and stairways haunt this recording. Borley Rectory burned down in the 1950s - and so did the studio where this eerie reconstruction was recorded.

Audible Editor Reviews

Hunker down with some hot cider and make sure you've left your night-light on before pressing play on this spooky audiobook! The Hauntings at Borley Rectory, written by Michael and Mollie Hardwick, is a chilling full-cast dramatization starring Edward de Souza, Carole Ann Ford, Nicolette Marvin, Hugh Morton, Edmund Pegge, and Peter Penry-Jones, who recount in a wholly haunting performance the tales of those ghosts who once haunted Borley Rectory, in Suffolk, England, a building which was destroyed by fire in the mid-20th century.

The voice actors in this stunning ensemble cast throw themselves fully into this intense and deeply affecting dramatization - don't be surprised if you end up with goose bumps!

    "Too over the top"

    The crying woman was really really annoying! The acting was too melodramatic. It might have been spookier if it had not been so over the top. As it was... not one goose bump.

    "The haunting of Borley Rectory"

    This style of audio performance was going to be (I thought) a sound delight. But, no it was boring. There was no story told, just second-hand--they told the visiting guest, this happened then that happened. Followed by a woman choking? AAH, AAH, AAAAHHHH. And down on through the centuries. The best thing about this performance was that it was over in less than an hour.

    "The Haunting of Borley Rectory"

    I found the above drama very atmospheric-it had the hair standing up on the back of my neck in some parts!
    It was well acted with good narration.
    I have some friends who live near Diss in Norfolk and the next time
    I visit the area I must take a trip 'over the border' into Suffolk and Essex just to see where the Rectory stood.
    I run an internet charity radio service here in Leeds and it would be great to broadcast this if given copyright permission.
