Auldgirth, The River Nith c.1960
Memories of Auldgirth
i went to school with one of the daughters who lived in this house she said it was very creepy. last year 2013 my son attended closeburn nursery with a little girl whos family are now living there and they said there are not so much sightings now but they do continue to hear and feel things particularly in the upstairs of the house.
About 10 to 15 years ago I remember reading an article in the Sunday Post concerning a haunted cottage in Auldgirth. Apparently there was a considerable amount of poltergeist activity and eventually a clergyman was called in to perform a rite of exorcism. Does anybody have any more information? Has the poltergeist activity continued or ceased?
My father Colin Seaton was born and raised in Auldgirth, he was the youngest of 5 children. He left Scotland when he was 17 and now lives in australia. Does anyone remember the Seaton family at all? I visited Auldgirth back in 2007 and there wasn't anyone around that remember my fathers family, any information would be great
I was born in Hayfield Cottages, Auldgirth in April 1931. My first year at school Mrs Garthwaite was my teacher. She lived in the house just north of the school. In the mid 30s my brother Bob and I saw an airship fly over Barbra Mill. Can anyone else remember that? Aulgirth sports were held in the field across from the inn. (...Read full memory)
