The large, nineteenth-century Underhill House has a sinister history involving murder, suicides and hauntings. Owned by the Army, it was abandoned and was eventually destroyed in a fire in 1978. Here is the sorry series of tragic events that caused the Army to allow Underhill House to become derelict:
In 1887 a man called Alured Denne committed suicide
In 1913 a young officer got into debt through gambling and shot himself
In 1932, an officer's servant cut the throat of his lover, a maid, then shot himself on the stairs as he was about to be arrested
In the 1940s an Army cleric hanged himself in a cupboard It seems these tragic events have resulted in a number of strange manifestations, including objects being displaced, a light bulb falling to the floor without breaking, cold spots and feelings of oppression.
