By George Unite, Birmingham, 1925
Another ghostly inhabitant of Blickling is Anne’s father, Thomas Boleyn. He engineered his daughter’s marriage to England’s monarch. It is said that because of his doings, he lost his daughter and his son and as penance he is required to cross a dozen bridges before cockrow for a thousand years. His route is from Blickling to Aylsham to Burg to Buxton Cotishall to Meyton to Oxnead and finally to Wroxham.
Just like his daughter, he was also beheaded and he carried his head under his arms. Flame is also said to gush from his mouth, instead of blood.
The headless apparitions of the Boleyns are supposedly not the only ghosts that haunt this great mansion. Sir John Fastolfe, the 15th Century knight who Shakespear’s Falstaff was based on is said to haunt Blickling hall too. He has been seen throughout building. There have also been reports of the “Grey Lady” floating through walls.
Most of the activity centres around May 19, the anniversary of Anne Boleyn’s execution.
