Borley Rectory -
'the most haunted house in England'
1863 - 1939


My mother was Marianne Foyster, who lived at Borley for five years. The rectory was destroyed by fire in 1939. In presenting the following information, I make no judgement as to what is true, what is legend, or what is imagination. I have dedicated my life to researching and gathering as much information as possible - Borley is the main focus of my life. Every piece of evidence available is presented - pro and con. It is up to the reader to decide what to believe and what to discard.
