With Halloween approaching the Watford Observer has again joined forces with Watford Museum to recall some spooky stories from the town's past.

Today's subject is Jackson's Jewellers in the town centre.

Founded 1876, the building is from much older.

Largely complete timber-framed house from 1480-1520. The first floor was added in the 16th century.

There have been various reports of ghostly sightings. One such is a ghost in Elizabethan dress which is said to haunt the building.

The apparition was ‘like a grey mist….it had no colour and it was impossible to say whether the doublet was made of velvet or leather’.
