The Horsingdon Transmissions No.126: This House is Haunted

The murder-suicide of a brother and sister took place this house in Hallowmere Lane sometime during the late 1950 - shortly after their neighbour had discovered that, for the past two decades, the pair had been engaged in an incestuous relationship. The forlorn ghosts of a man and a woman who bear a close resemblance to each other are now said to haunt this place.

In Horsingdon, a dilapidated house with an overgrown garden almost always demarcates the boundary of one of those zones of transition between this world and those which lie beyond, between the human and the inhuman: points of uncanny intersection, about which transgression and tragedy invariably lurk.
