Couple investigate ghostly tales and tragedy at Standard's HQ Webb House

A COUPLE on a mission to document Redditch’s most spooky ghost stories, visited the Standard’s HQ this week after being told the building is haunted.

From secret underground tunnels, to legless monks and ghostly horses, Clem and Sam Dallaway have spent the last year compiling tales on their website.

This time around the pair visited our offices at Webb House, Church Green East, after hearing reports of an angry old lady, wearing Victorian clothes, who wanders the halls.

Clem said: “We filmed inside Webb House as part of our full-length feature film which will be released on Halloween.

“We run a non-profit website with the sole aim of creating a record for people to see.”

According to The Redditch Indicator newspaper, published on July 1887, William Webb, the baker at what is now Webb House, shot himself.

A double-barrelled gun was found close to his body and his death was described as ‘instantaneous’.

To hear more about Clem and Sam’s visit head to and listen to this week’s podcast.
