Now a poltergeist, from the German poltern for knock or rumble and geist for spirit, is thought to be a manifestation of a mischievous or sometimes malevolent spirit sometimes connected with a child or adolescent.  Well there are no children living here but there use to be 3 teenagers, 2 of whom had there rooms upstairs.
After a while the sounds and the damage stopped .  Then last week we began finding the door to the attic open and neither of us had been near it, and then a couple of days ago a shelf came down in the pub and stuff was thrown on the floor, luckily it was pewter mugs and not china ones.  I'm getting nervous.
