Ghost of John Thurlow Reade at Ipsden House

26 February 2021 (Updated 20 September 2022)

Despite dying in Sehaarunpore, India in 1827, the ghost of John Thurlow Reade reportedly appeared to his mother at his childhood home, Ipsden House.

His brother Edward later erected a monument in his memory in a field to the north of the house, with an inscription 'Alas! My poor brother.'

Ibsden House is also notable for the stone circle that stands within the grounds. Although at first glance it may appear ancient, it was actually only constructed in 1827.
