This country house in eastern England is home to one of the most famous ghost photographs of all time. The image shows a mysterious white figure, known as the 'Little Brown Lady of Raynham', descending the hall's staircase. The 'Brown Lady' is believed to be Dorothy, the wife of the house's one-time owner Charles Townsend.

Legend says she was locked up in the house by her furious husband after being found to have committed adultery, and was forbidden to leave even to see her own children. At twilight, 'Dolly' is said to haunt Raynham's oak staircase, an apparition that was apparently captured by Country Life magazine photographers in the famed 1936 photo.

We've scoured the globe to bring you thirteen places renowned for being hives of unexplained paranormal activity.Edinburgh Castle, ScotlandThe historic cobbled streets and grey stone buildings of Edinburgh are evocative of times gone by, so it's unsurprising that the Scottish capital's 900-year-old castle, which towers above the city atop a craggy rock face, is renowned for its ghosts. In fact, some will say that Edinburgh itself is the most haunted city in Europe.Visitors to the castle have reported seeing phantom pipers and headless drummers, as well as the spirits of prisoners of war spanning several centuries. Some have even claimed to have seen a ghost hound wandering around the castle's dog cemetery.If you can stop your hand from trembling in trepidation, why not click through to discover more ghoulish destinations?topEdinburgh Castle, ScotlandEdinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Edinburgh Castle, Scotland(©Getty Images)Gettysburg Battlefield, Pennsylvania, USAAs the site of one of the bloodiest battles of the American civil war, it's no surprise that this patch of Pennsylvania is thought to be one of the most haunted places in the U.S. Ghostly figures are said to walk the fields, and visitors have reported hearing eerie battle sounds on the wind. It's also where one of the most compelling videos of ghostly activity ever was captured. In 2001, Tom Underwood shot footage of what he claimed were 13 spectres walking through woodland off the Triangular Field.Watch Tom Underwood's '13 ghosts' video on BingtopGettysburg Battlefield, Pennsylvania, USAGettysburg Battlefield, Pennsylvania, USA(©AP Photo-J.

Scott Applewhite)Aokigahara ForestThis dense forest in the shadow of Mt. Fuji is one of Japan's most spine-chilling locations and has become famous as the world's second most popular suicide spot. On average, 30 people a year take their own lives beneath the dense canopy, with the current annual record standing at 100 in 2010. Local residents take part in a gruesome annual 'body hunt' to recover cadavers, and authorities have even resorted to putting up signs in an attempt to persuade suicidal people to reconsider their actions.The popularity is often blamed on the 1960 novel 'Nami no Tō' by Seichō Matsumoto, which ends with two lovers taking their lives in the forest. However, prior to that it was believed to be a centre of the ancient practice of Ubasate, where sickly relatives were allegedly taken to remote locations by their family and left to starve to death. The spirits of the victims of this practice are said to haunt the forest.topAokigahara ForestAokigahara Forest(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI-a.collectionRF-Getty Images)Aokigahara Forest(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI-a.collectionRF-Getty Images)Aokigahara Forest(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI-a.collectionRF-Getty Images)Aokigahara Forest(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI-a.collectionRF-Getty Images)Aokigahara Forest(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI-a.collectionRF-Getty Images)Aokigahara Forest(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI-a.collectionRF-Getty Images)Aokigahara Forest(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI-a.collectionRF-Getty Images)Aokigahara Forest(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI-a.collectionRF-Getty Images)Aokigahara Forest(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI-a.collectionRF-Getty Images)Aokigahara Forest(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI-a.collectionRF-Getty Images)Aokigahara Forest(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI-a.collectionRF-Getty Images)Aokigahara Forest(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI-a.collectionRF-Getty Images)Aokigahara Forest(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI-a.collectionRF-Getty Images)Catacombs, Paris, FranceAs the population of Paris grew during the 18th Century, the city's cemeteries began to fill up and authorities resorted to the imaginative, if somewhat insensitive, measure of storing bodies in an underground ossuary converted from Paris' ancient stone mines. Around 6 million people's remains are believed to be interred there. With such grave disrespect for the dead shown on such a grand scale, it's no wonder the catacombs are reportedly haunted. Visitors have claimed to have been touched by invisible hands and felt the sensation of being followed. In rarer, more extreme cases, some have had hysterical breakdowns or claimed to have been strangled.topCatacombs, Paris, FranceCatacombs, Paris, France(©Getty Images)Catacombs, Paris, France(©Getty Images)Catacombs, Paris, France(©Getty Images)Catacombs, Paris, France(©Getty Images)Catacombs, Paris, France(©Getty Images)Catacombs, Paris, France(©Getty Images)Catacombs, Paris, France(©Getty Images)Catacombs, Paris, France(©Getty Images)Catacombs, Paris, France(©Getty Images)Catacombs, Paris, France(©Getty Images)Catacombs, Paris, France(©Getty Images)Catacombs, Paris, France(©Getty Images)Catacombs, Paris, France(©Getty Images)Changi beach, SingaporeDespite being such a tiny country, Singapore has reported more than its share of paranormal activity. Changi beach, in the east of the island nation, was used as a killing ground by the Japanese during the Sook Ching massacre of the Second World War, during which thousands of Chinese were tortured and murdered. Witnesses have reported mysterious crying and screaming and headless bodies walking along the beach. On top of this, the Old Changi Hospital and Changi Beach House are said to be two of the most haunted buildings in Asia.topChangi beach, SingaporeChangi beach, Singapore(©Getty Images-Thank You)Changi beach, Singapore(©Getty Images-Thank You)Changi beach, Singapore(©Getty Images-Thank You)Changi beach, Singapore(©Getty Images-Thank You)Changi beach, Singapore(©Getty Images-Thank You)Changi beach, Singapore(©Getty Images-Thank You)Changi beach, Singapore(©Getty Images-Thank You)Changi beach, Singapore(©Getty Images-Thank You)Changi beach, Singapore(©Getty Images-Thank You)Changi beach, Singapore(©Getty Images-Thank You)Changi beach, Singapore(©Getty Images-Thank You)Changi beach, Singapore(©Getty Images-Thank You)Changi beach, Singapore(©Getty Images-Thank You)Ballygally Castle, Co. Antrim, Northern IrelandBallygally Castle is the only 17th Century castle in Northern Ireland still used as a residence and, more importantly, is considered the Emerald Isle's most haunted building. The castle's most famous ghost is that of Lady Isobel Shaw. Her husband is believed to have taken to withholding food from her after she was unable to produce a male heir and, rather than starving to death, she chose to take her own life by jumping out of a window. Her ghost is said to walk the halls at night, waking guests by knocking on doors, only to mysteriously vanish once they're opened.topBallygally Castle, Co.

It is supposedly one of America's most haunted buildings, and visitors have reported strange weeping, giggling and whispering sounds coming from inside the prison walls.topEastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USAEastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA(©AP Photo-Matt Rourke)Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA(©AP Photo-Matt Rourke)Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA(©AP Photo-Matt Rourke)Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA(©AP Photo-Matt Rourke)Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA(©AP Photo-Matt Rourke)Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA(©AP Photo-Matt Rourke)Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA(©AP Photo-Matt Rourke)Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA(©AP Photo-Matt Rourke)Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA(©AP Photo-Matt Rourke)Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA(©AP Photo-Matt Rourke)Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA(©AP Photo-Matt Rourke)Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA(©AP Photo-Matt Rourke)Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA(©AP Photo-Matt Rourke)Coliseum, Rome, ItalyNot only is Rome's Coliseum one of the most iconic ancient buildings in the world, it's also believed to be one of the most haunted. The blood lust of Julius Caeser and his subjects meant that political prisoners were forced to fight to the death with ferocious beasts in the crimson-stained sands of the arena.In the now exposed pits beneath the coliseum, tour guides, security guards and visitors have spoken of cold spots, being touched or pushed, hearing the sounds of swords clashing and the ghostly roars of lions. Elsewhere in the complex, a common sight is that of a Roman soldier standing watch, spookily silhouetted by the night sky.topColiseum, Rome, ItalyColiseum, Rome, Italy(©Photoservice - Electa Universal - Rex Features)Coliseum, Rome, Italy(©Photoservice - Electa Universal - Rex Features)Coliseum, Rome, Italy(©Photoservice - Electa Universal - Rex Features)Coliseum, Rome, Italy(©Photoservice - Electa Universal - Rex Features)Coliseum, Rome, Italy(©Photoservice - Electa Universal - Rex Features)Coliseum, Rome, Italy(©Photoservice - Electa Universal - Rex Features)Coliseum, Rome, Italy(©Photoservice - Electa Universal - Rex Features)Coliseum, Rome, Italy(©Photoservice - Electa Universal - Rex Features)Coliseum, Rome, Italy(©Photoservice - Electa Universal - Rex Features)Coliseum, Rome, Italy(©Photoservice - Electa Universal - Rex Features)Coliseum, Rome, Italy(©Photoservice - Electa Universal - Rex Features)Coliseum, Rome, Italy(©Photoservice - Electa Universal - Rex Features)Coliseum, Rome, Italy(©Photoservice - Electa Universal - Rex Features)1140 Royal Street, New Orleans, USANew Orleans is America's most colourful city, but it is also said to be its most haunted. Of all the haunted houses in The Big Easy, the French Quarter mansion once inhabited by socialite Delphine LaLaurie has the most gruesome and infamous story attached to it.Madame LaLaurie and her husband , Dr. Louis LaLaurie, lived a lavish existence at 1140 Royal Street having moved there in 1832. Like many at that time the LaLauries kept black slaves, but made them suffer through appalling conditions. Neighbours reported hearing screams and noticed servants suddenly disappearing never to be seen again. After a fire ravaged the house in 1834, the full extent of the maltreatment of the LaLauries' slaves was revealed. A torture chamber in the attic was discovered, with more than a dozen slaves either incarcerated in cages or strapped to makeshift operating tables. Body parts were said to be strewn around the room and heads and organs placed unceremoniously in buckets. This horrifying discovery stunned and sickened New Orleans, and the LaLauries fled the city before facing justice.Visitors to the house since have, unsurprisingly, spoken of ghostly activity. Apparitions of a black man in chains and a slave girl who was whipped on the roof by Madame LaLaurie have been sighted several times, while eerie screams and a strange, foul-smelling liquid appearing from nowhere have also been reported.top1140 Royal Street, New Orleans, USA1140 Royal Street, New Orleans, USA(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI - a.collectionRF - Getty Images)1140 Royal Street, New Orleans, USA(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI - a.collectionRF - Getty Images)1140 Royal Street, New Orleans, USA(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI - a.collectionRF - Getty Images)1140 Royal Street, New Orleans, USA(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI - a.collectionRF - Getty Images)1140 Royal Street, New Orleans, USA(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI - a.collectionRF - Getty Images)1140 Royal Street, New Orleans, USA(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI - a.collectionRF - Getty Images)1140 Royal Street, New Orleans, USA(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI - a.collectionRF - Getty Images)1140 Royal Street, New Orleans, USA(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI - a.collectionRF - Getty Images)1140 Royal Street, New Orleans, USA(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI - a.collectionRF - Getty Images)1140 Royal Street, New Orleans, USA(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI - a.collectionRF - Getty Images)1140 Royal Street, New Orleans, USA(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI - a.collectionRF - Getty Images)1140 Royal Street, New Orleans, USA(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI - a.collectionRF - Getty Images)1140 Royal Street, New Orleans, USA(©JUNKO TAKAHASHI - a.collectionRF - Getty Images)Philippine Military Academy, Baguio City, PhilippinesThis active military academy in the Philippines' Baguio City is reportedly home to a number of ghosts, believed to be the spirits of those killed by the Japanese during their Second World War occupation of the country. Visitors have reported hearing the ghostly sound of boots stomping on the parade ground, while others have seen a ghost dressed in full military regalia, the beheaded spirit of a priest and an eerie woman clad entirely in white wandering the complex.topPhilippine Military Academy, Baguio City, PhilippinesPhilippine Military Academy, Baguio City, Philippines(©AP PHOTO-Fernando Sepe Jr)Philippine Military Academy, Baguio City, Philippines(©AP PHOTO-Fernando Sepe Jr)Philippine Military Academy, Baguio City, Philippines(©AP PHOTO-Fernando Sepe Jr)Philippine Military Academy, Baguio City, Philippines(©AP PHOTO-Fernando Sepe Jr)Philippine Military Academy, Baguio City, Philippines(©AP PHOTO-Fernando Sepe Jr)Philippine Military Academy, Baguio City, Philippines(©AP PHOTO-Fernando Sepe Jr)Philippine Military Academy, Baguio City, Philippines(©AP PHOTO-Fernando Sepe Jr)Philippine Military Academy, Baguio City, Philippines(©AP PHOTO-Fernando Sepe Jr)Philippine Military Academy, Baguio City, Philippines(©AP PHOTO-Fernando Sepe Jr)Philippine Military Academy, Baguio City, Philippines(©AP PHOTO-Fernando Sepe Jr)Philippine Military Academy, Baguio City, Philippines(©AP PHOTO-Fernando Sepe Jr)Philippine Military Academy, Baguio City, Philippines(©AP PHOTO-Fernando Sepe Jr)Philippine Military Academy, Baguio City, Philippines(©AP PHOTO-Fernando Sepe Jr)RMS Queen Mary, Long Beach, California, USAThis former Cunard cruise liner was launched in Glasgow in 1936 and ferried high-end passengers including Winston Churchill and the British Royals across the Atlantic, but after being retired in 1968 it became permanently moored in Long Beach, California and has been used as a museum and tourist attraction since 1971.It's also a hive of paranormal goings-on, and ghost hunter Peter James identified over 150 entities on the ships decks. They include the ghost of a man who was crushed to death in Door 13 of the engine room, a woman in 1930s swimwear who lurks by the ship's swimming pool and ghostly dancers and mysterious piano music in what was the First Class lounge.topRMS Queen Mary, Long Beach, California, USARMS Queen Mary, Long Beach, California, USA(©Getty Images)RMS Queen Mary, Long Beach, California, USA(©Getty Images)RMS Queen Mary, Long Beach, California, USA(©Getty Images)RMS Queen Mary, Long Beach, California, USA(©Getty Images)RMS Queen Mary, Long Beach, California, USA(©Getty Images)RMS Queen Mary, Long Beach, California, USA(©Getty Images)RMS Queen Mary, Long Beach, California, USA(©Getty Images)RMS Queen Mary, Long Beach, California, USA(©Getty Images)RMS Queen Mary, Long Beach, California, USA(©Getty Images)RMS Queen Mary, Long Beach, California, USA(©Getty Images)RMS Queen Mary, Long Beach, California, USA(©Getty Images)RMS Queen Mary, Long Beach, California, USA(©Getty Images)RMS Queen Mary, Long Beach, California, USA(©Getty Images)Screaming Tunnel, Niagara Falls, CanadaAt first sight wouldn't expect this majestic tourist haven, with its thundering torrents of water, to be home to ghosts. But, if you were to delve a little deeper into Niagara Falls' environs, you might stumble across the so-called 'Screaming Tunnel', located just to the north-west section of Niagara Falls Ontario.The tunnel was built by Grand Trunk Railroad in the early 1900s as part of a larger rail project that was never completed. There are many variations to the tale that led to the legend, but all of them end with a frightened young girl being burned to death inside the tunnel. The story goes: if you light a match at night, the sound of a girl screaming will resonate around you and your flame will suddenly go out.topScreaming Tunnel, Niagara Falls, CanadaScreaming Tunnel, Niagara Falls, Canada(©Orchidpoet-Getty Images)Screaming Tunnel, Niagara Falls, Canada(©Orchidpoet-Getty Images)Screaming Tunnel, Niagara Falls, Canada(©Orchidpoet-Getty Images)Screaming Tunnel, Niagara Falls, Canada(©Orchidpoet-Getty Images)Screaming Tunnel, Niagara Falls, Canada(©Orchidpoet-Getty Images)Screaming Tunnel, Niagara Falls, Canada(©Orchidpoet-Getty Images)Screaming Tunnel, Niagara Falls, Canada(©Orchidpoet-Getty Images)Screaming Tunnel, Niagara Falls, Canada(©Orchidpoet-Getty Images)Screaming Tunnel, Niagara Falls, Canada(©Orchidpoet-Getty Images)Screaming Tunnel, Niagara Falls, Canada(©Orchidpoet-Getty Images)Screaming Tunnel, Niagara Falls, Canada(©Orchidpoet-Getty Images)Screaming Tunnel, Niagara Falls, Canada(©Orchidpoet-Getty Images)Screaming Tunnel, Niagara Falls, Canada(©Orchidpoet-Getty Images)Raynham Hall, Norfolk, EnglandThis country house in eastern England is home to one of the most famous ghost photographs of all time.
