Glenloth Hall…..a small part of what’s left of the town called Glenloth ,on a back road to Charlton.
We stopped at this Hall ,as it grabbed out attention while driving past.
Not much in this town now ,that once was most likely a busy place with the grain silo rail head that’s still standing but unused.
If you didn’t already know ,we love old places that hold a lot of history.
With an open gate and no sign to say Keep Out! a couple of us ventured into the Hall for a quick look.
The Hall isn’t huge,just a stage with a small room either side of the stage and some stairs.And toward the front of the hall another couple of rooms, one with a fire-place.
While all of us left the Hall and went for a walk up the road to take a look at the Silo and rail-head,Beaudine & Nadeine stayed behind.
About 15 minutes later they joined us up the road,after running from the Hall spooked!
Apparently after we left they went to the stage at the far end of the hall ,and were standing there.By now it was dark inside as the sun had just set out side,they had one headlamp torch between them as they stood on the stage.
They were arguing over a camera,both of them wanted to take some pictures of inside the hall.
While standing there debating who got the camera,what seemed to be a phone….started to ring!
The only problem was ,they’d just explored every room in that hall , there was no one inside and certainly no phone.
So as they tell us…….the camera became the last thing on their mind as they grabbed each others arm and stood there huddled together listening to a phone ring in an empty Hall .The worst part though , they had to run past the room that the phone noise was coming from, to exit the building.
The mystery of the ringing phone will remain just that! …….a mystery.
