Recently we were approached by Emily Rawle, a Journalism student at Deakin University interested in doing a small piece on ghost stories in Eltham, in support of one of her course assessments. This approach was made in response to a story we ran in 2018 about the Swallow murders in New Street, now Lavender Park Road, Eltham.
Emily was curious whether there were any events in Eltham’s past that could explain ghostly presences and whether these sorts of stories generate interest in the community’s history.
You can listen to Emily’s podcast on her site about an incident in Lavender Park Road her friend experienced and also hear what comments our President, Jim Connor has to offer about other occurences at Edendale Farm.
Have you ever experienced any similar activity? If so, what do you think about Eltham’s ghost stories? Please feel free to share your experiences.
