Bettiscombe Manor

It is said that a black companion from the West Indies was brought back to England when the owners returned. When the companion died, the manor was subject to paranormal turbulence and it was then remembered that he had said that would never be separated from his compatriot. When the body was examined, the companion's skull was said to be free of flesh and to have separated from the rest of the corpse. The head was brought indoors and subsequent attempts by new owners to relieve themselves of the grisly ornament have resulted in the resumption of poltergeist-like behaviour until the skull was returned indoors. Although the whole story of the companion would seem to be a concoction (the skull itself belongs to a European lady and/or be prehistoric), there were reports of a presence in the attic that paced back and forth.
