对于促使我们热爱超自然事物的原因，我们都有自己的理由和解释。我曾说过很多次是我的书 USBORNE超级自然世界指南 (I still have it) and whilst it was full of paranormal facts (aimed at kids), one story sucked me in, hook line and paranormal sinker, it was the story of 哈里 Price & 博雷 Rectory.
二月 27th 1939 is not a date that many paranormal lovers will see as a red letter day but if something hadn't happened on that day that involved 博雷 Rectory who knows what status this location would have had in the modern paranormal world: a location for paranormal investigations, an alleged haunted hotspot, would it still have the accolade of THE MOST HAUNTED HOUSE in England? One thing I know is that most people have heard of the 博雷 Rectory story, the "before" 哈里 Price history, the "during" 哈里 Price history and the "after" 哈里 Price history. To me, 哈里 Price perfectly sums up the paranormal in one paragraph, some people call him the greatest ever ghost hunter, some people call him a fraudster, an adequate even in a thinly veiled description of the paranormal world I live & breathe in.
Anyway back to 博雷 Rectory, and to be fair it wasn't flattened due to modernisation, it was gutted by fire, an accident (so they say). As daft as it sounds, the man who accidentally caused the fire planned to turn 博雷 into a tourist attraction, maybe it was just simply not to be.
I'd like to tell a short history of 博雷, in honour of all who lived there, went there and experienced things there. It is a story close to my heart and why I am who I am today. 博雷, despite it being very close to the Suffolk 边界在埃塞克斯（Essex），即使他们只是一个位置，也可以声称在其中间拥有一个知名的“埃塞克斯（Essex）”名人，但在真人秀电视出现之前，它确实获得了名人地位。
