A Conversation for Gloucester, Gloucestershire, UK

Greetings from the cotswolds! Weve been visiting the city now for over 10yrs, and I seem to be drawn to the ghosts there... There is a book, you can buy it from the shop Ottakas,called Hauted Gloucester, or from the tourist information desk, one in the Docks area.
However not much is mentioned of two of the shops, wehre I found out really only recently where ghosts reside!
From the street, Via Sacra, walking from thecathedral up to the pedestrianized area, from the corner, look opposite, over toward the shop Indie, and the lane leading up there, in the opposite shop, a the second floor there has been a series of disturbing ghost appearances... but now I see someone is living there!
Then walk up, on the opposite side, where there is another lane, is the shoe shop... up on the first floor, is a beautiful ladies dept, but look at the ceiling and brilliant chimney breast, here so they say, are 5 ghosts!Returning down to the via sacra again, is a 2ndhand bookshop, there is a lane going along there, where you can see the old windows, here on the 3rd floor is another ghost, so im told!It pokes ladies, as it passes them, and there is often a scent of lavendar... this bookshop is awesome upstairs!
Ghosts abound, not much is written about the ghosts in the cazthedral cloisters, I was doing some research for an authoress from cornwall, and I felt one of the ghosts, or discarnates, touch me on the cheek and the arm!I was so shocked, but knew it must ahve been a monk, nothing nasty!
