Uley Road Cemetery
Uley Road Cemetery is a small and weathered place of burial that has a long and interesting history. Many of the tombstones have been broken, bent or cracked and the original chapel that once stood nearby no longer exists. The small cemetery, however, remains a still and calm area for those at rest. Yet, there are some who believe the cemetery is haunted and a place where dark entities may dwell.
In 1859 the Uley Road Cemetery was created after a man named Moses Bendle Garlick passed away. Garlick had become a prominent figure in the area of Uleybury, which he had named after his previous home back in England. He contributed to the community greatly by building a schoolhouse and chapel. So, upon his death, it was decided he should rest beside his chapel and Uley Road Cemetery was born.
Hauntings of Uley Road Cemetery
Rumors about Uley Road Cemetery have circulated the area for a long time. They began after the old chapel that once stood nearby became a sort of hang-out spot during the 1970s. Sadly, the chapel suffered a great deal of vandalism and it was said that dark rituals were taking place within the once holy space. This lead to the demolition of the chapel in 1981. After this, the rituals and vandalism were said to have spilled out into the cemetery before eventually ceasing.
Later, strange formations that appeared to be almost symbolic, made from the stone left behind from the chapel, started to appear within the cemetery. No one quite knew who had been creating these mysterious rock formations and this lead to further rumors of more dark rituals being performed in the space. There is little evidence to suggest that these symbols were truly dark or Satanic in nature, especially since some have claimed this to have been a practical joke. However, many believe that darkness has been summoned to the cemetery and perhaps brought along some paranormal energy with it.
Many who have visited the Uley Road Cemetery claim to have encountered dark shadow persons or even have small rocks thrown at them by something unseen. Personally, I am not sure that anything negative in the area lingers, yet more traditional hauntings may be present.
