I suppose some of the Britons know of this location already, but in the town of Knaresborough (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knaresborough) there is a well that has the interesting feature of having water that is very rich in minerals, being able to cover objects in stone. The cave in which the well is located, called Mother Shipton's Cave (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mother_Shipton%27s_Cave), has something of a clothes line from which various petrified objects hang.

Yeah, I'd visit. Lot less creepy than that last one you gave us. Looks pretty cool, actually.

It does have its own paranormal stories, though it is not a batch of ghosts, suicides and people left behind to die this time, but a witch called Mother Shipton.
