St. Paul's Church Bermuda

 
Located in Paget Parish of Bermuda, St. Paul's Church was built in 1796 to replace another old church that was already existing there. It's an Anglican church that has it's own graveyard. One of the graves is of Harold Sidney Harmsworth, a famous man who went on to create the most successful media houses in England and popularized journalism in that country. 
 
He was a shy man and handled the finance &áback office functions while letting his brother handle all the public relations. Harold died in 1940. But the church is probably best known for a ghost story around it. The locals say that there used to be a ghost in the church. 
 
 
 
No one ever saw the ghost but heard strange sounds and tinkling of the bells. It had once drawn a lot of media attention as well. Finally it seems an American scientist solved the mystery and pointed out that the sound was made by a bird - the Filio. However, no one saw the bird thereafter but the sound continued for a while. And one day the ghost was gone, and the sound was never heard again.
