Sounds like my kind of place. All the advice you've been given so far is all good, particularly the salt (rock or sea salt - not the regular table
variety) and pretty much everything 'ReginaAdonnaAaron' said.
I would also add that you open every window in the place and give it a good blow for as long as possible ... if the weather's bad (been snowing here
give it at least half hour ... just to freshen the energy in the house.
Another tip before moving all your furniture in (hard work but definately worth it) ... sweep each room with a broom ... starting at the corner
furthest from the door ... and out of the door (pay particular attention to the corners ... when you've swept put a sprinkling of salt in each corner
(this should be vacumned up and replaced at least once a month).
You can either sweep the dust debri into one big pile but personally I recommend one room at a time ... gather the sweepings from that room and caste
into running water (if you don't have a handy river or stream nearby flush it down the toilet - might take a couple of flushes) ... then salt the
corners and move onto the next room.
Always start upstairs and work your way down ... finishing off in the hall and sweep the last of the dust out of the front door and wash it away with
a bucket of water.
Also put fresh flowers in the room (a single flower will do but a small bunch is better). This is a good way to cleanse any house prior to movng in
and generally puts off any negative spirits from hanging around. However, because this is such an old place there may be some stubbon residents - but
of course you will only be able to know this once you've moved in.
One final tip; You mentioned there are no lights upstairs so presumably you'll be using torches. Make sure you have a good supply of batteries
because if there are any spirit entities around they are known for draining battery power very quickly. One house I was called to, I had to change the
batteries in my camera 3 times !!!
If you need more help u2u me. Hope this helps a bit to be going on with.
All the best with the move. Woody
