The Last Journey is based around Borley Rectory, which gained fame as “the most haunted house in England”, and was directed by Carl Stickley who has worked for Channel 5.

The film stars John West, an actor, author and radio broadcaster from Suffolk, Peter Jennings, who is also an author and radio presenter based in the county and Katherine Nichols, a model from Belton, near Great Yarmouth.

Mr West, who also wrote the film, said he had a “couple of strange, spooky experiences” filming at Borley.

“We hope to film more such dramas in Suffolk and Essex and these will be based on ghost stories I’ve written about in magazines,” he added.
