Les the Courthouse ghost: Nowra NSW
« on: August 17, 2019, 05:51:51 PM »
Since 1932 the Nowra Courthouse has had a series of hauntings. A registrar of the Court of Petty Sessions died in a room on the eastern side of the building. 

‘Les’ the ghost is said to take offence to people working outside of hours and will make its presence felt by the air becoming very cold and breezy. 
Another favourite annoyance of Les is turning lights on and off in the court room, magistrate’s office and judge’s chamber. Electricians never found a fault.

There was one district court judge Les didn’t like during the 1980s. Whenever the judge would enter the bathroom, Les would turn off the lights. The judge asked about getting an electrician in but no-one had the heart to tell him he just wasn’t liked by Les. There was nothing an electrician could do about that.

Hello Simon

It look at the front on the courthouse it was designed the arched doorway as a mouth and two windows as an eye. The designer used architecture to mirror local native customs of the great spirit snake as in creator myths. perhaps know Nowra has a large indiginous culture in a way of the locals getting respect for the law? Perhaps this triggered an environment for spirits to gather?

Hello Simon

That is just one hypothesis.
