Daily Mirror articles had appeared.  It was on 13 June that we have what appears to be the first local account of the alleged hauntings: an article appearing, at considerable length, in the Suffolk and Essex Free Press.  Lastly, as we have seen, Price himself displayed a tendency to over-tell his story in his books.

The period of the Bull incumbencies is important, however, in that it demonstrates how the stage was set for what was to follow.  As we have seen, the eccentricities and beliefs of Harry Bull, coupled with what was probably the almost absolute authority of his position and that of his father in Barley and its neighbourhood, were sufficient foundation for the belief in the story of the nun and for the village tales of the haunting of the rectory.  Until 1929 these stories never spread (so far as we know) beyond Borley and its immediate vicinity.  Until 1929 Borley was no different from the many English country houses which possess a local ghost story.
