The Ash-Tree

The Ash-Tree is a 1904 ghost story by M.R. James. It can be read online.

StrangeAmusements.com says,
What makes this story work so well is the fact that so much of the horror is simply implied and left for you to wonder about as you keep turning the pages, the mystery and the suspense intensifying as you go.
It was adapted in 1975 by the BBC for its series A Ghost Story for Christmas. The adaptation starred Edward Petherbridge (whom we loved as Lord Peter Wimsey in the BBC series) and Preston Lockwood. You can watch it online via youtube:
