St Mary the Virgin Church

One of the phantoms here is claimed to be Dick Turpin who has been spotted in the graveyard where his reputed uncle Thomas is buried. The second phantom is a grey lady, who is said to wander "aimlessly" looking for her husband who died soon after they were married. Similarly, the third phantom also seeks a lost loved one, but is somewhat more sinister. It is a skeleton pushing a cart with a coffin on it; he is searching for his wife whose body was stolen by grave robbers.
