Burgedin Lock Cottage

The former lock keeper's cottage, now a waterway office, is reputedly haunted by the ghost of an early Welsh Princess named Eira. It is said that, "The cottage was built on the site of a very ancient building where the girl was said to have been walled up alive as punishment for running away with her lover. Her ghost has been seen near the brick-built fireplace in the old basement of the building." Objects are still said to be moved around regularly when no-one is present.

Update 12/11/21: The old owners of the building, the Canal and River Trust informed me, "... it appears that all it is are rumours. Many people have worked in and around the building and not experienced anything out of the ordinary. "
