Blake Mere Pond

It is said that a mermaid was rescued from confinement by a sailor and released into the lake. He visited the mermaid every day but when he died, the mermaid became resentful and in death haunted the lake, where she would harm any visitors. A second legend is that the ghost is that of a young woman who was drowned here after she rejected a man named Joshua Linnet. In revenge, he accused her of being a witch and the townsfolk executed her. She vowed vengance on Joshua and his body was found three days later in the lake. The lady is still said to haunt the area.
