Church End, Ravensden, Bedford, Bedfordshire

  • A lane running north of Ravensden is the setting for a regular with eerie encounter with a black-draped crone. The phantom of an elderly woman, observers describe, as wearing a long dress or cloak. Witnesses have said that her face reflects an expression of utter hatred. One never fails to startle those who encounter her. Some say she is the ghost of an elderly 17th century Ravensden witch who died of exposure on the roadside. Locals expelled her from this pub, when it was under a different name. Her ghost still appears in the bar from time to time, accompanied by a musty odour.
