Fast Moving Old Lady

Location: Farnham (Surrey) - West Street
Type: Haunting Manifestation

Weather Dependent: Windy days


Location: Marston Moretaine (Bedfordshire) - General area
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Further Comments: During a Civil War skirmish, the cavaliers retreated into a tunnel that led from the church to the rectory. Rather than follow them in, roundhead troops sealed both ends of the tunnel. The trapped cavaliers slowly died and the last sounds heard were of the drummer boy beating his drum. His instrument is supposed to be still heard beating in the village on windy days.
