Binham - Priory
Monk unknown, singing in 2010 and 2012, footsteps in 2012
Though not seen in recent years, a monk dressed in black once walked from the ruined priory to Walsingham, slightly over three miles cross-country. The ghost was blamed for the disappearance of a fiddler who tried to investigate the nearby tunnels. Singing or chanting has been heard at the rear of the structure, and fast moving footsteps heard crossing gravel, although the nearby path was tarmac. In 2008 a ghost hunting team had to leave the site after three members experienced discomfort.
Bircham Newton - Skies over Bircham Newton
This strange flying machine passed overhead here.
Bircham Newton - Wartime Airfield (owned by Construction Industry Training Board)
Many ghosts are said to exist here, mostly coming into being during the Second World War. During the war, a car full of 'merry' (ie, very drunk) pilots crashed into a hangar, killing the driver and all the passengers; the scene is now re-enacted at irregular periods. Another group of ghosts were called into being when a bomber that crashed on the landing strip lost three of its crew - they now return to play their favourite racquet game! The sound of a squash ball echoing in the deserted building, and that of soft footfalls are more common than seeing the airmen, though one man in officer's clothing has been seen a few times.
Blakeney - Guildhall
A secret tunnel was said to connect the Guildhall with a friary which once stood close to the church. A fiddler volunteered to explore the tunnel and wandered in, playing his instrument as he walked. Eventually the fiddling could no longer be heard, and the explorer was never seen again.

Blakeney Marshes, Norfolk
Blakeney - Marshes in the area
Children were once told that these creatures, resembling abnormal spiders with very long legs, would attack anyone who strayed into the marshland. Another account is much kinder, with Hytersprites described as more like traditional fairies with sandy coloured skin and green eyes, who could take the form of Sand Martins and would save lost children.
Blickling - Blickling Hall
19 May (Reoccurring)
To mark the anniversary of her death, a coach pulled by four headless horses pulls up on the driveway, with a decapitated Anne on a seat, her head in her lap. After Anne's headless white ghost arrives, it is said then to climb out, before inspecting each room of the Hall (the place of her birth and childhood). On the same date, Sir Thomas Boleyn is said to drive a team of headless horses in this area, cursed to cross twelve Norfolk bridges (including those at Aylsham, Coltishall and Wroxham).

Breckles - Breckles Hall
The father of Anne Boleyn is said to be cursed with driving his coach over forty (or eleven) Norfolk bridges. One of the passing points is Breckles Hall, where the spectre once scared a poacher to death (another version states that the poacher was taken by the Devil because of his constant law breaking). Locals say that anyone who views the coach is dragged down to hell.
Briningham - Mission Hall Cottage
10.30pm, irregular, (reoccurring)
The sounds of horse hooves have been heard moving around the house at night - at one time the property was a stable. The sitting room has experienced sharp falls in temperature, accompanied by strange smells.
Briston - John H Strachey Public House
The ghost here, possibly that of an old man, is heard walking along the landing and opening the bar door.
Brockdish - Brockdish Hall
The hall is one of several sites which is supposedly the site of the legend of the Mistletoe Bough - a bride who died on her wedding day after being locked in a chest during a game of hide and seek was found many years later in skeletal form.

Local legend once said a secret tunnel ran between these two sites, with golden gates set within.
