A31 - Hogs Back, Guildford bound. 1 mile Northeast of Tongham junction
Unknown Ghost Type
08 January 2007, 22:40h, and 1960s (around 03:00h)
Travelling home in 2007, a driver watched a horse drawn box carriage cross the road around 100 metres in front of him. The witness reported that he could not make out too many details as it was raining hard, though he was able to see a dim lantern towards the front of the carriage. As the driver reached the spot where he had seen the vehicle pass, he realised there was no side road where the coach and horses could have crossed. Another witness in the 1960s spotted a female figure with long hair, wearing a white dress, standing by the roadside. The witness stopped to see if she was lost or needed a lift, but she had vanished. Mentioning the encounter to a work colleague the following day, the colleague described the figure which was encountered and said the area was haunted.
A324 - Road heading towards Pirbright
Driving towards Pirbright in a convertible, this witness passed an old fashioned bus as it headed in the opposite direction. However, no sound came from the bus, and there was no smell of exhaust or wind turbulence generated as their paths crossed. The driver of the convertible also realised that his headlights did not reflect off the bus, which he later identified as 1920's Dennis J Type of the Aldershot and District bus company.
Ash - Ash Rectory
The rector wrote that he had been awoken by the sounds of galloping and opened his eyes just in time to see a phantom coach and a team of horses pass through his bedroom.

Ash Green - Ash Manor
This figure that appeared in one of the bedrooms looked real, though when a witness tried to grab him, he passed through the figure. Described as short, and looking like a tramp, the ghost had what appeared to be a slashed throat. The nearby fields are haunted by the sounds of galloping horses.
