Spectral Group of Monks Crewing a Barge
Chanting hymns, a spectral group of monks crewing a barge are said to escort an open coffin containing a body of a woman as they head towards Ely. The body is that of Saint Withburga, taken from her grave at East Dereham by monks acting on the orders of the Abbot of Ely. The phantoms are only said to appear on misty evenings.
