Phantom Coach of Bell Lane, Enfield London - Hanging Judge jeffery's

Does the spectral coach of evil Judge Jeffrey’s recount its journey through Bell Lane in Enfield London?

Popular local story tells of the Phantom Coach of Enfield, which by all accounts, the ghostly coach travels silently down bell lane and suddenly vanishes into thin air, whilst being drawn by a team of ghostly black horses.

If the reports are to be considered factual, the coach belonged to the evil Judge Jeffrey’s, also known at the time as ‘Hanging Judge Jeffrey’s’ circa 1600’s who, it’s also speculated rides inside the ghostly coach. Interestingly enough Judge Jeffrey’s is known as Hanging Judge Jeffrey’s because of the punishment of death by hanging, he saw fit to hand out at the trials of the supporters of the Duke of Monmouth.

Seen a couple of times in the twentieth century, the ghostly passengers are said to be quite clear and distinct. A 14 year old boy who was cycling down Bell Lane during the 1940’s has said to have passed through the apparition.

The reports of the coach, however, have been commonplace for many years and it would appear sightings of it are usually observed at dusk or at night.

Loves a good ghost story, especially whilst sat in front of an open log fire on a cold and dark winters night.
