Peddars Lane. Stanbridge

The Phantom of Peddars Lane Stanbridge.

Driving down Peddars Lane at around 9pm one evening, Roy Fulton spotted a hitchhiker thumbing for a lift. The hitchhiker was about 20, and wearing dark trousers and a jumper.

The man opened the door of the car and got in the vehicle without saying a word. When Fulton asked him where he was going the man didn’t reply, instead he raised his arm and pointed up the road. The car continued down the road and Roy decided to offer his passenger a cigarette, but upon turning the man had vanished. Fulton reported the incident at the local police station, and said that the hitchhiker had seemed very real, and solid, but had a very pale completion.

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

    This is one of the better ghost stories I’ve ever heard. If you want to see a video of Roy telling it, it’s on YouTube. I think Bedfordshire is in the subject line, phantom or hitchhiker, something like that. Great story.

      I was in the Glider that evening. I remember Roy coming in. Totally & very visibly shaken…and shaking! More than just a story. This was a real event.

Got something to say? Go for it!
