The 14th Century church is haunted by the a spirit known as the ‘blue lady’.

In 1976 Jenny Nichols photographed the church but was shocked to find that on developing the film, a blue shadowy figure was clearly in view. Locals believed the blue lady to be the ghost of Elizabeth Gilbert, wife of Henry Gilbert who was the Squire of Locko Park.

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