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.
