The Hauntings of Fornham Park

The old entrance to Fornham Park near the roundabout just north of the village of Fornham St Genevieve is said to be haunted by Red Hannah.

Local legend says that this ghostly lady would suddenly appear to the naughty children of the local village scaring them half to death!

Her favourite time and location to appear to the poor children was just after dusk and right next to the park gates.

Red Hannah isn’t the only spectre to haunt the area near the roundabout.

One late evening in 1946, two local men were walking towards this area when they heard the sound of a motorbike roaring along the road and crashing nearby.

Concerned about the rider, they rushed to the spot where they thought the motorbike had crashed only to find no evidence what so ever of any crash or motorbike!

They were later shocked to discover that a young motorcyclist had been tragically killed when his motorbike had crashed at the very same spot a year earlier.
