The Hauntings of RAF Little Walden
North of Saffron Walden there used to be a former Second World War airfield called RAF Little Walden.
It was opened in 1944 and was used by both the RAF and USAAF.
It closed in 1958 and today it’s just left as agricultural land.
There’s a couple of ghostly tales associated with this old airfield.
Where the old runway was once located terrified witnesses have seen a ball of fire rolling along the ground.
When they got a closer look they were horrified to discover that the ball of fire was in fact an apparition of an RAF pilot on fire!
The other spooky tale associated with RAF Little Walden happen on the B1052.
This B road runs through where the airfield was once located and literally in parts follows one of the old runways!
In November 1993 a woman was driving along the B1052 when suddenly a ghost of an American pilot manifested in the back of her car.
She later discovered that he was in fact the pilot of an ill-fated USAAF plane which crashed fifty years earlier at the very same spot where she had the ghostly encounter.
