3 Hauntings of Thaxted

A few years ago, a driver was heading into Thaxted along the Walden Road.
She slowed down to let an old elderly couple cross the road in front of her.
To her amazement, they simply vanished into thin air right in front of her eyes!
Another good ghost story from Thaxted concerns a local farmer.
At Gibbets Cross he witnessed the horrifying vision of a headless horseman trotting past him on a phantom white horse!
When you visit Thaxted you can’t help but to notice the cathedral like medieval church.
In fact, it’s often referred to as the Cathedral of Essex!
Well, close to the church there are some old alms house cottages built in the past to help home the poor and elderly of Thaxted.
And, it’s near these old cottages and in the churchyard that ghostly corpse lights have been witnessed eerily floating around in the dead of night.
