There’s a few ghost stories from Thorpe-le-Soken which I think you’ll like to hear.
The police station on Landermere Road is rumoured to be haunted by an ex-copper.
An apparition of an officer in an old-fashioned uniform is often witnessed in the old station.
But that’s not the only haunting at the police station.
On quiet nights unexplained eerie whispering voices can be heard coming from the empty cells!
Staying on Landermere Road, in the 1930s, a couple of teenagers were waiting for a bus when they saw a huge phantom misty ball bounce down the road and pass straight through them and carry on down the road.
There’s an old cottage near the war memorial which has a paranormal tale to tell.
It’s said that the children who once lived there witnessed a spooky man suddenly appear in their bedroom.
The strange thing about this ghostly man was that his legs and arms were bound in chains!
One note of caution, if you’re ever driving along Tan Lane then have your wits about you.
Some startled drivers have narrowly missed a man walking along the lane only to be shaken when they see him vanish in front of their very eyes.
Sometimes he’s accompanied by a phantom lady… nobody really knows who these ghostly pair are!
