The Haunting of Tilty Abbey
Just a little drive from Thaxted is a small village called Tilty.
Tilty was once the location of an important medieval abbey.
Unfortunately, apart for a stone wall and a couple of overgrown ponds, there’s not too much of this grand medieval abbey left.
Except the ghost of a headless monk that is!
You see, back in 1215 King John’s soldiers ransack the abbey, the nearby church and killed a couple of monks for good measures.
It’s now believed that one of these poor monks haunts the abbey site in the form of a ghostly headless figure!
The strange thing is…
In the 1940’s a decapitated skeleton of a man was found in the grounds of the old abbey!
