The Haunting of the Town Pump
You’ll find the town pump structure located at the north end of Dorchester’s South Street (Cornhill).
The original town pump dated back to Roman times.
Today, a Grade II listed stone obelisk which dates back to 1784 marks to spot.
The area around the obelisk is said to be haunted by the ghost of a small boy.
Witnesses have described him as wearing dirty clothing, being bare-footed and carrying a wooden bucket.
It seems that he collects some water in his bucket and then disappears into thin air.
He’s only ever seen in broad daylight at a certain time of day with witnesses describing him as being very solid and real life looking.
