Members of Sutton St. Nicholas Women’s Institute in Herefordshire were enthralled by a talk on “The Mysterious Forest — Spooky tales from the Dean & Wye“.
The speaker chose from a treasure trove of ghostly tales. There are at least two extremely haunted buildings — Littledean or Dean Hall, and St. Briavel’s Castle — which provide many intriguing tales. There are pubs and inns which have ghostly guests, such as the Angel in Coleford and the Fountain in Parkend, there are ghosts associated with mines, ghosts that wander down from Naas Lane in Lydney to Lydney Harbour. There are friendly, energetic ghosts working down Clearwell Caves!
“Our members were very impressed with the tales you had to tell. We even talked about it after you left“, was the comment from the WI Secretary when she wrote a thank you email.
This talked is regularly booked well in advance for autumn meetings when organisations plan for a Halloween thrill. If you hurry, you may still be able to book it for your organisation.
