Description

When they made enquiries at the house, they were told that it was once the home of a young woman killed a few years earlier on Blue Bell Hill in a tragic car accident.

Shocked and distraught he stopped the car, he was sure he had killed her or at the very least caused her some serious injury.

The ghostly tale appears to be widespread throughout the world and though most published examples come from the U. Buckinghamshire has its fair share of ghosts, but none send shivers up your spine like a derelict haunted hospital like the Canadian Red Cross. Also, later that month and year, two motorists reported hitting a woman wearing a red scarf near the Robin Hood Lane junction at Bluebell Hill. If you’re looking for a creepy road to drive on this Halloween, Blue Bell Hill is definitely worth a visit.

Goodenough wrapped the girl in a blanket (or rug in some versions), carried her to the roadside and drove off to get help. Hundreds of cars were left at the side of the road, with some abandoned, leaving passengers including pregnant women and children stranded for hours.On another occasion, he witnessed the pedestrians again, walking across the road; however, a car drove straight through them this time!

But it also runs chillingly close to Pretoria Pit, the site of one of the most devastating mining disasters in Britain’s history. Later the driver decides to go to the address given to him and inquire about the strange girl, but after giving a description of his passenger he learns that although she did indeed once live at the house, the girl had died in a car crash months or even years before. Four years after the accident, a man on his way home to Rochester late at night, saw two pedestrians walking towards him, then suddenly disappear. These events show an affinity with the legendary Phantom Hitch-Hiker, suggesting that far from being mere vestiges of a superstitious folk tradition, they may reflect a genuine but complex phenomenon that continues to manifest in modern times and settings, and challenges our very notions of reality. Snaking its way across the bleak and beautiful West Pennine moors, the road takes in some of the most rugged countryside around, as well as several bridges.

When they arrived at the address, the two men were astonished to discover that their passenger was no longer in the car. Richard Studholme of the band Chicory Tip believed he was the victim of a cruel hoax when he picked up a young woman in 1973. I also remember that they had some poor sucker sitting in the car whilst it was struck by enormous bolts of electricity.

Coach driver Ian Sharpe, 56, said he saw a woman by the side of the carriageway just over a week before the anniversary of the car crash. This 30 mile long road is a main route from Rochester to Hawk Hurst and is home to Britain’s most famous “phantom hitchhiker” form of haunting. This account is from Crimes that Shocked the Medway Towns, based on newspaper reports by Chatham News in the early 1970s. According to legend, this could be a young Rochester maid named Emily Trigg, who was thought to have been murdered in 1916 while visiting her mother’s Blue Bell Hill home. Hinks claimed Emily was choked to death because a piece torn from an undergarment was found in the mouth of the skull.

Motorists who gave her a lift into the center of Maidstone described a young girl who chatted happily throughout the journey before vanishing completely from the moving car. In 1971, James Skene was driving home from work when a girl in her early 20s suddenly appeared in front of his car. The story goes that the Blue Bell Hill Ghost is all that is left of a woman who died in a tragic, fatal car accident sometime in 1965. Must admit, I always thought they acted as Faraday cages too (I remember seeing cars being tested in a lightning chamber, where they were subjected to repeated bolts - all that happened was that the rear windscreen wiper involuntarily twitched - could have been on Top Gear.
