White Lady of Shooters Hill


In the years around 1830 the area surrounding the Shooters Hill and the Well Hall Road junction was said to be haunted by strange “unaccountable noises” and the apparition of a white lady. The haunting was thought be some to be connected to the skeleton of an unidentified female skeleton unearthed by a labourer on 10 June 1844. The woman had a long golden hair and a fractured skull. The skeleton was then said to have been buried in a nearby cemetery.

There has been a suggestion that this was an anniversary ghost that appeared on 24 July each year and also as far as I can tell, unfounded speculation that it may be linked to St Lewina who’s feast day falls on that date.

Well there seems to have been quite a few things happen in that area Dando, including a large cat sighting in 1963 and the Bull Public House was said to be haunted at one time.
