Ilmington Hunter

In 'The Folklore Of Warwickshire' (1976) Roy Palmer mentions the following tale of an Ilmington man, who, 'with a pack of harriers became obsessed with hunting to the exclusion of everything else, including attendance at church. One night he went out to his hounds when they were howling, but they did not recognise him, and tore him to pieces. Ever since, his ghost has gone hunting on Christmas Eve and New Year's Day. If he sees anyone and gives a casual command, say, to open a gate, it must not be obeyed, or the person will fall into his power and be carried off for ever.'
