SHUCKLAND       Introduction        Alphabetical List of Locations
Location: Fornham St. Martin, SUFFOLK
Legend: "I, myself, collected a story from an elderly resident of Fornham St. Martin...concerning the ghost of a white dog said to appear at the bottom of Barton Hill, just off the A134 [c.TL854663.] This ghost was said to haunt the spot at midnight and was supposed to be connected with an accident that occurred there many years ago in which a woman was killed. (Presumably her spirit was supposed to have returned in the guise of an animal ghost, though my informant disagreed with this.)"
