No, Rich. It's the other side of Harrogate Road. Pass the Royalty on your right, turn right at the T junction above the Chevin, go straight through the new lights at Harrogate road, and the lay-by is on the right past High Trees garden centre, but before None-Go-By farm (down the hill.) There's a gate and a style, I think, and it's opposite a conifer plantation. If you reach the caravan park at the bottom, you've gone too far. I've never parked there since!

I wonder whether we should have a "Haunted Places" thread to complement the houses and pubs ones and allow for people seeing things in parks, fields etc?

Which charity shop? There's loads!
Opposite the clock on Kirkgate, there's a large 3 storey, 5 bay house (now shops) built in seventeen something-or-other which I'm told is haunted. A figure is supposed to appear sitting in the large central mullioned window looking up the street towards The Chevin. The original front door surround was moved to a building on Boroughgate (where it still is) when the house was converted to shops, so if the chap is searching for his old front door, he's looking in the wrong direction!

What battle was near boggart hill?


The battle of Boggart Hill drive of course? Dont you know nutting?

The battle refered to is the one over at Cock Beck which ran red with the blood of the fallen. 600 and odd BC or whatever.

I was brought up on BHD and the Boggart supposedly walked down from the top of the hill to........

Well I dunno. The legend was set out in a display in the Gate Pub which I never went to see because going in the gate was scarier than the Boggart.

TBF to the ghost writers on here I do recall one or two neighbours with their own stories about early one morning.......

Not a dark and stormy night, then.......

Rich - the British Heart Foundation shop is nearly opposite the house I mentioned.
