Marston Moretaine forest – Spooky Walk (Thu. 31/10/13)

Posted on Updated on

Join the Halloween walk!!
Britain is a place rich in folklore, myths and legends of great variety originating from its many historical periods; from the ghosts of Roman soldiers near York to the spectres of Spitfire pilots at some of our airfields. Cranfield and its surrounding villages all have a long history and their own local legends and sites of paranormal activity.
 
Halloween is an ancient tradition dating back thousands of years although its exact origins are disputed. Although different cultures practiced this tradition in different ways, it has always been associated with the supernatural; a time when the barriers between this world and the next become thin.
Misty Graveyard, Halloween
This Halloween, we will guide you to some of the local areas where ghosts have been spotted and talk about the local legends associated with them. We will also encourage our members to tell the ghost stories from their home countries.
