  1. I studied at Dartington Hall from 1969 to 1970. The Lady in White never materialised but I did see another lady. I was in digs at Follaton and had to walk down the front drive on some very dark nights. Very often we would wait at the school until several students could walk together as there were no street lights then. So there were about a dozen of us who set out one night down the long Front Drive. We had walked quite a long way and were getting close to the iron gates. We saw a short cloaked female person coming towards us on the opposite side of the road. She was very odd looking as she walked with overly large strides and very quickly. She was obviously talking to herself. I thought it was a drama student perhaps rehearing her line and we just walked on. Two minutes later she came again. We all panicked and ran for the gates. There is really no way she could have walked all the way around both front and back drives and no cars passed us on the road.
    I can see every detail again as I write this and 12 people can’t all be wrong!

  2. Remember coming off roundabout dartington passing the petrol station on the left heading back home to Plymouth .. Seen the strangest human shape figure gently floating across the road couldn’t see legs .. Hadn’t been on the beer .. Wasn’t hungover.. Nor daydreaming.. The only car was the one I was passenger in .. No trickery of other car headlights.. My female friend driving had also seen this odd human shape glide across the road then disappear though a hedgerow.. We both believe we seen a ghost .. Shook us both up and couldn’t wait to get out of lanes and on to bypass.. This was around 1020 pm October 2016..
