Dering Wood - Screaming Woods

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Dering Wood - Screaming Woods

A colonel is said to be the most prominent haunter in this forest. He is reported to have hung himself and appears to be very lifelike. Other reports say that more than 50 people have died in this area and some of them still possibly remain. Often, ectoplasm or ghostly mist will come up in photographs.

  1. My wife and I have visited this site a few times before and we have had strange experiences. The first time we went there, our two dogs went berserk, and had to be put back in the car. We then stood at the gate to the car park, and I heard a noise like gravel being thrown, but my wife heard the sound of a galloping horse. Then we both heard a loud screaming.
