    Around 1990 me & 3 friends saw a light appear down a roadway along side the old english country gardens. It was a lantern carried by an old looking man that moved about 200m in 3to4 seconds & he was right infront of us bright blinding light , we heard “GO” then the light & he just vanished. Out of hundreds of nights spent down there in 80s early 90s ( about 10yrs total )that is the only definate sghting other than whispers in the graveyard
