Professor Brian Cox discusses ghosts on Lorraine in 2018
The area in the Quantock Hills in the southern English county of Somerset was named after the murder of Jane Walford by her husband John in 1789. The alleged phantom is said to be haunting an area known by locals as “Dead Woman’s Ditch” near Over Stowey.
Eager ghost-hunters Christine and Dave Thomas started examining paranormal activity in the area back in 2020.
Ms Thomas states she was shouted at and told to “f*** off” by the ”nasty, evil spirits”.
She claims her husband also picked up on the abusive invitation to leave.
The couple claims to have had other encounters there – with the ghost of a murderer from 1798.
A ‘woman in white’ ghost allegedly tells tourists to “f*** off”
The alleged phantom is said to be haunting an area known by locals as “Dead Woman’s Ditch”
Mr Thomas said: “There is definitely something there,
“My wife has experienced it for a long time.
“There are two types of voices.
“There’s the residual memories being replayed which people pick up on without being able to communicate with.
“Then there are voices you can interact with, which you can have an exchange with, which can answer questions.
“Not all, but some can be quite nasty, evil spirits.
“Not everybody is aware of ghosts.
“That’s because some people have weaker barriers than others and are more likely to come across one.”
The ‘grey woman’ ghost is also typically reported in many ‘haunted’ places
Many have reported similar spooky incidents elsewhere
Other locals have also reported spooky goings-on in the area.
One said: “When I was about 17 on my way home from work, driving along a cold road, I saw a bright white figure on the side of the road so I slowed down.
“It appeared to be a woman completely dressed in white, old-fashioned clothing.
“I couldn’t take my eyes off as I drove past.
“I couldn’t bring myself to turn around to have another look.
“I just drove home in complete shock.”
Another said: “I’ve seen what looks like a tall figure with a long dark coat on outside the pub, on the edge of the road.
“Checked back and no one there.”

Chillingham Castle is reported to be the most haunted castle in Britain
Multiple other locations around the UK are also rumoured to have paranormal phenomena happening.
According to reports, Chillingham Castle is one of the most haunted locations in the country.
Reports of Trip Advisor continually see words such as “spooky” and “haunted” appearing in reviews of guests who have dared spend the night at the Northumberland castle.
It is reputedly home to “The White Pantry Ghost”, a frail figure in white who has appeared begging for water, the longing for which, apparently, suggests poisoning.
Coming a close second in the “spooky” reviews count was Alnwick Castle, also in Northumberland.
Locals have stated they have seen the ghost of the Grey Lady who worked as a maid in the castle, along with the spooky sightings of the Alnwick Castle vampire, a tale of legend.
The vampire was so feared the locals worked together to stop him after terror and illness took over when the vampire moved among them.

The National Trust has at least 8 haunted woods on its website
With its dark past and tales of the Grey Lady and a vampire – a former deceased master of the castle – roaming the streets, it’s little surprise Alnwick Castle has the most reviews featuring the word “scary.”
The National Trust lists at least 8 “haunted” forests and woods on its website, with rumours of various ghosts patrolling the areas.
The ghost of Ann Boleyn’s father, Sir Thomas is said to roam the Blickling Estate Woods in Norfolk, as well as Ippikin, the ghost of a 13th-century highwayman in Wenlock Edge in Shropshire according to the trust.
When sociologists Dennis and Michele Waskul interviewed ghost experiencers for their 2016 book “Ghostly Encounters: The Hauntings of Everyday Life” they found “many participants were not sure they had encountered a ghost and remained uncertain such phenomena were even possible, simply because they did not see something that approximated the conventional image of a ghost.”
Instead, many respondents were simply convinced they had experienced something uncanny — something inexplicable, extraordinary, mysterious, or eerie.
