Stapenhill means “steep hill ” in old Anglo saxon. A location so well thought of by the Anglo Saxons. It was their graveyard . So a place with a lot of potential for ghosts. Attracted those by stories of vampires and witches in this small once village we started to research.

This included asking my good friend psychic medium Ian Griffiths. To undertake a psychic walk with me prior to writing the script. This was to be a shock because although I knew that Stapenhill was very haunted. I did not realize how much.

AS well the ghost legend Alice Goodridge (the Stapenhill witch ) talked about on the Burton ghost walk. The legendary Drakelow vampire who according to local legend resting place is in Stapenhill. There is a lot more spirits in this location.Including a ghost ship, the blue lady,sad Victorian girl to name a few.
