THE HAUNTED WALK
The haunted walk is the nickname given to Burton ghost walk because of the visitations of spirits.
On Halloween night on the walk an off duty policewoman fainted in Burton jail stating she had seen a ghost of a woman in white stand in front of her.The description was Alice Goodridge aka the Stapenhill witch she was tortured in this area around four hundred years before of what in modern times would of been the police.Was she trying to make a point.
A ghost of a little girl has been seen numerous times while on the walk always in the old Abbey buildings or by the river bank.It is said she drowned in the river and has not passed over and she is looking for her now dead grandfather.Who was supposed to be looking after her and fell asleep and let her drown.
