Chingford Mount Cemetary
Several ghosts of riders & voices have been seen and heard here.
Location: Old Church Road, Chingford
Description: There's plenty of stories of haunts here, including the ghostly galloping rider seen crossing this area of land and disembodied human footsteps have been heard on the paths, as have strange voices. It's thought that the ghost(s) could be part of Royal hunting expedition. Five years ago the local Guardian newspaper reported on former local woman Mavis Fisher's efforts to find out more about the ghostly apparitions in Friday Hill House, Simmons Lane, that haunted her childhood. Ms Fisher claimed a Stan Laurel lookalike, dressed in Edwardian costume and a bowler hat, and a weeping woman in a flowing white veil inhabited the old building.
