An Enigmatic ghost near Worksop, Nottinghamshire

Five miles south east of Worksop stands a National Trust property with a ghost: Clumber Park. The magnificent, sweeping park of almost 4,000 acres is open daily, showing off over 120 types of tree, a Victorian Gothic chapel and, of course, the ghost.

She is seen most often near the magnificent serpentine lake, lingering on the balustraded bridge or flitting around the delightful Doric Temple. She is said to be a lady dressed in a long coat or cloak of grey or pale brown. She does not stay in sight for long and fades rapidly from view if anyone gets too close. There does not seem to be any particular story attached to her.
