Quite why a spectral skeleton riding a a bike should be seen in the in lane outside the church is quite unclear,
The ghostly skeleton of Woodhorn might stand for the ghosts of Northumberland. It is utterly mysterious, bizarre, unexplained and yet it exists. Frightening and alarming though t it may be, the ghost goes about its own business without seeming to so much as notice the mere mortals that it frightens so much. And so the ghosts wander about Northumberland adding their own mystery to this most mysterious of counties.
