Gill Lane at the junction with Henshaw Lane, the old Church of England School which was built in 1847, it is now the premises of a car spares business (2021).

This is the building which is supposedly haunted, at some time in the past a horse was pulling a cart load of barrels down the lane when it bolted. The driver was unseated as the cart collided with the corner of the building and thrown through a window, he died.

After this tragic accident the window was boarded up but later was opened up again when the premises were used by a sheet metal company.
It was then that odd things began to happen; objects were thrown into the air and furniture moved around, people were so convinced that the building was haunted that the local vicar was summoned to perform an exorcism!
