Tales from Mildenhall, Suffolk

Oliver Cromwell

Oliver Cromwell, who became Lord Protector in 1653, was said to have buried chests containing treasure in a group of ancient barrows, known as the Three Hills. Despite several attempts to locate the hoard, the chests remain hidden.

RAF Mildenhall is said to be haunted by the ghost of an American airman. In 1969, a homesick sergeant got drunk and stole a C-130 cargo plane. He crashed in the ocean after supposedly trying to make it back to the USA. His body was never found.

His ghost reportedly wanders the parking area where he took off on his last flight.


  1. You need to check out the oldest lodging facility at Mildenhall, Building 464 (Middleton Hall).. Interesting to say the least!
