Treasure and Ghosts in Dallinghoo, Suffolk

A legend has it that under a certain gatepost in Dallinghoo lies a hidden treasure. The ghost of the former owner also haunts the site to protect his hoard - even the efforts of twelve clergymen failed to send him on his way!

And if you are a treasure hunter, forget dreams of riches! No-one can remember where the gatepost stood!

Another ghost also haunts the area. A widow by the name of Shawe cut her throat and was later seen haunting the lanes around the village. For some reason, she was always seen without her feet!

Or could her spirit simply be a recording and she's walking on a previous ground level which is now hidden from view?
