1 The Brown Lady of Raynham Hall is one of Norfolk’s most famous ghosts. She’s the spirit of Dorothy Walpole, supposed to have been walled up alive by her evil husband – so came back to haunt him in revenge…

2 The Phantom Cat of Lynford Hall is the ghost of a puss killed by a nasty former hall owner who really, really hated felines… the rotter

3 From cats to dogs… Black Shuck is the Norfolk ‘devil dog’ who makes a habit of creeping up on unwary travellers… so best practise your running!

4 Over at Letton, near Dereham, it’s not a devil dog you have to worry about seeing. Instead, it’s a headless donkey...queens head image

5 Queen Anne Boleyn lost her head when she displeased hubby King Henry VIII. And her ghost is said to turn up once a year at Blickling Hall in a coach and horses. Carrying her head under her arm, of course…

6 Wicked Colonel Sedley is condemned to ride round one of the Broads every year on December 31 because of his nasty misdeeds…

7 Mr Shaw of Gateley had a surprise visit one night in 1706 from his friend Mr Naylor. Why the surprise? Well, Mr Naylor had been DEAD for four years…

8 In 1966, 23 viewers phoned in to Anglia Television saying that during a piece about Old Morley Hall they could see a ghostly monk in the background…

9 The White Lady of Worstead appears in the church every Christmas Eve. One year a brave (and stupid) villager decided to stay overnight to see her… and died of terror!

10 Near Thetford you need to keep your eyes open for a very strange ghost… a bunny with flaming eyes…
