The White Lady of Corfe
Location: Corfe Castle, Corfe
Woman in White
Ghosts often haunt boundaries such as crossroads, gates and even bridges. One reason for this could be that a boundary is an in-between place, like midnight, 'The Witching Hour,' is between one day and another and as such these thresholds could serve as possible doorways to the world of the dead.
Corfe Castle is an impressive sight, but below the castle there is a bridge that is believed haunted by the headless ghost of a woman, dressed in a long white nightgown. She has been seen several times, the most recent on the 4th July 1967 by a local man, who was driving home at two o'clock in the morning, when the apparition drifted across the road in front of him.
