Pluckley Village is
renowned for its hauntings and mysteries. Although no longer monitored Pluckley Village is still
registered in the “Guinness Book of Records” for being Britain’s most haunted village, and with this in mind we
have decided to take you on a paranormal adventure that will take you to the edge of your seat!
There are many spirits and ghost that reside in the Village of Pluckley, some recognized as long dead members of
the local Dering family and others remain anonymous. The Dering family moved to the district
during the English Civil War when Charles ll was on the throne, he was impressed in their loyalty to the crown and
granted them an estate in Pluckley Village.
To this day there is
a haunting of what is said to be the beautiful lady Dering who was buried in a coffin with a red rose placed upon
her breast at the village church yard. She has been seen on numerous occasions and it is said
she is said to be carrying flowers as she still looks for her lost child.
The manor that was
occupied by the Dering family was called “Surrenden Dering,” which unfortunately burnt down in 1952, this is also
haunted by the Dering family, and yet another ghostly apparition of a white lady. The local pub
“The Black Horse Inn” is one of the locations we will be visiting and even this location has a legacy for the
Dering family influence. The pub has a slight connection with the family when Lord Dering
narrowly escaped death when he escaped from Parliamentary soldiers when he fled through a unique design of window
which Lord Dering copied the design at “Surrenden Dering.”
The Black Horse Inn
has its own ghosts, one of which is a menacing poltergeist, and opposite the Inn is the spirit which is said to be
that of a school master who hanged himself from a nearby tree from where he hung 200 years ago.
These woods are known to be one the most
haunted woods in England. The woods are located near to the village of Pluckley. The woods have
a long record of crime, murder and tragedy. Many people have reported to hear blood curdling screams coming
from the woods, hence the name was born!
Straight from a horror movie there have also been reports of phantom footsteps and sinister whispering emanating
from thick fog rolling from within the woods. It is believed that the woods are haunted by the
souls of the many people who have met their doom and are still seen today in the form of ghostly black shadows that
can be seen weaving their way through the undergrowth. In 1948 there was the Dering Woods
massacre, 20 corpses plied high were discovered by the police, and incidentally this case was quickly closed and
subsequently covered up.
