Haunted Village in Kent England

Posted on September 25, 2010

Pluckley is a small village in Kent, England. It is reportedly the most haunted place in England. I am a keen ghost hunter so I’ve spent many nights down there, armed with my trusty video camera and here’s what happened the first night…

Myself a group of friends drove down to Pluckley, we arrived approximately 11 pm. Pluckley is an extremely small village and really consists of one pub, a church, a small shop, butchers, a school and the rest are houses. There are 2 ‘main’ roads which run through Pluckley, one which goes down to ‘the screaming woods’ (I’ll explain that one later) and the other which travels through the heart of Pluckley down to the next village which is approx 5 miles away. Although I refer to these as main roads, they are in fact just country lanes.

Anyway, we arrived at Pluckley and parked in the black horse pub car park which is situated next to St. Nicholas church and its graveyard. The pub was shut for the night so we decided the first thing to do would be to go round the graveyard. We were a mixed group and decided that it would be best if the boys went at the back and the girls at the front.

The graveyard itself goes around the church in a triangle shape complete with a footpath. At the very far end is a gate. Whilst walking towards the far end my friend began to recount tales of a local myth that if you engage in a sance whilst in front of the gate you can hear a dog growling. As boys will be boys, they decided that they would do this, but to no avail and we decided to debunk that myth.

As we walked away from the gate I was situated in the middle of the group and about halfway down I heard one of the boys behind me say “o!”, as I turned around I saw at the edge of the graveyard a woman standing there. She was dressed in white, although her clothes were drabby and dirty and she was sickly pale, her face was contorted and I can only describe the skin as looking as though she had been in a fire and had major skin graphs. At that point I felt a hand push me in the back and I nearly toppled over! Then everyone started to scream and run towards the gate in front which allows you to exit the graveyard back into the pub car park.

Once in the car park the boys were shouting at each other “did you see it? did you see it?!” to which I confirmed to them that I saw the woman. I then asked who had pushed me in my back to which they all stared at me with blank faces. Then one of my friends said to me…

“No one pushed you in the back, you turned around and started screaming then just started running! It was then that we turned around and saw the woman standing there!”

I then told them that wasn’t true because I heard one of them swear and that’s when I turned around and that I only started running once everyone else did. To which they informed me that no one said a word and that I started running WAY before anyone else did and that I’d been standing in the car park for a good couple of minutes before they caught up with me.

Has this happened to anyone else? How could I have experienced something completely different to everyone else? Would appreciate your thoughts on this.

But that was just the beginning of what happened in Pluckley. I’ll post more later.

    such a sight probably took your memory. i’m sure you felt the push and one of your friends did say something but they don’t remember! sounds like the poor woman died horribly. i don’t know why she would appear to you, i guess some spirits don’t like there resting place disturbed in the middle of the night! scary experience!

  2. The Nate says:

    pretty scary i’ll give you that, well i really dont know what to say, I think possibly the “ghost” messed with your mind and somehow made you delousional to make you think you ran before them, i dont know why in the world she would do that but i dunno, maybe it could of been the other way around, maybe she made your friends delusional to make it look like you ran first which would be just as pointless as making you delusional, so, i dunno???? But maybe the reality of it was that it was a prankster, but i dunno about the pushing, so lets say it was a ghost then why wouldnt she just make it visible to your friends that she pushed you???? well i dunno but all i know is next time you go there bring a camera and video recorder most of all!!! That will settle if ghosts are real or not right there.

    Good story, but what I dont understand is if you are a ghost hunter, why not take a camra of camcorder? maybe then more people will believe you. Your story is very interesting though and I would like to read more.

      this was our first trip to Pluckley, when we were all still a bit skeptical about ghosts. It was this incident which prompted us to go back and take the camera. So I do have evidence but it’s for other experiences which i’m going to post soon :) x

    Hey cookie,
    I have to write a news story for Halloween and as I will be visiting Kent this weekend I thought I might find something there. Do you live there? What do you think i can write about?
    Unfortunately I cannot Pluckley or somewhere else, so it has to be a local thing..
    Thanks so much, its ok if you can’t help:)
