About this deal

Suzanne was on her way back from her hen night when her Ford Cortina spun out of control on the A229 at Blue Bell Hill, colliding with a Jaguar heading the other way. Local legend has it the ghost of 22-year-old bride Suzanne Browne haunts the stretch of road that runs through the Kent countryside.

I have mentioned this elsewhere on the board, but thought it would be better to post here in the Ghosts section.

Today it is infamous for being one of the most haunted roads in England, with over 50 reported ghostly sightings in the past 80 years. I was so scared to look underneath, but I knelt down and looked straight through – there was nothing there. The Inn was around two hours from London by coach and had many wealthy travellers staying in the area. Personally i don't believe in ghosts bit the idea of the lady is linked to a very tragic historical event that happened in the town https:// www.

The fatal accident had often occurred on the very same date and in the exact spot where she was hitching a lift. Four years after the accident, a man on his way home to Rochester late at night saw two pedestrians walking towards him when they suddenly disappeared. I come from that area and knew about the ghost but didn’t tell her about the ghosts She pointed it out to me and got me to check her camera out. Whist in Kent recently I took the opportunity to visit the local beauty spot of Blue Bell Hill, which is located on the Pilgrim’s Way footpath, just south of Chatham.

The story goes that the Blue Bell Hill Ghost is all that is left of a woman who died in a tragic, fatal car accident sometime in 1965.

Suzanne’s crash has led to a spooky legacy and there have been over 50 reported named-witness sightings since the 1965 collision, with Blue Bell Hill becoming one of Kent's most enduring and notorious ghost stories. Four years after the accident, a man on his way home to Rochester late at night, saw two pedestrians walking towards him, then suddenly disappear. we would usually drive over to see them every weekend and as any of you with any local knowledge will know this mean't driving down the A229 Bluebell Hill for part of the route. A white lady, a blue lady and a smiling cavalier are just three of the many ghosts that haunt this spooky ruin.Shocked and distraught he stopped the car, he was sure he had killed her or at the very least caused her some serious injury.

In 1994 Ian recounted his experience on BBC TV programme Out of This World hosted by Sue Cook alongside Chris Dawkins, then 19, who also claimed he had an identical experience to Ian. Most of the reported sightings took place in the 1960s and 70s, but some of the last were reported in 1993. Then the police officer reveals that, like many before you, you may have encountered the ghost of Blue Bell Hill. He investigates reports of ghost sightings and believes Blue Bell Hill between Maidstone and Rochester is haunted. A stretch of dual carriageway between Maidstone and Rochester, in Kent, has been the site of numerous ghostly sightings over the years.This article described the apparition of a mysterious girl who was seen on a number of occasions hitching a lift outside the Lower Bell pub. He said the hauntings were causing motorists to crash in the stretch, which has more accidents than any other part of the 232 mile motorway. He and his brother Francesco owned the Inn for a time as well, and after falling in love with the same woman, decided to settle matters with a duel. It is based on a decades-old myth about a phantom woman, said to hitch a lift from passing drivers – near what was the Upper Bell Inn – and then disappear.
