Favourite haunt


I have written before about the haunted spot at Slines Oak Road, Warlingham but this is one of my favourite haunted sites of Surrey, so I went back recently to take an appropriate photograph.  I wrote previously that

according to the book Haunted Inns of Surrey, by Roger Lang, the Slines Oak Pond in Warlingham (on the B269) is haunted by a ghostly carriage. Travellers late at night are said to have seen the carriage rise up from the pond, all lit up and with passengers screaming at the windows. And it is believed that a report must exist somewhere of a ghastly accident at this spot years ago.

The pond is actually at the intersection of the B269 and Slines Oak Road, so my theory is that a carriage was travelling South-West along the B269 late one dark and stormy night. The driver was supposed to turn right into Slines Oak Road (a steep descent) but turned too soon and the carriage entered the pond. There were no known survivors, although some of the passengers’ bodies were never recovered. This is just a hypothesis based on all available “facts”, and I use the term “facts” in its loosest sense.
