Weird Norfolk Podcast

This week we tiptoe over the border to Suffolk to have a chat with local historian and paranormal expert, Ivan Bunn

To marry one woman accused of witchcraft is misfortunate, to marry two is plain suspicious.

A family hoping for a holiday packed with sun, sea and sandcastles in Great Yarmouth were surprised to find a guest had already taken up residence in the caravan they had been renting for four days - an invisible entity which made it perfectly clear it wanted them to leave.

Across the county, the sightings of the legendary big cat of Norfolk were once fairly common

This week we have an eyewitness account of the Grey Lady of Tombland. Bridget Pye joins us to share her strange encounter.

It's a lament said to travel across the centuries, a shriek that rips through time to tell the tale of a woman who loved and lost and whose spirit wanders in North Norfolk, restlessly searching for the baby murdered by her jealous husband.

The team are at Norwich Cathedral again and this week we have a chat about the Lantern Man of Thurlton. Siofra becomes starstruck as Budge the cat drops by.

Standing as a signpost to a village that longer bustles, in a rhododendron clearing in the woods, Mark Goldsworthy's timber carving shows the curious tale of the brave Bishop Beaver of Babingley.

She's been seen in the streets, houses and churches of Tombland, a grey lady who glides through walls and hides a terrible secret: when she was locked into a room with her plague victim parents, she ate their flesh to stay alive and met her end choking on their flesh.

This week we discuss the infamous red balloon ghost of Chapelfield Mall as well other hauntings in the shopping centre.

The ruins are spectacular and hint at a majesty long since claimed by time - but the broken walls of Bromholm Priory hide an even bigger secret: they once housed a holy relic said to be so powerful it could raise the dead.

It looked like any other council house in the row, a sturdily-built home, close to local amenities and perfect for a growing family - particularly one with an attendant poltergeist.

This week we discuss one of the most famous ghost pictures ever taken. The Brown Lady of Raynham Hall.

When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out contagion, the witching time of night is when the spectral woman appears, clad in red and seemingly tethered to the remains of a cross-stone which once towered over this lonely patch of Norfolk.

It's a heartrending story which for generations has acted as a warning to warring siblings.
