Penryn, Cornwall, England

Market Street, Penryn

The Phantom Coach and Horses

Just before Christmas, the area is said to be the haunt of a phantom coach drawn by headless horses. Some people believe that you must not look at it, because failure to avert your eyes will allow the apparition to “spirit you away”!
