In 1879, an account was published concerning a house only referred to as L_________h in the area of Llanvabon. The house in question was a farmhouse and had a “haunted room” found at the top of a winding, rickety staircase.
The room had no window, and something in there would blow out candles, and something unseen would brush by those in the room. It also had a “dark” atmosphere that proved unsettling for many people.
The main road from Ystrad Mynach to Caerphilly skirts around the village of Llanbradach. In or around 2001, two British Transport police officers were travelling south along the road in the direction of Caerphilly during the early hours of the morning when they caught sight of something unusual. A white figure moved across the opposite carriageway from their right, passed through the central reservation barrier and across the road in front of them before disappearing. It was only a few weeks previously that a fatal collision had occurred at that spot.
