Flint Castle

Flint Bus Depot

Sources report that the Flint Bus Depot has not one, but two ghosts! The first is described as “a girl in a long dress with a shawl over her head”, with the second being an “indistinct” figure. According to research, the two figures have been reported for some 200 years. They are supposedly tragic lovers who committed suicide together.

A Destructive Presence

A “destructive presence” is said to haunt a dip along the road from Connah’s Quay and Flint. The dip is called “Edmund’s Hollow” after a former Excise Officer, and is where a drowned dairymaid was hauled ashore. Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians alike have reported unseen hands tugging at the wheel or pushing them - which have the obviously dangerous consequences on a busy road. Is the dairymaid responsible for such dangerous deeds?
