Accounts from the 1880’s suggested that the area suffered the unwanted attentions of a ghost who wanted to set fire to a farmers stack-yard during early mornings. A full account is detailed in, ‘The History of Halkyn Mountain’ by Bryn Ellis.
There are a number of narrow roads that wind around the area, and a ghost has been seen wandering them. He is described as “a misty figure, bluish grey in colour, wearing a short coat, walking ahead, head down, carrying a large bag under his arm”. Sightings in 1970 caused interest in the local paper. It is said that during the 19th century, a man employed to carry the miners’ wages was murdered as he made his way up the lane. Is it that man that haunted the stretch of road?
