Moel Arthur

On the Clwydian Range of hills that border Flintshire and Denbighshire, you will find Moel Arthur. Moel Arthur is a heather-washed hill found among the Clwydin Range, supposedly named after the great King Arthur himself. It is from here that he ruled, and is possibly buried within a chamber named Cis Arthur. This lost tomb is said to house great treasures. A female apparition “robed in grey” was said to frequent the area, which is said to have led to the discovery of treasure. The look from the Grey Lady is said to be powerful enough to kill.

The Woman in Black

The road that leads to the Royal Oak Public House is reputedly haunted by a woman in a hooded black gown, possibly of Victorian clothing and that she walked with her head bowed. A number of residents and a police constable in the 1950’s reported encounters. Is it the ghost of a woman reportedly killed by horse or carriage whilst on her way to church during the Victorian era?
