An old schoolhouse in the town was reputedly the haunt of “a tall, well-made, middle-aged woman, wearing a long, black ‘Welsh Lady’ type of dress, with a small hat on the back of her dark, curly hair and a ribbon with a cameo round her neck.” This excellent detailed description was published in the Alyn and Deeside Observer in 1977. The description was said to fit that of a former occupant named Mrs Henning. Although rarely seen, her presence is often felt.
Although mainly closed like many such industries in Wales and the rest of the United Kingdom, part remained open in the 1990’s. The apparition of “a little Victorian lady” who was busy ironing haunted one of the sheds on the site.
