E-Bound’s 12 Ghosts of Xmas – Day #8

St John's Church, Boughton, Northamptonshire

There have been two churches in the parish of Boughton, both dedicated to St John. The remains of a 14th-century building can be seen on a site to the north of Boughton Road. In 1875 on December 24th a young farmer by the name of William Parker was walking home from the pub in Moulton, when he happened to venture past the ruined church. In the dark sitting on the low wall surrounding the graveyard the man saw a young woman with red hair wearing a red woollen cape. The young woman called William over and he proceeded to sit and chat to her for a while. She suggested that Parker should meet her in the grave yard in exactly one months’ time. The two parted with a kiss, but as she turned and walked towards the church gates, William noticed that her feet made no sound on the path.
