Thread Name: Tanners Hatch - Finding old friends
Subject: RE: Tanners Harch - Finding old friends
Another little story regarding the witch at Tanners Hatch is that when there was a group of children staying at the Hostel, and there were often children staying there,be it Guides, Scouts, school parties etc. someone would start a story about a witch. The story usually went along the lines of a Witch who came to haunt the Hostel once a year(and that date just happened to be always the date those children were staying there) and banged on the door to be let in. Meanwhile someone would have slipped outside and on a sign from the story teller would bang hard on the door! Did those children jump!

There are lots more stories about Tanners but I will leave it at that for the moment.
