Dickie’s skull appears to be part of the “screaming skull” events that are recounted throughout history. This one takes place in Tunstead, Milton, Derbyshire. Tunstead Farm is now colloquially known as Dickie’s Farm to many from the 1700’s onwards.

There are several legends about who he is, but there is one thing for sure. the hauntings reported at the farm are associated with the skull there.

Any strangers on the land would soon be noticed when the residents would hear furious knocking on the door that would see no one outside, it would appear Dickie was a good guard dog as well!

Unfortunately he did deter farm labourers too as they were sent away due to the noises. However Dickie wasn’t just there to scare people away. when the farm animals were in need of aid he would notify them of that too with his rappings and knockings.

Dickie was once stolen, he was traced to Cheshire. The villains were eager to hand him over as well, saying that the noises had been unbearable.

In 1988 Dickie was reported as lost, no doubt if he wants to come home he will make sure he is heard from.
