A strange tale of a vampiric encounter comes from the 1100’s, once the lord of the estate it lived underneath it and at night it would emerge to attack villagers.

It was also an area with an outbreak of plague at the time, so it could be that the legend could partly be attributed to the rise of the creature in the face of the deaths.

The result of this was the villagers dug up the monster, taking it from its shallow grave and burning it to end its curse. This was also a site used for the filming of the ever popular Harry Potter.
