Thundridge Church in Hertfordshire, some times known as Cold Christmas Church dates back to 1086, it was a private church sited on the local estate. In 1978 a terrified local woman reported a ghost army marching out of the church.
In 1853 a new Parish Church was built in Thundridge and much of the old church materials were used all apart from the 15th Century Tower which was left intact along with the graveyard. As with St Mary's Church in Clop hill in Bedfordshire there have been many rumours of the Church being built on a North to South alignment instead of East to West.
Locals have reported witchcraft, vandalism and desecration at the church. In 1978 a terrified local woman reported a ghost army marching out of the church. According to her report the ghost army let out a blood-curdling roar and marched straight through the poor woman.
A common report is that of a ghostly growl that echoes out from the tower. Reports of the noise became so frequent that in January 2009 the local East Herts Herald sent a camera crew and journalist to investigate. A ghostly figure in a black robe has been seen in the grave yard moving silently between the tombs.
At Halloween the police are reported to close the lane, there are also stories of someone failing to their death from the old staircase that now leads directly out on to a floorless room.
