The ghost of Maude Carew on BBC Radio Suffolk

This afternoon I spoke to James Hazell of BBC Radio Suffolk for my regular ‘Spooky Suffolk’ segment (listen from time signature 2:15:30), which this week focussed on Bury St Edmunds’s most famous haunting: the alleged appearance of the ghost of Maude Carew in the Abbey Ruins every 24 February at 11pm. The story of Maude Carew gave rise to Bury’s legend of the Grey Lady but she was in fact a character made up by Margaretta Greene for an 1861 novella, The Secret Disclosed.
