History- The White Lady is said to have been been a female of the Dering family who died young. To prevent the dishonour of the grave, she was buried in seven lead coffins before sealed in an oaksarcophagus, buried in a white gown and a single red rose and laid to rest in the family vault in the south chapel of St. Nicholas' Church. She is said to have been seen roaming the churchyard for the unmarked grave of her still born child. She was also seen wondering the library of the Surrenden Dering, the family home which served as a boys school before burning down. Previous to its use as a family home, the building has also been used as a US Embassy between two world wars. This is when Mr Walter Winan is to have supposedly seen the White Lady, she appeared before him before vanishing through a panelled wall which might have linked the house with the church. SPOOK-TEA!
