Woughton on the Green is one of the oldest villages in Buckinghamshire, being mentioned in the Domesday Book, and occupied a prominent position on the banks of the River Ouzel. Remnants of past days remain, the Church being medieval and both Woughton House and the Swan Inn dating back centuries. All three of these buildings face The Green, itself a scheduled ancient monument, and it is here that the phantom of Woughton on the Green lurks.

The ghost in question is usually only glimpsed. Mounted on a dark horse, the man is dressed in dark clothes and wears a tricorn hat. Few see more than that, as the ghost rides out of sight behind a hedge or round a corner. Some people have got a better view, including one who saw the phantom in the mid-1980s. This witness described the man as being dressed in a cloak over a fancy waistcoat with thigh high top boots of black leather.

Clearly the phantom dates back to the 18th century, but who is he?

The locals at Woughton on the Green have few doubts. Their ghost is the spirit of none other than the famous highwayman Dick Turpin. Although the ghost is rarely seen clearly enough to be certain, the identification is more than likely. Watling Street, now better known as the A5, runs close to the village on its way from London to Chester. The rich merchants who used the road made easy pickings for men such as Turpin, and he is known to have held up more than one coach on Watling Street.
