DATCHWORTH has been named 'Hertfordshire's Most Haunted Village' in a new book on unexplained phenomena in the county.
The leafy village is name checked by ghost hunter Damien O'Dell, in his latest book Paranormal Hertfordshire.
The tome provides accounts of dozens of paranormal events which have taken place across Hertfordshire over the years and includes a number from Times Territory.
A number of sightings in Datchworth - including that of a headless woman in Hawkins Hall Lane and a spectral carriage near Datchworth Green - are documented, together with accounts of events in Tewin, Knebworth, Ayot St Lawrence and Lemsford.
