Burgh Island

The spectral figure of Tom Crocker has been seen walking on the shore, usually in August around the anniversary of his death (said to be either the 13th or 14th August). In the 14th century, a groups of pirates used the island as a base, and Crocker was their leader. One day, he and his men attacked an English ship rather than preying on foreign booty, and the authorities acted. The island was blockaded and armed men lined the nearby shores. Crocker was captured and hanged at the highest point on the island.
