Whitby Abbey

According to legend, St Hilda, who was the abbess in the 7th century, appears in a glow in the window at night time. The dark apparition of a woman in 18th or 19th century garb has been seen, obviously in distress as she is "wringing her hands" and shaking her head. Faint singing has also been heard in the hours before dawn on January 6th. There are other stories, including a pair of treasure hunters in the abbey grounds, who were surprised by a headless figure in white.
