Dean explained: “During the investigation I felt so much sadness and fear with him I think these were his last emotions.

The sound of galloping horses could be heard in the darkness

"At the field on Garden Lane we heard the galloping of the horses, it was dark and very quiet but the horses hooves were so clear we all heard them.”

The image of the horseman was taken by Dean who was actually visited by the spirit and was photographed in his back garden.

“In those days my back garden would have been fields. I heard a horse twice in a few minutes so I went outside and, me being me, snapped three photos and he appeared on the second.”

The group intends to carry out a final investigation into the Headless Horseman at three other locations at the end of the summer with Paul Bell joining them.
