In 1792 the bodies of 3 headless Scottish tinkers were found in a peat bog on ‘Dead Man’s Hill’. The landlady of the old inn at Arkleside near Horsehouse in Nidderdale, where the three men had spent the night, was suspected of the crime along with her daughter. She was eventually acquitted for lack of evidence. But it is easy to imagine that Dead Mans Hill is haunted – it is reputed to be. And even more so when night comes down – or a storm brews. That is when you need to be off the hill and in the car – and away!
