most haunted roads seem to only bring the haunting about when a vehicle is in motion, i.e a hitchiker....a horseman galopping along side a car. A person in the road, suddenly but no collision when "ran over"

I guess you could spend a while driving past the haunted stretch, video cameras rolling etc.
Would certainly be interesting.

I've got a report of an 'anniversary haunt' on a fairly local road. At least then you can pinpoint an exact date when the 'ghosts' are said to appear. Could be worth a go.

Urlay Nook Road just beyond Eaglescliffe - don't know that there is a date involved though - and you might get moved on by the Police out on the beat.

The West Auckland Horseman

or

The Harperley (Weardale) coach.

I think it's the Urlay Nook road one I was thinking about. Figure in 'period dress' if I recall.
Will have to check when I get home.

Perhaps a letter to the police advising them you intend to be in the area, that you are there for legit reasons and will be wearing high vis jackets. Might, just might assist there.
Of course, working near the highway would require a health and safety brief and probably mean no incursions into the live road.
But if its a sleepy village as Urlay Nook is, and not the actual A66, then I dont think there will be too many issues.

then again you could always set up a camera and just sit and talk - be there to make sure it doesn't get nicked and review the footage later.

I want to do a stint at Metheringham (Lincs) one day - but not this year

maybe the police might have a ghost story or two ;) ;)

I have heard by some of my church friends that a few weeks ago they where coming off A19 (Billingham turn off) and they seen a shadow of a man on the road, where very close to crashing and both the friends had seen this

Which Billingham turn off, the billingham bottoms one......long flat road, or the other one to Billingham motors?

I think a guy jumped off the bridge to his death from near the first turn off a few years ago.

very interesting about suicide at billingham, although i have never been to billingham before. i heard a tale somewhere (think it was down south) where a guy in a car thought he knocked over a cyclist only to find out there was nothing on the road with him.

I dont think he died in the fall......probably the 30 tonner that sprayed him across the carriageways is what did it.

Not sure if a car or something hit him......would have been around about 1994-95 iirc
