No ghosts to disturb our sleep - only the RAF

Moored last night at The Ship at the junction. With Brandon Creek. In his guide to the river, Andrew Hunter Blair tells us that the neighbourhood is rich in folklore and legend. Tales are told of violent, macabre killings: soldiers, partly buried in the river banks and left to drown at the mercy of the rising tide; murderers slowly strangled as the falling tide left them hanging from a noose. Some say  their  ghosts can be seen on a misty evening..............

We slept well until the RAF interrupted our dreams at 0720!!
