Local tradition is that there are 2 ghosts associated with the Old Grammar School. A figure of a gaunt school boy, obviously hungry, has been seen in the upstairs of the building. This may reflect the poor conditions that some headmasters imposed on their students. There is also a record of the ghost of a small black boy sitting on the cobbles outside the school. In Georgian times, fashionable ladies often had a small black boy sit on the rear of their coaches. Did this boy fall off a coach and was he run over?
