Ghost of Sir Thomas Boleyn

The father of Lady Ann Boleyn. His ghost is believed to be doomed, annually, on a certain night in the year, to drive a coach drawn by four headless horses over a circuit of twelve bridges in the vicinity of Blickling Hall. Among these are Aylsham, Burgh, Oxnead, Buxton, Coltishall, the two Meyton bridges, Wroxham, and Bail Brigg. Others say that he is obliged to cross forty bridges to avoid the torment of the furies.
