The Catteman Cometh [UPDATED]

Brockley's brushes with the uncanny pre-date Catman, vengeful snakes or UFOs.

Reader JPM kindly passed on this tale of the unexpected: A ghost spotted on the "lonely lane" between Ladywell and Brockley Rise and recorded in The Evening Post in 1894.

[Update: Transpontine has another good Brockley ghost story here]
