The Addlestone footsteps

The Addlestone footstepsLocation - St. Paul's Church, Addlestone, SurreyIn October 1953, Police Constable Battams was on night duty in the School Lane, Church Road area and had glanced down the road towards Ottershaw. It was two o'clock in the morning and no-one was about. Suddenly he became aware of a gentle rustling in the trees opposite him in the church yard and then he heard footsteps moving slowly towards him. He flashed his torch in their direction but there was nothing to be seen that could account the steady noise approaching him. He moved out into School Lane in an attempt to locate the mysterious wanderer whose footsteps had quickened and then slowed and eventually stopped. Twenty years later an office cleaner walking home at the same time, heard an identical series of footsteps in the same locality.
