In 1977, a lady from Morcott reported to the Rutland Local History Society that when she walked her dog down Green Lane, at Barrowden, the dog would never pass a certain spot without making a detour.
What upset the dog may have been a haunt, arising from events nearly a hundred years before. The didicoys (gypsies) used to camp on Redhill, on the lane leading to Turtle Bridge. One night in 1880, a terrible fight broke out among them, resulting in one being killed and buried under the hedge on the right side of the lane. No one knew anything about this until a didicoy told a villager sometime later, but the matter was never pursued.
