The White Lady
The White Lady
The mysterious white lady of North Ormsby [TF281929] ... a lifesized statue of a woman in a classical style that has been here for hundreds of years, no-one really knows how or why she came to be here, but there are countless folk tales about her. Some say it's Roman, others say 18th century in the Greek style, the site reputedly marks the spot where a woman was once killed whilst out hunting. The valley is rich in history and she stands on the site of a Gilbertine Priory founded in 1184 and close to the deserted medieval village of North Ormsby. Whatever the truth, she has become the patroness of this beautiful valley. The White Lady is on private land and permission should be sought from the owners at Abbey Farm first.
