Conifer Woodland, near Kate's Parlour, Sotterley
According to Hidden East Anglia LinkExternal link Kate's Parlour got its name as follows:

"Here is where a young parlour maid named Kate vanished from the 18th century Hall one day, and was said to have committed suicide, or been killed after a fight between two rival admirers. She is buried at this spot too, and they say that no matter how many times a hedge has been planted there, it will not 'take'. Kate, dressed in shimmering white, is said to haunt this part of Jay's Hill at midnight. A Hulver man cycling this way one night saw her, and was thrown off his bike and into the bushes. Horses have been known to tremble and halt here. During World War Two, soldiers stationed at the Hall and airmen based at nearby Ellough airfield often claimed to have seen Kate, sometimes flying eerily out of a window at the Hall, or in one of the bedrooms."
