Queen’s Head, Harston

History of the Queen's Head

Enid Porter in Cambridgeshire Customs and Folklore writes:

Members of the Harston Women’s Institute recorded in 1935 the existence of the ghost of the White Lady who walked from the Queen’s Head along to Mill Road. The ghost of a woman was said by these same members to have been seen in the past throwing herself into the river near the bridge towards Haslingfield.
