Is the little village of Pluckley truly the most haunted village in England? We interview skeptical ghost hunter Hayley Stevens (The Spooktater) about the curious little town more famous for its dead than its living.

Pictured on the right is one of the many haunted buildings in Pluckley — St. Nicholas Church — said to be haunted by two ghosts of the same woman who died in the 1100s (or at least the ghosts appear to be the same person) who have come to be known as the “White Lady Dering” and the “Red Lady Dering.” (photo by Stephen Nunney [CC BY-SA 2.0], via Wikimedia Commons)
