The Humber bridge nature reserve is in the east ridings of Yorkshire and is a scenic place where families spend the day. It's also the location of rumour and legend, like that of the headless man that stalks the woodland at night. The legend has a grain of truth as a motorcyclist was beaten to death there in 1963 though wasn't decapitated as the rumour suggests.
It isn't the only story about the park.
The phantom of a vanishing cyclist is said to be regularly seen. It is said a cyclist had died by plunging over the edge of the quarry and his ghost continues to replay the tragedy. Another urban legend is that the black mill, a windmill that stands in the park, was a safe place for witches in Victorian times which made it a spot for practising Satanists in the 1980s.
