The Ship Inn in Dymchurch, dating back to 16th Century, is apparently plagued by a far older spirit, that of young girl. The story has it that the girl was jilted by her lover on their wedding day. In despair, she ran home to the Ship Inn and killed herself in her room, now the attic. The ghost is reportedly heard and on seen regularly, with an apparition walking the corridors and stairs.
There are apparently two mounds in the vicinity of Jury’s Gap, Camber, which contain the remains of a Danish army that attacked the area in the first millennium. It is known that a Danish Army invaded England via the Romney Marshes in 892AD and there stories and evidence relating to battles that took place during this invasion all over the Marshes (such as that detailing how the Rype in Lydd was given to the town as a reward for bravery by the Barons of Lydd during the battle) so this particular legend may be more than just a story to frighten children.
Strange sightings are seen at George Inn in Lydd and the New Inn, New Romney in particular. The ghost of a young girl found hanging at the New Inn in the 1700s is reported to regularly walk its rooms and corridors with many people staying at the George have reported strange sounds and sights during their stay. There is also a tale that at certain times of day the roar of propeller engines from a German bomber shot down during the Battle of Britain can be heard across the Marsh.
