Once an old gypsy woman scratched a meagre existence by selling the watercress she gathered from the Pinnock Stream. She would habitually break the monotony of her labours by taking time off to indulge in her two main pleasures in life - smoking and drinking. She smoked a pipe and drank gin from a bottle carried tucked away in the safety of her basket. Frequent spillage's, due to the shakiness of old age or just general sloppiness, rendered her shawl highly inflammable. So much so that when a spark fell from her pipe on to the fabric it immediately set alight. Literally, in a flash her clothes were a mass of flames that completely engulfed her body - moments later she was dead. Her ghostly image has gradually faded over the years and later witnesses report seeing no more than a misty figure seated on the bridge. The Pinnock Bridge is at a low part of the village and air, trapped between the woods to the south and the foot of the North Downs, frequently makes these lower areas more prone to sudden mists. Driving through one of these sudden patches, one can be forgiven for 'seeing' a little more than one would normally expect.
