Whether or not there are any modern witnesses to supernatural activity in Norton Church, Sheffield, is unknown, although an interesting tale was recorded by the folklorist S. O. Addy concerning a strange event which took place in the last century: 'About 1840 the parish clerk of Norton and his apprentice went to play the organ, then standing in the west gallery of the church. The apprentice, whose face was turned towards the nave of the church, told the clerk that he could see a woman sitting alone in one of the high cloth-covered pews, and that he believed she was spectral. Thereupon they both rushed frantically down the steps, which were very tortuous and awkward. The clerk would never again play the organ in church in the dusk of evening.'
