    Weird Norfolk: The Green Lady of Costessey Hall

    Weird Norfolk: The Green Lady of Costessey Hall

    Stacia and Siofra are back after an extended break. Unfortunately they can't meet in real life for weird chats so it's back to Zoom, as is very clear in the sound quality (Siofra sounds a bit like a robot).

    This week the ladies discuss one of Stacia's specialist subjects, the Green Lady of Costessey Hall. They learn all about the lost hall which once stood on what is now a golf course.
