In 1976 Elizabeth McRae, a local bride-to-be, went missing.
She was last seen approaching a house, rumoured to be haunted, in the middle of Coombesbury Woods. This area now makes up the Northern part of Chepstow’s National Diving & Activity Centre (NDAC).
Her dress was spotted hanging in the woods, but a body was never found, despite a search party spending many weeks looking for her.
Over the years mirrors have mysteriously appeared in the in the woods. Locals say that it’s Elizabeth’s vanity seeking a new husband, and some say they have caught glimpses of the bride at night.
