The police, a local MP and the vicar were all there to witness the extraordinary happenings that continued to plague the household. The Black Monk lived some time in the sixteenth century in and around the area the East Drive estate stands today.

Freezing temperatures in specific rooms, objects been thrown by invisible forces, slashed photographs, loud crashing sounds, objects vanish to then reappear in another location were other “classic” poltergeists observed.
The poem strengthens Robin Hood's connections to Pontefract because it speaks of the outlaw's death and clearly states that the outlaw died at 'Kirkby'.Number 30 was on a hill on the estate, a place where it was later discovered that hundreds of years earlier many people had gone to their death’s on gallows that once stood there.
