The following report was sent into us in January 2008.
"I was shopping for antiques at the Southworks antiques market. The building itself is an old textiles factory. I was looking into a stall filled with antiques when an older woman dressed in a matching red gabardine coat and hat crossed my path so close to me that I had to step backwards to avoid colliding with her. I looked behind me to see where I was stepping and when I looked back she was gone.Her perfume permeated the air.I looked around to see where this rude old lady had went only to realize that I was alone.
I found my wife and asked her if the woman had passed by her (as there was nowhere else to go ) and she replied that she had not seen anyone matching her description . I asked the staff if they had seen anyone in the store who may have fit the description and they said no. I feel the woman was tied to some object there."
Our thanks to the witness for sharing this experience with us.
"Southworks Outlet Mall is named after the South Works of Babcock & Wilcox. Dumfries Foundry, is the forerunner of B & W, and was founded in 1844 by James Andrews and James Crombie. The foundry was located on a site which is commonly thought to be where the Cambridge Bus Depot is now located. In 1847 Dumfries Foundry moved to the Grand Avenue site."
A complete history of this site can be found on their official website here:
