A Lost Bag of Gold - 3 April 1937 – East Burnham

Workmen who demolish the 900-yearold Malt House Yard cottages at East Burnham, Buckinghamshire, which have been condemned, may find a bag of gold. Legend says that a Mrs. Avenall forty years ago hid a bag of gold in one of them, and died without revealing the whereabouts of the treasure.

It is said that she swore she would guard the gold even after her death. A subsequent woman tenant says that she has heard strange noises, once felt a tap on the back, turned round, and saw an aged woman whom she recognised from a picture as Mrs. Avenall.
