All I know, or think I do, is that buggen is the Welsh for ghost

That's really interesting... in fact the 'Welsh' for 'Ghost' is in fact BWGAN (pronounced BU-GAN - for which read, 'BUGGEN' ). To be totally accurate, there are several words for 'ghost' in the welsh language (e.g. bwci, bwgan, fwci, fwgan, hysbryd, mwci, mwgan) - but the observation is close enough to convince me, for one!

I'd never thought as much - but it's fascinating. What came first, the ghost stories, or the road name?

The story I've heard is that a woman lived in Townfield (the house at the top of Buggen Lane) with two young children. One day, the children, without permission, ran out of the side gate (pictured above) and down to Parkgate, to go swimming (when it was a "seaside" resort).

The children drowned, and the ghost of Buggen Lane is actually that of the Mother, running, screaming down Buggen Lane in search of her lost children.

I'd be very interested to know if this story has any factual origin at all. Also, has anyone ever seen "her"???
