In the grounds of Dower House in Bristol, the ruins of an obelisk mark the memory of Elizabeth Somerset, Duchess of Beaufort, who died in a riding accident in nearby Stoke Park while staying with her uncle, Norborne Berkeley, at Stoke Park in 1760.
On the same day in December every year, the ghost of the Duchess is said to be seen walking her estate, and occasionally the sound of hooves and a girl screaming can be heard at night.
