SPOOKY sightings of three highwaymen wielding muskets and senses of an 'evil presence' have posed the question; 'dare you go down to Barr Beacon hill?'
Two super-natural experiences at the beauty spot near Sutton have heightened fears the area may be riddled with wandering evil spirits.
"A family had just stopped at a set of traffic lights at the bottom of Barr Beacon hill, when - on a grassy area nearby â€“ the mother suddenly saw three men seated on huge, chestnut horses," said West Midlands Ghost Club's John Conway.
The woman reported the men were all were all wearing cloaks, long boots, masks, hats and at least one of the men was carrying a long musket-style gun.
Mr Conway added: "She says that she was instantly mesmerised by the sight, said nothing to the other occupants of the car, but just watched.
"At this point, the man nearest the road turned his head and looked straight at her.
"Interestingly, she noted that the man's piercing eyes clearly seemed to indicate 'confusion' as he stared back at her."
The witness told the club she then 'came back to reality' - and when she told her husband about the highwaymen, they had disappeared, and she was met with derision.
The second spooky incident involved a woman and her partner, who were exploring the hill when they felt an overwhelming sense of evil.
Following the two sightings, the club is appealing for anybody else who may have experienced something similar at the hill over the years.
