In Castleford was a lady called Mary Panel who was hung for witch craft. Today. However, her ghosts is said to be leading a horse when seen. The road she is supposed to haunt is locally named Mary Panel but is mapped as Pannell Hill, they say if you see her someone close to you will die.

Legend has it that she was a herbalist and made a cream for a child who was ill. However, when the mother fed it to her child instead of rubbing it in her skin, the child died. Mary was then hung for the murder, or some said that she was burned to death for been a witch.
