Since the Paranormal Chronicles published three terrifying testimonials of  paranormal activity on a local road on the 22nd February (link at end of this article) we have been inundated with dozens of reports and accounts of similar and even stranger happenings. The article has since been picked up by the Wales online, BBC Wales, the south wales evening post and also locally in the Western Telegraph and Milford Mercury. With the reports spreading fast and more and more people coming forward with their experience we have to ponder just what is happening on the A4076 that connects Milford Haven and Haverfordwest?

The south Wales evening post have suggested that the A4076 be the most haunted road in the U.K and since we at the Paranormal Chronicles broke the story dozens of investigators and journalists have waded in with their opinions. Some locals have begun to blame the ongoing roadworks for disturbing some metaphysical presence that is causing the events while others say it is nothing more than over active imaginations.

Over 20,000 of you read the Paranormal chronicles report in 48 hours and many sharing their own terrifying and confounding experiences. Some local Drivers have been driving the road relentlessly hoping to catch a glimpse of the roadside ghoul while others have been cautious travelling back and forth in an effort to avoid anything that could create a perilous situation. Parents have complained that their children have had sleepless nights due to discussing the haunting at school and with their friends, but is there anything to be concerned about?

Simon Lepetit, 30, from Haverfordwest said that the roadside haunting has been a myth deeply interwoven into the county’s history for years with reports of a shadowy and strange roadside figure just outside Steynton. He recalls that if you fail to offer a lift to it, the spook will chillingly appear in your rear view mirror sat in your back seat and the driver will befall a motoring accident not long after.

Steynton Church is by the roadside where the chilling spectre is said to be seen? is there a connection?

Other more rational explanations have ranged from reflections of light from other cars, reflections or lights bouncing off traffic signs, large birds swooping onto the road, drivers fatigue and over active imaginations. Regardless of the cause there is a epidemic of reports in Pembrokeshire of strange encounters on this stretch of road.

Here are some of the reports we have received through email, our Facebook page and direct to this website. If you have had a similar experience or need to contact us then please email paranormalchronicles@aol.com and we shall get back to you as soon as we can.

I have had a very similar experience on the same stretch of road. It was on the top of the hill at red stock coming back home at about 11pm last august. I thought I was going to hit a person that just jumped out in front of the car. I braked but there was no bump and nothing in the road. Really shock me up.

I had shivers reading these! Only about 2 months ago my colleague and I were working nights and driving from Milford to Haverfordwest. It was about 2 am and we were just approaching Johnston. As we did I saw a very tall lanky dark figure run straight across the road into the hedge! We stopped and got torches etc but there was no where it could have gone. It literally disappeared into the hedge. Some paramedics then stopped and told us about the road being haunted. The figure had long arms and legs and ran very quickly. Definitely blink and you’d have missed it.

I have just read with interest your article on paranormal activity along the road between Johnston and Steynton, Pembrokeshire. I grew up in Milford Haven and remember very much the accidents that occurred along that stretch, particularly near Redstock bridge. I have had my own experience when I was back visiting from Canada. My husband and I were driving down from London back to my parents house in Steynton and it was getting on for midnight. I began telling him about the ghost at Redstock bridge and how many people have witnessed this over the years. I believe that this is the cause of many accidents on this stretch over the years. As we came through Haverfordwest I had a very uneasy feeling and as we approached the Redstock bridge a figure we thought may have been a huge bird swooped across our windscreen. We nearly lost control of our vehicle and I was terrified. I will share this post and maybe some more of our friends will come forward with their stories. I have heard many over the years and the Redstock area is well known to be haunted.


Many years ago I had an Odd experience in that area but it was on the Steynton to Neyland  A477 road on the road between Steynton and Sentry Cross roundabout. I was driving a taxi at the time and I was on a return trip to Pembroke Dock it was a hot night 1988 and I just dropped a customer off in Milford Haven and was heading to Pembroke Dock and there was a big temperature drop in my car! For no logical reason no air conditioning in those window open and it occurred for about 400 yards. I did not see anything or anybody either but it was like driving into a freezer! Also I was not tired and  I was aware that something was wrong! I got back to the cab company base and I was shaken . I have talked with a few people who are local and they said something is on the roads in that area at night. It was about 1:30 am as well I do not scare easy as I am used to working shift work most of my life and but it did make the hair on my head stand up at that time so who knows.

I  work in Milford Haven on the Marina. Every day I travel to Milford Haven and 3 weeks ago I was travelling through the road from Johnston to Steynton in my car at about 9.20 in the morning, listening to uptown funk to be exact! And all of a sudden my car jolted and the engine light came on. It felt as if I had hit someone or something hit me! As soon as I got on the 40 mph road past the traffic lights the engine light came off. It happened in the dip of the road just before you go up the hill to the pub. I told my close friends and they all said that the road was known for being spooky but I did not think anything of it as I just thought it was a fault with my car until I read an article on the internet about the X factor fans who drove on a  road and their car “jolted” and felt like they had hit someone. the same thing happened exactly to me! There is definatley something with that road! I travel that road morning and night and until now nothing has ever happened. I do not remember seeing anything on the corner of the road or anything run across the road which was weird, but it definatley felt like I had hit something.

I’ve seen it! I was driving to work one morning 5:30am and saw a figure running up the side of the road, I swerved to miss hitting the person but when I looked back there was no one there. This was a couple of years ago.

Not surprising with the amount of deaths from car accidents on that stretch of road over the years. Also there is a graveyard behind the pub in Steynton so if there are ghosts haunting that road that could have something to do with it. A ghost of a woman has been seen numerous times on the stretch between Steynton and Johnston where the road bends and goes over the bridge.

I saw a woman there, and “knocked her over” but did not if you get me? I drove through her. Slammed brakes on, got out to check, no one there, was strange. Had hubby with me, he saw it too, so know it was not just me. then about a week later my friend came down to visit and said the same thing had happened to her mum!


My mum and two of her sisters were going to Fishguard one night in October, and as they were driving through Redstock, the sisters noticed a man tucked back in the hedge, on the left hand side. What struck them as odd is that he was dressed really old fashioned, with a hat on, and string tied around his knees. But they both saw him. Coming back, later on that night, they were approaching the bridge at Redstock, when it looked like there was a brick wall there that veered off to the right. We’ve lived in the area all our lives, and my sister who was driving, slowed down, panicking, as she knew there was no wall there. It was a road that veered to the left. They were all panicking and screaming what to do, and my mum said keep going, but slowly. When my sisters bumper touched the ‘wall’, it disappeared. If they didn’t know the road they’d have crashed into the bridge.
