Witnesses say he is a large bearded man wearing a seafaring uniform. Many years ago, a sea captain was staying here with committed suicide. He had returned from sea to find his wife with child had been murdered in Toddington. After a short period of grief, he hanged himself in a bedroom of the pub. A Royalist cavalier also haunts the Bedford Arms from the English Civil War. This middle-aged man, witnesses have seen, standing beside the fireplace in the small bar. He, observers describe, as a small man, wearing a red tunic, plumed hat with leaning on a cane.
