Tradition tells of a duck seen swimming along a stream and entering a hole in a ruin at Peasholm. Upon investigation, the observers found an underground passage which connected the ruin to buildings near to St. Mary’s church. After discovering the secret passage, the hole was closed.
Peasholm is part of Scarborough on the Yorkshire Coast. The old ruin was thought to be either some kind of fortification or a building belonging to the monks of Scarborough.
