From Evington Park House we cycle out to the countryside around Little Stretton to see the events of 5 July 1919. Bella Wright and Ronald Light are cyclling at the spot where the young woman was last seen alive. Join us and see the events of that fateful day. The police put out an appeal to anyone who saw a man on a green bicycle to come forward and help their enquiries. After a while, things went quiet for a few months until - by sheer luck - a mystery green bicycle would be found in the canal near Freemans Common... It was now 1920 and this little bit of luck would open the case wide again. ... On Monday the 23rd of February, 1920, Enoch Whitehouse, a canal bargeman, noticed a green bicycle caught up in his towrope...

It is 5 July 1919 and Bella Wright is out cycling from Stoughton to Gaulby when she meets a man on a green bicycle. Come and see what happened to make the case a talking point to this day.
