Description
The British Isles are arguably amongst the most spectrally populous parts of the world - this guide is aimed at anyone interested in the ranks of dismembered, decapitated spectres that inhabit the countries' stately homes and blasted heaths. Region by region, ghost-seeker Richard Jones reveals, explains and delights in the tales of the tortured phantoms eager to restage their dark and turbulent pasts. The cast of characters ranges from ghostly legionaries that tramp the long-buried streets of Roman York to the malevolent fairy lights of Derbyshire's Longendale, from the shade of Ladford's murderous vicar to the grief-stricken white lady who may or may not have attended pop singer Madonna's wedding at Skibo Castle. The book is illustrated throughout and features extracts from original documents.
