The British Isles must be amongst the most spectrally populous parts of the world, and this book is a must for anyone interested in the ranks of dismembered, decapitated spectres that inhabit the country's stately homes and blasted heaths.Region by region, renowned ghost-seeker Richard Jones reveals, explains and delights in the tales of tortured phantoms eager to restage their dark and turbulent past. They are all included here, from the ghostly legionaries that tramp the long-buried streets of Roman York to the malevolent fairy lights of Derbyshire's Longdendale - and from the shade of Lapford's murderous vicar to the grief-stricken white lady who may or may not have attended Madonna's wedding at Dornoch's legendary Skibo Castle.Richard Jones' authoritative and entertaining guide to haunted sites is handsomely designed and illustrated throughout with extraordinary ghostly photographs, detailed, four-colour maps and extracts from original documents.
