About this book
Just in time for Halloween, this is an enormously enjoyable, spooky collection of ghost-sightings over the centuries. From the author of "London", which sold over 400,000 copies. The accounts range from the door slamming, shrieking ghost of Hinton Manor in the 1760s to the moaning child that terrified Wordsworth's nephew at Cambridge.
From medieval times to today, stories have been told and apparitions seen - ghosts who avenge injustice, souls who long for peace, spooks who just want to have fun. This title is a treasury of such sightings. It includes accounts ranging from the door-slamming, shrieking ghost of Hinton Manor in the 1760s to the headless bear of Kidderminster.
