A look at the reported ghosts of the Black Country. However unlike the usual procession of well-known spectres roaming even better-known buildings, here we also look at the sightings of ordinary people in their own homes. Here is a collection of traditional and original narratives ranging from the boating kids in the Dudley canal tunnel to the spectral head of a woman who tore her hair out in sheer despair. There are tales involving tragedy, murder, humour, sadness and even the absurd.
