Join author Anthony Poulton-Smith on a ghostly tour of the Cotswolds. Meet Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, Catherine Parr, and Margaret of Anjou. Discover the memories of Lord Berkeley, Lady Alice, Sir Lawrence Tanfield, and Fred Archer. Visit the famous homes of the region, including Blenheim Palace, Owlpen Manor, Sudeley Castle, and the manor at Nether Lypiatt. Find the other kind of spirits in an assortment of pubs and hotels, churches and churchyards.
Quite rightly famed for the beauty of its landscape and delicious honey-coloured Cotswold stone, discover that paranormal encounters rarely resemble a human form in a sheet. Indeed within these pages are a notorious highwayman, rakes, demons, monks and nuns aplenty, bells, battles, a bear, horses (with and without coaches), a scythe, and even a lump of wood! What gave the Trouble House Inn its name? What is the problem at the Devil's Churchyard? Why are pennies found in stories associated with Dursley? And who was the anonymous telephone caller?
Almost a hundred narratives are supported by fifty photographs. This book will delight the ghost hunters and the spiritual, intrigue the doubters, and even make the skeptical think again - it happened to the author, as you will discover.
