AUTHOR: Pamela Brooks
Essex Ghosts & Legends
Essex Ghosts & Legends
  • Description
  • Related

Essex is blessed with more than its share of ancient and interesting buildings many of which have associations with the supernatural and stories of strange events.

In this book author Pamela Brooks takes the reader on a journey around the county visiting these buildings, often now in ruins, which themselves have long histories entwined with fascinating tales of strange goings-on and mysterious apparitions. Herself a self-confessed ‘addict of ruins and ancient buildings’ the author encourages, where public access is allowed, her readers to visit for themselves these places - with the warning to be wary!

Along with these terrifying tales the author imparts more serious historic information and illustrations regarding these important sites and readers will find here as much to fascinate them as to fear.

Pamela Brooks is a freelance author, historian and journalist who was born in Essex and, following a degree in English, has lived in Norwich for over 20 years. She has written several books on the history of Norfolk and Norwich, and also writes romantic fiction as Kate Hardy; she was shortlisted for the Romantic Novelists' Association Romance Prize in 2006 and 2009, and won it in 2008. She lives with her husband, two children, a Springer spaniel, and too many books to count!

Imprint: Halsgrove. ISBN 978 0 85704 011 4, paerback, 210x148mm, 136 pages. Published August 2010.
