  • Related

Meticulously researched by former Windsor police chief-turned-paranormal sleuth Brian Langston, True Ghosts and Ghouls of Windsor & Eton presents an unparalleled investigation into the myriad of macabre and spectral entities which have haunted Windsor & Eton for countless generations.

Spanning the centuries up to the present day, this supernatural guidebook chronicles over 200 true tales of hauntings, demon possession, witchcraft and wickedness, many making their first appearance in print.

Who was the monstrous ‘Vampire’ who plagued Georgian Windsor and craved human flesh?

Is Eton home to the only church in England to have been closed by the malevolent actions of the Devil?

What was the wolf-like beast seen emerging from the Thames twice by police officers during the late twentieth century?

What were the nocturnal horrors which caused terrified sentries to desert their post at Windsor Castle?

What was the ‘Spring Heeled Jack’ of Spital graveyard which preyed on Victorian ladies?

What gruesome fate befell the bloated corpse of HenryVIII and does his ghost still stalk Windsor Castle?

How did the neck bone of Charles I end up on a Doctor’s dining table in Mayfair?

Which famous Eton Schoolboy killed a bully with black magic and took his secret to the grave?

Did Queen Victoria secretly commune with the spirit of her beloved Albert and was it her ghost which terrified Castle workers during the 1930s?

Did the ghost of Herne the Hunter kill a ‘Teddy boy’ in the 1950s?

In this diabolical dossier, the author unearths the fascinating and spine-tingling occult history of Windsor and Eton. Mystery, bloodshed and fear are never far away in this chilling perambulation through the ancient streets of Britain’s most haunted borough.

Ghost Club member and author Brian Langston is the former Assistant Chief Constable for Thames Valley Police. He lived and worked in Berkshire for over a quarter of a century and for many years was the police chief for Windsor & Eton. Since retirement he has drawn upon his extensive investigative experience to conduct research into mysteries and paranormal phenomena. He currently lives in the Languedoc region of Southern France with his wife Jenny and a large family of adopted cats, where he writes and compulsively haunts fleamarkets, adding to his collection of curious and macabre artefacts.
