Haunted York
Haunted York
  • Description
  • Related

York has been described as 'the most haunted city in Europe' There are haunted churches, haunted pubs, haunted museums, haunted theatres and haunted snickets. There are ghost hunters, ghost walks, ghost cruises, ghost festivals and, obviously, ghosts.

What there isn't (or hasn't been up until now) is a detailed guide to the numerous locations where these ghosts are residing.

This is the definitive guide to the spooks of York. The demonic hounds, the spectral monks, the wailing children and all the other deranged denizens from York's bloody and ever-changing past.

Fully illustrated, each story is numbered and marked on the various maps that are reproduced throughout the book along with historical facts, interesting asides and fascinating articles.

Just remember ... don't stray too far from the path.

Vincent Danks was born in 1961 in Nakuru, Kenya and has always been annoyed at having been brought back to England by his parents when he was eighteen months old as it’s a lot colder in England and he doesn’t like the cold. Having then been brought north to York when he was twelve (where it was even colder) things at least looked pretty and the gothic surroundings and rich ghostly heritage have clearly had an untoward influence on him. When not documenting the spectral manifestations that are as much a part of York as Vikings and large churches he draws comics and creates gothic-themed artwork.
