Hauntings in Yorkshire
Hauntings in Yorkshire
  • Description

We have a strange and profound fascination with experiences of seeing or sensing spirits from beyond the grave, and in Yorkshire we have a place with more than its fair share of such manifestations.The county is vast, and there is a violent history in the tales of its castles, abbeys, mansions and gaols. There are ample Yorkshire records of ghosts, boggards, guytrash dogs and the more disturbing ‘elementals’. Some restless souls are perhaps desperate criminals from the gallows, while others are powerful men who have died through treason or betrayal.

Hauntings in Yorkshire is a different kind of ghost case book. It brings together both well-known traditional stories and experiences gathered by the author from his own researches and from testimonies and reports by Yorkshire people who have contacted him with their accounts of paranormal experience. Tales by ordinary folk therefore mix here with famous murders and horrible deaths, all introduced by a preface from paranormal expert and TV personality Ian Lawman.

Stephen Wade is a freelance writer and lecturer, researching both crime history and paranormal studies. He has written a collection of Lincolnshire ghost stories and published over 30 books of historical studies. He has recently published other books onYorkshire and is currently working on a collection of gallows tales fromYork.
