Devon Ghosts & Legends
Devon Ghosts & Legends
  • Description

Among the anonymous grey monks, white ladies, limping nuns and headless horsemen that haunt the county, Devon has a host of highly recognisable celebrity ghosts that include royal figures, Richard the Lionheart, William of Orange and the Duke of Monmouth; high ranking churchmen Saint Thomas Becket and Bishop Henry Phillpotts; Elizabethan seadogs Walter Raleigh, Humphrey Gilbert and Francis Drake; writers OscarWilde, Charles Kingsley and Rudyard Kipling; famous personalities: Lady Nancy Astor, Isadora Duncan, Isambard Kingdom Brunel and Lawrence of Arabia. The fascinating stories of these famous lives and supernatural tales of their restless spirits in the afterlife are recounted in this veritable Who’s Who of phantoms that highlight and reflect the important role the area has played in historic world events.
