If you want to get to know a place and its history, take some time to explore its ghost stories. Just a brief look at the spooky tales that people love to tell about Lincolnshire reveals a great deal about the events that have shaped this fascinating place. From the military forces in the county to the plague coming to the region’s towns to the impact of the legendary Boadicea, the stories cleverly capture many layers of Lincolnshire’s past. Even if they are simply fragments or distortions, they still hold elements of history within them, if we look hard enough.
Lincolnshire’s ghost stories also prove to be an alternative way to record people’s experiences. They’re a fascinating kind of folk history. Some, like the story of the Black Lady of Bradley Woods, are just so sad and striking that there is little chance of forgetting them once you’ve heard them. These tales are the ones that you hope aren’t based on truth. Not because of the ghosts, but because of the human suffering recounted in them.
On a lighter note, some of the ghost stories of Lincolnshire are just plain weird and that’s what makes them so interesting. From ghost trains to a haunted pie shop, Lincolnshire’s ghost stories cross into all kinds of worlds. They remind us just how varied a place the county is. Happy exploring!
