Somerset is one of the most haunted counties in the country and this superb book features a wealth of spine-tingling stories that will have you on the edge of your seat.
Read about the ghostly nurse who would visit wards at night, a screaming scull never to be removed from its location and a ghost train that can be heard and sometimes even seen.
There’s the chilling story that surrounded a 17th-century mansion and the distressing sound of a child crying; the unexplained events that took place during filming of Doctor Who at a popular tourist location and also the jail that experienced inexplicable occurrences.
The book also details many of Somerset’s haunted castles, churches, hotels, theatres and areas of open country with a spooky reputation. For readers looking for a spooky day (or night!) out, the author has arranged the haunted locations in a handy gazetteer, so readers can easily find those closest to them.
