This is Anne Bradford's seventh collection
of true ghost stories from the Worcestershire area, she has been collecting
eye-witness accounts of strange events since 1992, when she was inspired by a
Victorian collection of ghost stories in the archives of her local library.
Illustrated by Glenn James with drawings
which have a gothic interest and a bohemian streak, each chapter deals with a
specific region with anecdotal narratives of unexplained phenomena. The many
short stories include The Powick Poltergeist (Worcester), The Hound of Cofton
Lane (The Lickey Hills), Faggots and Phantom Footsteps (Upton-on-Severn) and
The Growling Ghost (Bordesley Abbey).
