Worcestershire the Haunted County is Anne Bradford’s eighth collection of true ghost stories and strange happenings from across the county, recounted by those who experienced them.
The county has the dubious privilege of being the location of the savage massacres of the Battle of Worcester in 1651, when most towns and villages were involved in one way or another. Paranormal researchers have long suggested that violent events can be impregnated into the environment and sometimes sensitive individuals are able to pick up on this.
So here are over 100 records of the many ghosts and hauntings in a county that suffered more than most the violence and misery of the Civil War. Stories vary from the helpful entity at Worcester Cathedral, the ghosts of Grafton Manor in Bromsgrove to the black pudding apparition of Droitwich, the glowing hands of Kidderminster, the possessed ballerinas of Oakenshaw in Redditch and Ledbury’s lone rider.
