We have a strange and profound fascination with experiences of seeing or sensing spirits from beyond the grave, and in Yorkshire, we have a place with more than its fair share of such manifestations. The county is vast, and there is a violent history in the tales of its castles, abbeys, mansions, and gaols. There are ample Yorkshire records of ghosts, boggards, guy trash dogs, and the more disturbing `elementals’. Some restless souls are perhaps desperate criminals from the gallows, while others are powerful men who have died through treason or betrayal.
Hauntings in Yorkshire is a different kind of ghost case book. It brings together both well-known traditional stories and experiences gathered by the author from his own research and from testimonies and reports by Yorkshire people who have contacted him with their accounts of paranormal experiences. Tales by ordinary folk, therefore, mix here with famous murders and horrible deaths, all introduced by a preface from paranormal expert and TV personality Ian Lawman.
