Ghostly CumbriaeBook - 2011
From reports of haunted castles, stately halls, hotels, public houses, Roman forts, stone circles, and even England's deepest lake, to heart-stopping accounts of apparitions, poltergeists, and related supernatural phenomena, Ghostly Cumbria investigates twenty of the most haunted locations in the area today. Drawing on historical and contemporary sources, this selection includes a Grey Lady said to walk the lanes at Levens Hall in Kendal; the ghost of Mary, Queen of Scots at Carlisle Castle; a despicable jester at Muncaster Castle; and several ghosts at the Kirkstone Pass Inn at Ambleside, including a young boy killed by a coach outside the building, a young woman who died whilst travelling along the road during a snow storm, and a seventeenth-century coachman who lurks around the bar. Illustrated with forty photographs, together with access details for each location, this book will appeal to all those interested in finding out more about Cumbria's haunted heritage.
