Haunted Halifax and DistricteBook - 2014
Nestled amidst the windswept moorlands of the South Pennines, Halifax has always had a wild reputation. "From Hell, Hull, and Halifax, good Lord deliver us" ran the Beggars' Litany. But was it just a grisly fate at the hands of the Halifax Gibbet, England's last guillotine, that they feared? From historical boggarts to modern poltergeists, the region teems with intruders from beyond the veil: they stalk the gritstone crags and the austere chapels, the tumbledown mills, and the ancient taverns. Haunted Halifax will explore the manifestations and territory of these unquiet spirits, all in the context of the area's colorful history and wider folkloric context. With encounters with local legends such as Branwell Brontë, it will intrigue visitors and residents alike.
