Hauntings and legends frighten and fascinate us. They twist our imaginations; make shadows into spectres, and the dark places in our homes into things to fear. Yet, for all of that, we cannot seem to turn away from them. Perhaps this is because, at their heart, these stories are so very human. Death, fear, revenge, hate and love: ghost stories and similar tales of terror bring to us all the facets of good drama set against an otherworldly mise-en-scène.
Eerie Britain 2 tells the stories behind ten more of the most intriguing and irresistible places to be found scattered around the British Isles; places whose stories have been whispered for hundreds, sometimes thousands, of years. This small and ancient land has long been riddled with crumbling castles, cob-webbed mansions and creaky old public houses so it is no surprise that a generous slice of them have picked up a few non-corporeal non-paying guests over the centuries. Indeed, in some places the resident spooks are packed in like sardines in a tin can.
So, draw the curtains, cut yourself an extra large piece of that chocolate cake you’ve been saving for Maud (she doesn’t deserve it anyway), throw another log onto the crackling fireplace and snuggle into the heavy folds of a warm blanket as we cast a glance at ten more of the most petrifying places, ghoulish goings-on and horrifying haunts to ever grace the British Isles.
