Summary

The ghostly little monk of Foulridge and the giant apparition from Heaton Norris are just two of the denizens of the North-West you might not care to meet on a dark, stormy evening. But for those intrepid souls whose hearts quicken at the thought of eerie footsteps and muffled groans Peter Underwood has assembled an impressive collection of traditional legends.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

I love all the old ghost stories

A good collection of ghost stories from the North West of England. The narration is quite fast, so I turned the speed down a little, there are a few from homes of old Coronation Street actors, and quite a few from old landmarks in the North West. If you click the three little dots in the top right corner of the screen, you can open a PDF of accompanying photos from the book, which I found by accident. There's a few places I want to visit now that I've heard these stories.

Stilted

I know this book is older, but it is stilted. The only reason I got through so much of it is because I fell asleep and it played on through the the night.

Great Collection of Hauntings


This was another collection of ghosts found in a particular area of England. Legendary paranormal expert Peter Underwood shares tales of hauntings from his files. There are quite a few and sure to delight paranormal enthusiasts. I read this book using immersion reading while listening to the audio book. It was an interesting account of the many haunted places in this locale.
