Overview

This richly illustrated A-Z of Gloucestershire's towns and villages contains manifold mysteries of every kind. There are many places in the region that might be termed mysterious, from crumbling manor houses, castles, and ruins, to ancient woods and trackways where standing stones and tombstones lie forgotten. This volume explores them all. Added to this are reports of hauntings and ghostly activity, sightings of UFOs and mysterious creatures, and the occasional appearance of crop circles; in a more sinister vein, several particularly gruesome murders from the past are recounted, all of which remain unsolved. These events have, over time, become part of the area’s folklore. This fascinating collection of inexplicable events will delight residents and visitors alike. No one with an interest in the darker side of Gloucestershire's history should leave home without it.
