The half-timbered buildings that cling to the steep streets and narrow lanes of the city of Lincoln groan under the weight of thousands of years of history. Atop this maze of courtyards and alleyways, nooks and crannies stands the imposing Gothic outline of the cathedral. Not surprisingly, this ancient city is rife with tales of spectral spirits and ghastly ghouls. Even the more workaday areas can boast haunted pubs, residences and mysterious goings-on in the theatre. In this book the area immediately around Lincoln itself is explored, with reports of dancing stones, roadside apparitions and omens of death in deserted churchyards. An in-depth introduction and a glossary of spooky terms is included to guide the reader on their spine-tingling journey around Lincoln. David Brandon is an expert on paranormal reports, and is the author of numerous collections of ghost stories for the History Press.
