Haunted Sheffield Paperback / softback
Everyone loves a good ghost story and the city of Sheffield seems to have plenty of them.
The tales contained in this book are told by the Steel City Tours ghost walkers themselves, Mr and Mrs P.
Dreadful, collected over the years and now brought together here for all to read.
There are tales of haunted pubs like the Brown Bear pub in Norfolk Street, where a ghostly coachman is a regular visitor, the Graduate in Surrey Street where, much to the distress of the staff, a lady in black walks through the kitchen and exits through the wall and the Museum pub in Orchard Square where a ghost knocks over the beer glasses!
The Lyceum, like theatres everywhere, has also attracted spooky visitors and claims three ghosts, including the enigmatic 'Ben' who usually asks passers-by for an update on 'the news' and smells of horses.
Ghost encounters are described in the most unlikely places including the Central Library, the Cathedral, Boots the Chemists and the Roxy nightclub; all, it seems, have their own ghosts.
After reading these tales you will find yourself glancing nervously over your shoulder when you next walk the streets of the city.
