The history of Neath and the surrounding area dates back to Roman times, so it is little wonder that this small Welsh town is teaming with all manner of ghosts, from the long dead monks that still wander among the ruins of Neath Abbey to the voices of ghostly miners to be found deep in the mountains.
In this chilling new book, local paranormal expert Robert King explores graveyards, visits grand old houses and drinks in some of Neath's eeriest pubs to reveal a hidden past, with tales of cruelty and violence, of forbidden love and broken hearts, of charity and compassion.
A policeman encounters a terrifying spectre in a Neath churchyard; a young mother receives unexpected help from beyond the grave; a ghostly organ plays on in Gwynn Hall and a shadowy black cat wanders the Margam Forest...With his detailed local knowledge, King presents a new take on traditional Welsh myths and legends, alongside gripping true stories and first-person accounts from the people of Neath, from the heart-warming to the hair-raising!
