Sally Tonge, well-known Shropshire storyteller, here retells some of the county's best ghost stories in her own inimitable style.
From the "Phantom Funeral of Ratlinghope" to the "Bagbury Bull" and from the murderous "Bloody Jack of Shrewsbury" to the eerie "White Lady of Longnor": there is something here to frighton everyone.
This fascinating introduction discusses and explains the recurring motifs in the tales, such as bottled ghosts, white ladies, encounters with the Devil, and also considers these stories' basis in historical fact.
This book is illustrated with a selection of drawings and atmospheric photographs. "Shropshire Ghost Stories" is bound to be a popular addition to the county's bookshelves.
