Haunted Cheltenham by Diz White is a collection of true life, chilling tales of ghosts, ghouls and apperitions from this picture perfect Regency town. At £9.99, this paperback original describes supernatural phenomena in heart-stopping, spooky detail.
Cheltenham lies in the centre of the Cotswolds and is certainly its jewel in the crown boasting an abundance of elegant period architecture. The town is rich in history, and it is this past which has surely helped supply its castles, pubs, theatres, streets and houses with more than their fair share of ghouls, shades and poltergeists. The horror is taken up a further notch in Prestbury, the most haunted village in Britain, lying within Cheltenham’s borders.
From accounts of tumps, humps and bumps in the night, to the Devil’s Chimney of the Damned. Scary stories of a Civil War spook, a spinet-playing shade and a time-stealing sprite. Descriptions of Sudley Castle’s poltergeist, a snake-ridden, skull-faced phantom and a bedroom-wrecking banshee all feature in the tales of Cheltenham and surrounds.
Meet Diz White at Waterstones, Cheltenham on Saturday 4 September 11am til 1pm.
