Chalford Amberley Publishing 2009 1848681704 / 9781848681705 1st Edition Paperback New Book 
Published in a handy A-Z format, here you will find accounts of well-known hauntings, as well as many previously undiscovered locations. The author also attempts to provide fresh knowledge and personal accounts of new and traditional stories. Join author Anthony Poulton-Smith on a ghostly tour of the Cotswolds; Meet Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, Catherine Parr, and Margaret of Anjou and discover the memories of Lord Berkeley, Lady Alice, Sir Lawrence Tanfield, and Fred Archer. Visit the famous homes of the region, including Blenheim Palace, Owlpen Manor, Sudeley Castle and the manor at Nether Lypiatt. Find the other kind of spirits in an assortment of pubs and hotels, churches and churchyards. As the reader opens the pages of Paranormal Cotswolds they will be confronted with a notorious highwayman, wrakes, demons, monks and nuns aplenty, bells, battles, a bear, horses (with and without coaches), a scythe, and even a lump of wood! Discover what gave the Trouble House Inn its name and uncover the problem at the Devil's Churchyard. Almost a hundred ghostly narratives are supported by fifty photographs. This book will delight the ghost hunters and the spiritual, intrigue the doubters, and even make the skeptical think again - it happened to the author, as you will discover. CYBref A120
