This creepy collection of tales take the reader on a tour of the cemeteries, pubs, theatres, hospitals, tunnels, mines and caverns of Derbyshire.
Drawing on contemporary and historical sources, Haunted Derbyshire contains many creepy accounts of spirits, spectres and poltergeists - including the Mad Monk of North Wingfield, the crying angel of Etwell and the headless ghost of Wenley Hill. It also features some of Derbyshire's best-known characters, including Florence Nightingale and George Stephenson, the Railway King.
If you have ever windered why the Chesterfield Canal veered from its straight course, why horses shy at crossroads, empty theatre seats move, or miners leave shoes in mines, Haunted Derbyshire will give you the chilling answers.
