From hair-raising first-hand accounts of unexplained sightings and paranormal phenomena to the search for evidence of ghosts, this eerie and richly illustrated tour around the historic town of Spalding and the surrounding area features many chilling stories of ghostly encounters. Amongst the spooky tales included are a pub where a resident ghost was so determined to make his presence known that he hurled a beer bottle at a member of staff, a hotel where a mischievous spirit sits on the beds and leaves ghostly handprints on a mirror, a sports club where cheeky spirits make their presence felt literally, and the chilling story of an evil spirit so intent on harassing a local family that it could only be removed by exorcism. Also featured are exclusive and intriguing findings from the first ever paranormal investigation at the fifteenth-century Ayscoughfee Hall & Museum, in search of the legendary White Lady.
