For such a small county, reports of supernatural happenings around Berkshire are surprisingly plentiful and varied. The haunting figures range from shades of kings, queens and dukes to apparitions of sobbing maidens and moaning men. They haunt all manner of places such as castles, mansions, churchyards, cottages, follies and grottoes. The ghosts are sometimes victims such as wretched murdered children; other times they are the criminals like murderous policemen and thieving highwaymen. Supposedly less scary are the reports of phantom vicars, landlords and nuns. This intriguing and very readable volume contains numerous reported sightings of ghosts across one of the oldest counties in England.
