County Durham is an area of outstanding beauty that is primarily recognised for its lead mining and farming industries. With rolling hills, quaint countryside villages and a historic city as its capital, County Durham is a stunning region to behold and it is truly haunted. Join the North East's foremost ghost hunter, Darren W. Ritson on this spine-chilling tour. Ghostly galloping steeds silently make their way across the moors and hilltops. Priests and monks haunt religious buildings and poltergeists plague people in their homes. Old pubs and inns are bursting at the seams with long-dead patrons, and ancient battles are seemingly being silently fought again. Whichever way you turn in County Durham, you can be sure a ghost is lurking nearby. With a foreword from one of the leading lights in paranormal investigation, Scotland's own Malcolm Robinson, this book is sure to delight ghost enthusiasts, paranormal investigators and anyone else with an interest in all things preternatural.
