London's Underground is associated with a multitude of ghostly stories and sightings, particularly on stations and abandoned lines, many of which are in close proximity to burial sites from centuries ago. This chilling book reveals well-known and hitherto unpublished tales of spirits, spectres and other spooky occurrences on one fo the oldest railway networks in the world. The stories of sightings include the ghost of an actress regularly witnessed on Aldwych Station and the 'Black Nun' at Bank station. Eerie noises, such as the cries of thirteen-year-old Anne Naylor, who was murdered in 1758 near to the site of what is now Farringdon station, and the screams of children who were in an accident at Bethnal Green station during the Second World War, are still heard echoing. These and many more ghostly accounts are recorded in fascinating detail in this book, which is a must-read for anyone interested in the mysterious and murky history of London's Underground.
