The ancient buildings that stand in the Norfolk landscape are often associated with the supernatural and stories of strange events. In this book author Pamela Brooks visits the castle and priories, often now in ruins, which themselves have long histories entwined with fascinating tales of strange goings-on and mysterious apparitions. Herself a self-confessed `addict of ruins and ancient buildings' the author encourages, where public access is allowed, her readers to visit for themselves these places - with the warning to be wary! Here lurk the spirits of murdered monarchs, ghostly grey monks and vanishing silver chalices!
Sites covered include: Baconsthorpe Castle * Bacton Abbey * Beeston Priory * Buckenham Castle * Burnham Priory * Burgh Castle * Caister Castle * Castle Acre * Castle Rising * Gresham Castle * Hickling Priory * Marham Abbey * North Elmham Chapel * Norwich Castle * Pentney Priory * St Benet's Abbey * Thetford Priory *Walsingham *Wymondham Abbey. And many more.
Along with these terrifying tales the author imparts more serious historic information and illustrations regarding these important sites and readers will find here as much to fascinate them as to fear.
