5.0 out of 5 stars Cornish chills....!
An excellent exploration of the most haunted corner of England. Many books have and will be published about Cornwall and its ghosts - many of them perfunctory - full of vague descriptions, herarsay and recycled anecdotes - but none of that here.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best in this series...
I've read quite a few of the "Haunted..." range by Tempus, my personal favourites so far being "Haunted Guildford" and "Haunted Chesterfield". This one, about the county of Cornwall, would fit better under the category of folk-lore rather than ghosts I think.

An excellent exploration of the most haunted corner of England. Many books have and will be published about Cornwall and its ghosts - many of them perfunctory - full of vague descriptions, herarsay and recycled anecdotes - but none of that here. Instead, and demonstrating a fair degree of research, the author delves right into the historical contexts behind the alleged hauntings and happenings and does so with a strong descriptive style and a touch of dry humour. Complimented by some rare and unique photographs, this is an informative and evocative excursion into the unknown. .

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best in this series..., 7 Dec 2006
This review is from: Haunted Cornwall (Images of England S.) (Paperback)
I've read quite a few of the "Haunted..." range by Tempus, my personal favourites so far being "Haunted Guildford" and "Haunted Chesterfield". This one, about the county of Cornwall, would fit better under the category of folk-lore rather than ghosts I think. There are very few modern instances and many of the stories deal with faries and the like. Very intersting for some, and if so, then you'd find this book great, but I prefer stories about haunted shops, private houses, etc- stories where you think that there could be an element of truth rather than just folk-tales.

Saying that, though, this is very well written and I enjoyed the author's style.
