'Haunted Huddersfield' is well researched, has clear writing and is up-to-date. The book is illustrated with new photos and it is concise and reasonably priced. There is a good introduction and bibliography, both of which indicate the amount of work which went into writing it. The book has an associated blog - cited on page 95. The Spooky Isles website has an interview of Kai Roberts which reveals the perspective he adopted when writing the book. Kai Roberts consciously took an open minded approach to the apparently paranormal occurrences which he describes.

Until now the only comprehensive book about the ghostly and haunted history of the Huddersfield district has been the long out of print 'Legends and Traditions of Huddersfield and its District', by Philip Ahier, published from 1940-1945. For most people, Ahier's excellent two volume book is now only accessible as a reference copy in Huddersfield Local History Library. 'Haunted Huddersfield' won't replace Ahier's book, which has scholarly detail and long quotations from primary sources. However, 'Haunted Huddersfield' covers more recent hauntings and it is easier to get to the most interesting information.

At 96 pages 'Haunted Huddersfield' is short enough to provide an entertaining read for busy people. I recommend it to local history buffs and to local walkers and to anyone who is interested in spooky legends and possibly paranormal experiences.

I enjoyed this read. Does what it says on the tin, well worth the read if your either from Huddersfield, Yorkshire or just a fan of ghosts and such.

A good read for those of us living in the area. I'll enjoy pointing out the places in the book to the unbeliever other half.

Terrible. Sensationalist tripe of the lowest order. The case based in Netherton, ask any local, is utter fiction and the same can be said for other entries.

There are plenty of well researched, well written books on all aspects of the paranormal to be had on Amazon. If you need a starting point, try David Fontana's "Is There An Afterlife." I guarantee that you'll find methodically and scientifically investigated hauntings far more stimulating than books like this.
