Show synopsis Britain and Ireland must be amongst the most spectrally populous parts of the world, and this book is a must for anyone interested in the ranks of headless spectres and ghastly ghouls that inhabit the country's castles. Region by region, renowned ghost-seeker Richard Jones reveals, explains and delights in the tales of tortured phantoms eager to restage their dark and turbulent past. They are all included here, from the ghostly queens that hurl themselves from the ramparts to the malevolent monks that wander the corridors - and from the shades that tour the infamous Tower of London to the grief-stricken white lady who may or may not have attended Madonna's wedding at Dornoch's legendary Skibo Castle. Richard Jones's authoritative and entertaining guide to haunted sites is handsomely designed and illustrated throughout with spectacular photographs, detailed, four-colour maps and extracts from original documents.
