Haunted Darlington

    By

    From historic encounters with murdered men and lingering lovers, to eyewitness accounts of ghostly animals that still fiercely guard their final resting place, Darlington is bursting with tales of phantoms and ghouls that are sure to give you goosebumps. Robert Woodhouse tracks down background stories, explanations and key evidence for the town's supernatural incidents as he delves into the region's hair-raising past. Beware of the `Tartan Lady' at Blackwell Grange who has been seen to step out of her life-sized portrait to alarm passers-by, the `Headless Hobgoblin' of Neasham who lures unwitting residents to a watery death in the River Tees, and the young girl in Victorian clothing who makes unscheduled appearances at North Road Station. Leaving no stone unturned, Haunted Darlington will enthral everyone with an interest in the paranormal.
