This fascinating book contains a terrifying collection of true-life tales from around Berwick. Take a tour of this ancient town from Berwick Castle to the town walls and discover an unnerving assortment of poltergeists, spectres and myths, including a witch's curse, the warning toll of a ghostly bell, chilling vampiric encounters, and the inauspicious spirit of a weeping boy. Drawing on historical and contemporary sources and containing many tales which have never before been published, Haunted Berwick will delight and thrill everyone interested in the paranormal.
