Haunted Blackpool by Stephen Mercer

Blackpool has long been a favourite for holidaymakers and conjures up cosy images of theme-parks, donkey rides and ice-cream. However, this popular seaside resort also harbours some disturbing secrets. Discover the shadier side of Blackpool with this terrifying collection of true-life tales from across the town. Featuring the ghosts of some of the most iconic buildings, such as Blackpool Tower, the Grand Theatre and Blackpool Opera House, this book is guaranteed to make your blood run cold. Drawing on historical and contemporary sources and containing many tales which have never before been published, Haunted Blackpool will delight everyone interested in the paranormal.
