This Side of the Pond
Notes from an Uprooted Englishwoman
April 25, 2019
A country with thousands of years’ worth of human infestation is bound to rack up ghost stories, from beheaded queens to translucent monks ringing bells that are no longer there. You can’t swing a cat in the UK without hitting a supposedly haunted pub, priory or stately home.
You’d have thought that, by now, we’d have collected more than enough spooky legends to keep even the most avid ghost hunter occupied, but apparently not. I stumbled across a new addition to the haunted library this week and I’m still trying to figure out who thought it was worthy of inclusion.
