This book concentrates on all aspects of the supernatural, paranormal and mysterious in the county of Northumberland. Ghosts, myths, legends, big cats, witchcraft, sacred wells and the little people all feature in the book.
Among the mysterious place to feature are: Bamburgh Castle - a number of different ghosts are said to lurk here, including the very active lady in the central keep. This is also the supposed location of the Lost Hand of St Oswald.
Elsdon - home to the notorious Brown Man of the Moors, an elemental spirit is in here as is the site of a Fairy Market, with a fairly long legend attached
The book is arranged by subject, though each and every area of Northumberland is covered to give a wide geographical spread around the county.
